Hi Guys,

This is my first post here actually.
I am so happy to share with you all that I took the OCP Java SE 7 exam today and passed with 88% .
I prepared the exam for about 3 month after work (when I get a break from watching my new born:) )  
I passed my OCA last year about same time .

Just want to share few things about my preparation :
Books :
OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide (Exams 1Z0-803 & 1Z0-804) (Certification Press)
https://www.amazon.com/Programmer-Study-1Z0-803-1Z0-804-Certification/dp/0071772006
OCP Java SE 7 Programmer II Certification Guide: Prepare for the 1ZO-804 exam 1st Edition
by Mala Gupta  (Author)

Exam software I used and my opinion :
The exam software that came with the book of Oracle Press    : Hard and good questions from Oracle
Enthuware Java SE7  :  tons of questions to practice which I used a lot and hey it's only 10 bucks :)
Kaplan selftest Software :  overpriced for the value , returned.
My Exam Cloud : use it only which you are studying , not close to real exam complexity

Passing exam getting certification is of course the best result,
However , What I really enjoyed was the process of getting ready for exam, learning all the details in much deeper sense, It was such a pleasure (of course painful sometimes) along the way learning the language I have passion about even though my job does not require me to do so.
I will come back next year with my JAVA 8 score  : )

I wish you all success ,I wish you all pass the exam, and earn the certification you deserve for your hard work.

Have a great end of the year!

Thanks for the advice.  If you could post your average enthuware exam results I'd appreciate that.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
