Hey guys, sat the Java SE 7 Programmer 1 exam today and passed with 93%
I finished the exam with 10min left which I used to review 3 questions I'd 'marked'.
To prepare I used the K&B book. Having read it a while ago I reread only the chapters suggested by Bert Bates https://coderanch.com/t/587227/ocaja/certification/Java-OCA
I then reviewed the relevant two minute drills a few times and made small programs to clear any of the points I wasn't sure on.
Instead of doing the practice exams in the book I also used the Enthuware practice exams. I did all five Standard tests over until I got a mark over 90%.
Hope this info helps.
