Hey guys I'm still quite new to Java and in the workplace have only been really working on small bug fixs and small parts of code. So I'm not that experienced with java. Practically my work a few years ago said they would pay for me to go on to do the OCA Java Certification exam, I then moved in to a different area of the business and was working within SAP. I am now back in a more java based role but still not compitent with java. I was wondering how hard is the exam, what kind of knowledge is needed and if theres any good resources to use for practising the exam. Also if i get this qualification where would it stand me with future jobs etc. Obviously I know most places care more about experience than exams but just wondered what kind of level isit.

The OCAJP7 exam is for beginners covering the fundamental Java syntax and OO concepts.

OCA Java 7 Programmer 1 exam objectives

Currently the best study guide for OCAJP7 should be the one by Mala Gupta here.

How useful is getting the cert is different for everyone. Some people take it for personal goal, other maybe company requires it. Whatever the purpose, preparing for such certification will enable you to learn the ins and outs of the Java programming language, especially if you continue to the OCPJP cert.

If you also consider taking the OCPJP7 certification exam, you might consider K&B7 which was released very recently (October 13, 2014).
