Hi all,

I recently completed graduate school in Computer Information Systems. It was geared heavily towards software engineering. Multiple classes on Java and C#. This is a very broad question I realize.. but im going to float it out there anyways. Would it be possible, with extensive studying, to prepare for and take the Oracle Java associates exam within a few months? Has anyone done such a thing before? Just curious to hear some thoughts / feedback.

Thanks.

Welcome to the Ranch.

The OCAJP7 (1Z0-803) is indeed for beginners and prerequisite for OCPJP7.

Given you have a CS background, 3-4 months of serious studying & coding should be suffice. The coding will help you understand the concepts as you go along.

Check out the exam objectives first

Hi. i also preparing now. If you have experienced in java, you can try pass mock test and find how much subject you need to study.
Time for reading for example OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I Certification Guide is 1-2 month (for me, i have regular work).
so you can try read some study book and mock test and make decision study more or go to exam.
recommend enthuware test because it have robust question

Hi R.S. Deadhat,

First of all, a warm welcome to the CodeRanch!

That's possible without any doubt. Of course it would possibly require some more effort than someone who is a java programmer/developer because he has already hands-on experience every day. And you learn understanding the concepts of a language only by doing and creating little code snippets, not just by reading a text book (or study guide). So from that point of view: learning java is just like learning how to drive a car.

R.S. Deadhat wrote:Has anyone done such a thing before?

Of course! Currently there are a few ranchers present in this forum who are preparing for the OCAJP7 exam with limited java experience (because they want to switch from e.g. infrastructure to development). You are definitely in the right place. This forum is very active and this great community (where you now a member of) will definitely help you to answer your questions, clear your doubts and encourage you to become OCAJP7 certified. Good luck!

Hope it helps!
Kind reards,
Roel

If you start with decent knowledge of OOP it should take between 2 and 3 months if you put 3+ hours a day i think . I for example started with no programming knowledge about 4.5 months ago and hope to finish in less then a month .
