Hello uma, welcome to the Ranch!

I see that you posted this a few weeks ago and I was curious as to how your studies are going? Still planning to take the exam at the end of April?

What study material are you using? Do you thing they are a good resource?

Best of Luck!

I am at the beginning of my studies. I decided after much mental debate to use Mala Gupta's Certification Guide in Manning Press. I had originally planned to use the Finegan/Liguori Study Guide, but because of problems I outlined in another thread in this forum, I decided it would not be wise to get two copies of the same book. So I'm going with the Gupta book. I wanted to say that I was just looking at the Introductory stuff and it compares the previous exam to the OCAJP 7 is more difficult than the previous. (They raised the bar.) I think that's a good thing for us developers. It will help us and the employer too. For myself, I see it being an immerse exercise in my study.
