For OCA exam, with your help, I have called this correspondence:


CHAMPTER 1 - OBJECTIVE 1.0
CHAMPTER 2 - OBJECTIVES 6.0, 7.0
CHAMPTER 3 - OBJECTIVE 2.0
CHAMPTER 4 - OBJECTIVE 3.0
CHAMPTER 5 - OBJECTIVES 2.0, 4.0
CHAMPTER 6 - OBJECITVES 3.0, 5.0, 8.0



I did it so I know, after the study of each chapter, which were the exercise of the cd to do.

Now I would like to do the same thing for the OCP exam and so I try to make a list:


CHAPTER 7 - OBJECTIVE 6.0
CHAPTER 8 - OBJECTIVES 5.0, 12.0
CHAPTER 9 - OBJECTIVES 7.0, 8.0
CHAPTER 10 - OBJECTIVES 1.0, 2.0, 3.0
CHAPTER 11 - OBJECTIVE 4.0
CHAPTER 12 - OBJECTIVE ?
CHAPTER 13 - OBJECTIVE 10.0
CHAPTER 14 - OBJECTIVE 11.0
CHAPTER 15 - OBJECTIVE 9.0



Do you tell me if they are correct these correspondences? I can not find a match with chapter 12 (Inner Class).




P.S. for simplicity I list the titles of the chapters and objectives.


CHAPTERS
- chapter 7: Assertions and Java 7 Exceptions
- chapter 8: String Processing, Data Formatting, Resource Bundles
- chapter 9: I/O and NIO
- chapter 10: Advanced OO and Design Patterns
- chapter 11: Generics and Collections
- chapter 12: Inner Class
- chapter 13: Threads
- chapter 14: Concurrency
- chapter 15: JDBC




OBJECTIVES ON CD
- 1.0: Java Class Design
- 2.0: Advanced Class Design
- 3.0: Object-Oriented Design Principles
- 4.0: Generics and Collections
- 5.0: String Processing
- 6.0: Exceptions and Assertions
- 7.0: Java I/O Fundamentals
- 8.0: Java File I/O (NIO.2)
- 9.0: Building Database Applications with JDBC
- 10.0: Threads
- 11.0: Concurrency
- 12.0: Localization

You did a great job! I have exactly the same mapping between chapters and objectives.

With regard to the inner classes: there is no seperate objective on the CD, because you may expect to encounter inner classes in questions on every objective. Exactly the same as on the actual exam: a question about string processing can easily use an (anonymous) inner class. Questions on threading and concurrency could rely heavily on inner classes.

The exam objectives on the CD match with the official OCP 7 exam topics. If you have a look, you'll find inner classes (also known as nested classes) mentioned under exam objective 2.0 (Advanced Class Design). So chapter 12 maps with OBJECTIVE 2.0.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel
