Hello,

Just wanted to share my story here as there are little to nothing regarding Spring Certification journeys. Anyway, I've took the exam today and scored 86%.


It was both hard and easy. There were questions which were pretty straightforward and some, where you really had to think about.
I've took it remotely and it was quote pleasant. If you prepare and answer all questions in their Certification Guide, you're good to go. For me, it took more or less 5 months to prepare, read through several materials and understand the concepts. I've summarized them and shared in my github repo.
Also, I've used ITestJava mock exams. I think they are a little outdated as there are questions regarding xml configuration. But the price was reasonable and despite xml questions, its good.

If you have any questions, except certification questions themselves, shoot and I will try to answer.

Congratulations!
I'm a newbie in Spring Framework, started to work from the book named Spring in action 5th ed. but it looked so hard. Topics are passed like bullets of machine gun and I did not understand much. Because the book starts from Spring Boot. So, I made a decision to buy udemy courses. I bought 4 or 5 courses from best selling ones and started to study. It's going very well now.

My ordered books are :

Spring in action 5th ed.
Pro Spring 5
Pivotal Certified Professional Spring Developer Exam : A Study Guide

What do you advice me to specify my study path for the certification?

Thanks a lot

Hi Robotas,
Congratulations. I am working on this spring 5 exam too.

For Bora,
I first quickly went through a book called Getting started with Spring Framework: cover Spring 5 4th edition. But this book has too much technical information and less theories.
But this book is a very good start.

I am reading Spring in Action 5th edition now.  But this edition covers a lot less Spring core concepts. I just ordered Spring in Action 4th edition to learn more about Spring Core and AOP.  
Spring in Action explains everything well.

I am also talking the Spring Frame guru course from Udemy now.

Also, Mr. Ivan Krizan will complete his study guide and you can buy it at https://leanpub.com/corespring5certificationindetail.

Thanks Himai, I ordered "Spring Framework: cover Spring 5 4th edition" yesterday.

What about the exam period, It is online exam. So, Is there anybody to see you from webcam while answering the questions? or  Is it an ordinary online exam like CCA exams?

Hi, Bora.
What is the "exam period" you are refering to? I am still looking for some official mock exams for this Spring framework exam.
By the way, I think you should also read Spring in Action 4th edition's core spring framework. I heard Spring framework's core does not change much from Spring 4 to Spring 5.
You may also  need to search for more information about Spring unit test.

I highly recommended Getting Started with Spring Framework 4th edition. It is a very good starting point.

No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better. This time, do it with this tiny ad:
