Hi all,
Im a programmer with little Java knowledge and would like to take the entry level Java certification in May (About 3 months prep time), I was wondering wether to go for OCAJP7 or 8. Seeing that 8 is just new on the scene and there aren't many tests and guides available yet. The primary objective being able to finish certification with a good score on my first attempt.

Thanks,
Gaurav

Hi Gaurav,

First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

Which one is the best one all depends on your plans in near future. If you want to become OCPJP certified immediately after passing OCAJP, you should definitely opt for OCAJP7. Otherwise OCAJP8 will be the best choice. It's these days a very popular question: you'll find answers/suggestions here and here and here

Also note, as you already mentioned: OCAJP8 is released very recently, so there are just very few study guides and other resources available. For example, currently Enthuware doesn't have mock exams for OCAJP8 yet.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel
