This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP forum. We're giving away four copies of Programmer's Guide to Java SE 8 Oracle Certified Associate (OCA) and have Khalid A Mughal & Rolf W Rasmussen on-line! See this thread for details.
If you have taken an oracle certification that has a class as a pre-req, can you thread here when Oracle checks you have taken the hands on course? In particular is it that you get an exam registration code after taking the class or do they enforce on granting the cert?
