That's right, scheduling after 25 April isn't possible.
There are no best or worst path, you I assume if you passed OCA you know how to study for OCP ;)
Let's get started! I'm actually on this way too
I have appointment this saturday but I think I will not pass. I have studied with lectures by Oracle University but it was not enough.
Welcome Mohamed Labouardy, congratulations with your book!
Topics seems to be pretty useful

There are many different possibilities which can help to prepare for upcoming certification exam.
Some of them are trick questions after each chapter in Sybex Study Guides written by J. Boyarsky and S. Selikoff.
Another one is Enthuware Test Studio with different mock tests, for simulating exam similar experience.
I have used both for preparing for different exams and I would like to discuss the purpose for bigger complexity of the after-chapter questions and mock tests.
Since the authors themselves notice that their questions are harder and trickier than on the real exam, my question is:
Is there really a need for this?
I can imagine that for authors the topics are clear and they undestand the thing even deeper than students because of big experience.
But don't they think that it may be overwhelming for not-professionals? Especially for people with lower English knowledge?
I am not English native and I do really hard while trying to understand questions and answers made by Enthuware.
I feel demotivated because of that. In the real exam the questions are really much easier. So why is there are need to demotivate people without background?
Can bigger complexity help undestand the concepts deeper? Maybe. For experienced professionals. But it also can disappont newbies who may think they are not good enough to undestand this.
In my opinion, mocks should motivate people to take exam and not to demotivate. What do you think?

Thank you for the explanation, I understand the part with certification (but who will proof that and give certificates?).
But I do not understand the purpose and why is that meaningful to say that you have worked as a SE the whole life? I think that point has confused me.
So what are you and other people would like to have? To have a land? For home / garden ?  How is your idea works? Somebody has the garden and everybody can help him with planting trees?
P.S. is that really a problem to buy a land? In many places in europe you can become that nearly for free.

I read the email, this topic, kickstarter, website, saw the video, but I still don't understand what is the story about

Thank you for your feedback!
Did you prepared just with a book or also used some mock tests ?
Well why not? Pandemic time proofed that online only teching works.
Many schoolars and students (not except me) are studying online only for longer than 1 year now and I also had practice at company as a java programmer in this time and every time I needed a help I just wrote or called my colleagues via Teams.
I think it can be even more productive than in real life because you have by far fewer distraction like office etc.
Other question is that if the person isnt good in English it may be difficult for both to understand each other.

Why use Amazon if you can see the whole content of the book on manning website for free?

Sharwan Ka welcome to CodeRanch!

Of course it will help you, math is very important for both physics and graphics of games.
I guess it will help game programmers much more than programmers for business applications.

I saw it has matrices and movings which are algebra and dicrete math, but is there also some stochastic or especially proofs (and how to understand them) ?

Hello there!
I have 2 questions: one about a book and the second one about similar, but different topic.

1. Can this book help me in undestand better university math for computer scientists ?

2. Is there also something similar (for programmers) but for English? I mean, it's hard for me to understand even Java Course hosted by Oracle University or Jeanne's books.

P.S. maybe this question isn't in the right forum, but also would like to read the book "Math for programmers", that's why I'm posting here.
