Hi Everyone.

I have started preparing for Oracle Certified Java Programmer V 6. I will be upgrading to 7 later.

I was learning regular expressions from chapter-6 from Kathy & Bert Book. I want to know, how can i find some practice for regular expressions which i have
learnt. Seems like a very interesting topic. Kindly help.

Hey Ben Prequel,

For your query, the best way is you need to spent time to create your own code. That will help you more to understand the concepts correctly and also you want to take sample mock exams. In my knowledge you can go for SCJP 6 certification training lab material after complete Kathy & Bert Book.. This will help you more.

Good Luck for your preparation...

Dear Ben,

I strongly agree with Jhon. Java uses, python based regular expressions for your information.

On the other hand, you can pick up some sample problems from your daily life. For example, how to create a regex for an email, how to create a regex for
a credit card or a telephone number. Regular expressions cannot be learnt in one day. It's a very strong language itself and it takes time to gain mastery in it.
Most important thing is, you can keep practising. For further reference, i would strongly suggest you to read Mastering Regular Expressions.
