I am preparing for the OCA Java se 7 exam.I want to know if mala gupta book and mock tests from whizlabs are enough to pass the exam with a good score?? Also in some of the
tests in whizlabs i found some questions on Wrapper classes and other topics such as inner classes and enums which are not written in the exam objectives...should i study those topics or study only the topics listed in exam objectives?? My last question is can anyone tell me the difficulty level of the oca exam..are they difficult or easier than the mock tests??

I passed the oca and there were no question outside the material mentioned here http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/extra/certification/javase-7-programmer1.html .
In some mock exams there could be various topics like enum, inner classes, etc. but those objectives are listed for Programmer-II exam.
Regarding difficult level, i haven't use Whizlab so can't comment but i used Enthuware and if you are interested then here is the link http://www.coderanch.com/t/638246/sr/certification/OCA-Java-Passed .

And one last thing code, code and code....

Hi Anshdeep Singh,

A warm welcome to the CodeRanch!

That should be enough to pass the exam. If you are still in doubt you can purchase the Enthuware mock exams. These exams are great value for money.

Just study the exam objectives. Enums, wrapper classes & inner classes are definitely not on the OCAJP7 exam! A little note about the wrapper classes: although they are not in the exam objectives, some people already mentioned they got a question with a wrapper class in it, but the question didn't require knowledge about wrapper classes to answer the question correctly.

Have a look here. This thread contains a bunch of user experiences about the exam.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

No, certainly not! Even OCPJP6 is still alive and kicking, so OCAJP7 is still a good choice. You can find a similar discussion here.
