Hi Everyone ,

I have passed OCAJP 7 with 78 %.

Thank you coderench forum and all volunteers here for all your quick reply for every question.

Resource used :
1) Mala Gupta's Book which name is: OCA Java SE 7 - Certification Guide
2) Enthuware's Mocks
3) JLS 7
4) this forum questions and answers ,all suggestions

My Enthuware test results are as below :

Starter Test: 63
Test 1: 53
Test 2: 65
Test 3: 69
Test 4: 70
Test 5: 74
Test 6: 72
Last Day Test: 74.

I was preparing for this exam from last 4 to 5 months ,
Initially for 2 month I started with 2 hrs a day, reading study guide spending lots of time coding examples , playing around code.I had just started giving mock exams and i was almost ready to attempt exam.....

but in a meanwhile due to some new assignment at work i cannot give much time for preparation.

A Gap of around 2 months !!, this 2 months i was completely out of OCJP study.
I resumed my study and need to finish everything in just a week!!!

Clear understanding of concepts from study guide helps me . I must say reading JLS 7 helps me though it seems clumsy it clear all concepts.
I got many tips like this on coderench site.
Also Enthuware mock exams helps me, its a complete solution to OCJP certification needs.

To sum up ,
What helps me in to pass certification exam :
1) A reference guide : OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I Certification Guide: Prepare for the 1ZO-803 exam
2) Getting my hands dirty by playing with codes.
3)CODERENCH site blog to get expert comments on each of my question.
4)Enthuware mock exams
5) JLS 7 reading

Thank you again for all members for all your support , teachings and motivation to do certification from each and every post.

Thanks and Regards
Aditya C Chaudhari

Congratulations, champion! Great achievement. Well done! Now it's definitely time to relax and have a (or another drink).

Don't forget to add your name to the OcajpWallOfFame.
Stop it! You're embarassing me! And you are embarrassing this tiny ad!
