Hi travis thompson,

I need to obtain this cert within 6 months.


Do you have Java working experience ? or Do you know Java basics ??. If you say Yes for any one of those questions , No need to spent 6 months time for OCAJP exam . Because it just covers Java language basics in depth. Yo need to get Clear understanding about all exam objectives which are mentioned in OCAJP 7/8 . You didn'nt mention which exam you are taking. No OCAJP requires 6 months.
Even you are beginner  two and half months or two months time is enough. I can give you few suggestions.

1. When you complete each chapter , note down important points even the book contains summary points.

2. Do not take any test till you get clear understanding.

3. Revise the concepts multiple times.

4. Analyse each concept practically.

Hope it helps !

Hi Narayana,

Thanks for the great advice! No, I don't have any work experience programming in Java. I have been in IT for about eight years. I've created basic scripts and worked a bit with Powershell.

That's good to hear that even a beginner could get it done in two months!

I am taking the OCAJP 8 exam.

I've learned a lot already going through chapter one of the Sybex book. I read slowly, and made sure I understood concepts before moving on. I will take the chapter one review test soon.
