This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
In the Certification Path there are 5 steps:
STEP 1 – COMPLETE TRAINING
STEP 2 – PASS THIS EXAM
STEP 3 – COMPLETE THIS ASSIGNMENT
STEP 4 – COMPLETE THIS ESSAY
STEP 5 - COMPLETE THIS FORM (Complete the Course Submission Form)
What is the step 5 "Course Submission Form" ? Is it a test ?
No, not a test. Oracle now requires you take a mandatory course from them to get the architect certification. You can take it at any time in the process. This form lets you enter which class you took and presumably the date/location so they can cross check before granting your cert.
