After passing all the OCMJEA exams I plan to do the mandatory course.
I could not find any unambiguous information on whether it is possible/allowed to take an exam without its prerequisite.
I want to take the "Java EE 7: New Features" course (because of its friendly price), but it has the prerequisite of "Java SE 7 Programming" course, which I have not attended.
Has anyone done it without its mandatory prerequisite? Is it possible? Do they accept it as the certificate requirement if I don't take the prereq?

Gabor,
You can take the course without the "pre-requisite." It meets the cert requirement without the "pre-requisite."

I use quotes around "pre-requisite" because Oracle doesn't use it in the same way as a school does. In a school, it typically means you need to have taken that course. In Oracle's world, it means that you need to have the pre-req KNOWLEDGE covered in that class. So presuming you feel comfortable writing code, you are good to go for the Java EE class. They are trying to avoid people showing up in the class and saying "what does public mean."
