I got only 56% .

My problem was that i tried to pass the second exam right after passing the first one OCA exam(which is really easy).

I prepared for two weeks, that is definitely not enough for passing this exam! it's really tough. Next time i will take MUCH MORE prep.

I read oracle tutorial for 1z0-804, re-read summary for all K&B chapters , Enthuware 1z0-804 mock tests and Java 7 new features cookbook. I'm a mac user and we have some issues with JDK 7 so i didn't install it and tried to learn all new features of it from the books. THAT WAS DEFINITELY WRONG! There were a lot of questions about project Coin not covered in books! Next time i will write a lot of code using java 7.

Shame on me and wish me a good luck next time(i'm going to pass the exam in December)!

I would suggest trying this quiz player. It helped me pass the OCPJP 7 exam the first time.

I wish you good luck next time.

OS X 10.8 supports the standard JDK 7, by the way. I upgraded my OS mainly for that reason.

How were questions quality ? bad or good as oca ?

I'm sure time is also not sufficient to solve such rough questions.

I agree that the OCPJP 7 exam is not a cake walk. You need to read specialized books such as book by Ganesh & Sharma (available now on Amazon) or book by K&B (available in June).
