Looking forward to read your book. What advice would you give to folks that have passed the SCJP 6 exam?

Folks that have already passed any version of the S C J P exam don't need to write the OCA Java SE 7 Programmer exam. If you want, you can upgrade to the OCP Java SE 7 Programmer exam by writing its upgrade exam (1Z0-805).

If the *only* reason that you want to upgrade to the OCP Java 7 Programmer certification is that you want to write the 'Professional' Java exams, then you don't have to. With the SCJP6 certification under you belt, you can write all the other Java exams, which have OCP Java SE 7 Programmer exam as their pre-requisite.

For an example, the Oracle's information page for OCP Java EE 5 Business Component Developer certification states its pre-requisite as Oracle Certified Professional, Java (SE 5, SE 6,or SE 7) Programmer OR Sun Certified Java Programmer (any edition).

Is there any other reason, why you wish to write the OCA Java SE 7 Programmer exam?

With respect,
Mala
