Does anybody have any great examples of using GitHub as they study for Java certifications? I keep a notebook, but I think a more formal record, one that might be useful to others (if I pass) might be more fun, more productive, and allow for a better learning environment. Also, something a future employer could see. Any links would be appreciated. Right now just thinking of moving though each topic and documenting thoughts, questions, examples, etc. I have a deadline, bought my test, been studying but need to take a deeper plunge and immerse myself, set aside my distractions. (I write and it's hard to put that aside for a few months as it calms the creative voices in my head.)

Thanks, I have Jeanne and Scott's book. Also Hanumant's book, and just purchased the Java 11 Enthuware tests, but haven't taken one yet. I think I can do this.

Did you notice that Mala Gupta's Java11 cert book is Manning's book of the day offer today?
Why do you need to keep your notes on GitHub? If on GitHub, I would use a private repository. Can you create a local repository? Does that process differ from putting anything else onto GitHub?

Hmmmm... I have been thinking about it and wonder if keeping formal notes will just complicate things, make the process longer. I already don't have much time in a day. Trying to be on top of things, but there are lots of things and one more hard task might be too much. I also agree, this is more personal... Hmmmmm.

I think that making formal notes may well help with your revision.

You're idea is not new 8) I have seen couple of notes (so far Java 8 exams related) , google tells me these (but here could be more):

https://github.com/jjaros/java-oca-ocp-study
https://github.com/manoharreddyporeddy/programming-language-notes/tree/master/oracle-java-certifications

The downside -- you cannot make private repo on github (for free), but seems this is not your goal.

I like the .md markdown format when you need quickly to create something nice-looking, as well you can host the sample test classes in the same place.

Good luck on the test !
