Hi everyone,

im about to start the road on studying for Architect certification. im a little confuse about this exam and the preparation roadmap.

i have a few questions that maybe some one could help me out with

1. Do i have to purchase the course to start the certification. in the oracle┬┤s page the roadmap talks about presenting on of the proposed courses.

2. the new exam code 1Z0-864 stands for 310-051 or 310-052 older codes ? just to to know which documentation could help me out

3. any documentation material recommended ? books, tests, prep simulators

4. where to start tips.

thanks in advance

regards,
Juan

Hi Kumar thanks for your Help.

just to clarify, the OCMJEA exam is homologous with the old Sun SCEA ?

and the literature is applicable ?

Err... Your English is better than mine, but for example, I took SCEA part I in 2010 and OCMJEA part II and III in 2012, and there was no problem, though I did have to take a hands-on course. My assignment was graded in three weeks (and I passed :-) ).

The content of the exam is the same, so yes, the same books apply.

Cheers-
