Nice that you bought Enthuware. Practice with it. Read Pro JPA 2 by Mike Keith and Merrick Schincariol. Go through JPA specs. that's important. Reading through past experiences of successful candidates helped me a bit.

JPA specs and the book should do for you. and Practice with Enthuware.
Wilkie Dzieki! ..... Big Thanks! ....Thanks a lot, guys... your help is very much appreciated.

I am attempting to clear 1Z0-898 Java Persistence API exam sometime in near future. and i haven't given OCPJBCD exam yet. Is it mandatory to give OCPJBCD before giving JPA exam? What's the difference? i will be attemption OCPJBCD after i clear JPA exam though afterwards.

I haven't been through the history of the forum checking if this has been answered before. So if anybody can point me the links, will appreciate it.

Saw a lot of critic(-ive) reviews of the book in the amazon link given. Will appreciate some reviews about the book from ranchers in the forum.
I don't think the voucher are transferrable any more. These prometric people will book the voucher against the Unique ID proof and address proof. If you don't produce those document, you are not allowed to take the exam. So Stop looking for the voucher
Congrats on your success. And also thanks for providing such elaborate info. Enjoy! Have a blast!!
