Why do you want minimum time to prepare?

Prabh,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

Can you tell us about what you know so far? If you have never seen Java, the advice will be different than if you have been using it for two years. I'm guessing you fall somewhere in between.

Given that you are looking for a job, you have lots of time to study which will shorten the # days to prepare. (vs someone with a full time job.)

It is good you have a book. This will focus you on what you need to study more and solidify details of what you do know. It also has a mock exam in the back. I also recommend you take some of the free online exams (see this forum's FAQ for links) to get more practice answering questions. This gets you familiar with looking for errors in code.


K&B 6 covers almost everything you need to know. (Plus much more, but you can skip those parts.) It does not cover the new Java 7 syntax. There isn't much on teh OCA, but do read up on using underscores in numeric literals.

What you also could/should do, is having a look at the OcajpFaq (contains a bunch of interesting links). Also valuable is having a look at the OcajpWallOfFame: ranchers who passed the certification add their name to the wall, sometimes with a (link to) story about their experiences preparing for the exam. These experiences contain also very valuable information about study guides, online mock exams, possible pitfalls,...

I am also a true advocate of not rushing your preparation to get the certification as soon as possible. So I'll add this thread here too. In the end the certification is just a piece of paper nothing more, but if you truely take your time to prepare without any deadline, you'll get much more out of this certification than that piece of paper. You'll become a better programmer/developer, good/excellent understanding of the java language and all its subtleties,...

Good luck!
