I just passed "1Z0-851 Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 6 Programmer" exam with 78%,

paid by the German labour office, after 3 month of full-time 40h/w training paid by the German labour office.

Reasoning:
1. The paid training of the German labour office is limited to 6 month.
2. I will continue with remaining 3 month by a paid training for "1Z0-899 Oracle Certified Expert, Java EE 6 Web Component Developer", and will hopefully pass this too.
3, A Java7 Professional certification would require a to participate in a 6 month course training, while there is currently no such offer for Java 8 Professional. There would have been no time to pass another certification... especially no training and graduation in practical J2EE, like with my web-component training.

Rolf,
Congrats! I have two book recommendations for you:

  • Java 7 new Features Cookbook
  • Java 8 for the Really Impatient


  • Think of these two books as a "diff" between what your course covered and what people are doing in current apps.
