Im studying for OCP using Sybex books. I just wondering how's the difficulty of the review questions at the end of chapter compare to Enthuware mock tests and the real exam.
I have done review question (1st time) in the book quiet well compared to the OCA book (which were challenging, really hard, but good for studying).

The explanation is silly though. You can release locks temporarily in synchronized blocks as well, by calling Object.wait(). It's a confusing text.

I'm sure you read our rant in the chapter about what Scott and I think about the database topic coverage on the exam.
That said, you do not have to know the Oracle driver syntax on the exam. We used Oracle as the name in the example for the sake of picking something. What you do need to know is the simplified database url syntax. Knowing jdbc comes first and that a database name needs to be included is not memorizing the syntax. A and B don't have a database name at all.
