Question for Paul and Joseph: About your book prerequisite?
posted 2 years ago
Hello Paul and Joseph,
Q1: Since the OCMJEA the exam require you to take an Oracle instructor led course in order to take the exams & not requiring any further java certification, are there any prerequisite or recommendation before reading your book? There are a lot of designers and architects (or wannabes) who don't know anything on J2EE while putting architectural constraints on the solutions without some sound explanations. It would be great to use this book as a starter while passing the exam at the same time
Q2: Earlier you (Paul) post about your book covering all the exam objectives, which I find very amazing. While subjects on OOAD, design patterns and security are always tough for a seasoned developer. Oracle exam objectives mentions these books:
Core J2EE Patterns: Best Practices and Design Strategies (2nd Edition)
Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software (GoF)
Are these books needed as supplement for your book?
Q3: Any further preparation recommendations? The toughest part is the essay part I think.
