Just curious, are you really interested in the old associate exam? Because this exam is primarily for project managers, business analyst, and such who need some Java background. It is not for would-be programmer.
I want to continue my training and improve my CV. Mi idea is certificate these ones 1Z0-803 and 1Z0-804. so i can go for the Oracle Certified Master, Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect. Do you think it has no value?
