This is a day, when I can announce that yesterday I passed 1Z0-803 exam with 75% score and achieved OCAJP7 Certificate! Maybe it is not that good result, but... A few years ago I failed SCJP6 by 1 (one!) percent point. Then I decided to give up...
But all this time I feel that java is important for me. I could call it my hobby. I haven't worked in java (but 10 years in IT and programing anyway). I come back this year. Studying for last three months very hard.
I used OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I Certification Guide by Mala Gupta, Enthuware and also this forum, which was very helpful to understand some nuances.
For me the exam was a little bit easier than the enthuware tests, so I don't understand how did I get worse result (stress?), but at the and of the day I did it! Now I can start to develop my java skills. I would like to work as a programmer first. Any helpful suggestions what should I do next?
To everybody, who is preparing to the exam. Don't give up! You can do this! If you feel java is your thing, then there is nothing what could stop you! ;)
All the best and thank you!
