Hi folks,

Yesterday I've passed in 1z0-807 exam, I've scored 80%. Since there's no PearsonVue testing center in my city, I had to travel 24 hours in a roundtrip travel to take this certification. So, I'm completely exhausted today. 50% of the test to me was scenario based questions.

Study Method
Bambara`s book: Well, Bambara`s book IS NOT SUFFICIENT if you are studying to this certification. 75% (being optimistic) of the questions are covered in the entire book, but there're a lot of questions that their content are not mentioned in this book. This was my main study source. It's easy to read, and I've probably passed through the entire content 4 or 5 times. Something like 25 hours studying only this book.

JEE Tutorial was not effective for me. There're a lot of points hidden in this documentation. So, I've used this only two or three hours.

JSR Specs: I've studied some JSR Specs like EJB 3, CDI (299), JBI (312), JSF (314), Servlet 3.0 (315). A lot of exhaustive material, but there's good chapters in each of this specs. So, I recommend it in the end of your training. I've spend something like 10 hours there.

Whizlabs: Whizlabs for this certification is a really piece of crap. Lot of questions wrongly answered, bad written questions, and nothing relevant to the certification Objective. Don't buy it guys, it's really bad. I've spend 40 hours there.

EPractize Labs: Really good material, there're a lot of good questions and most of them answer correctly (with excepts). So, it's a really precious material for this certification. Spend 60 hours there.

In the end, I've study 138 hours for this certification. If I would remake that certification to take 100%, what I would like do:

Study only the Bambara's book and Cade/ Sheil material (40 hours at maximum)
Exercising with EPractize (80 hours)
Review Specs (20 hours)
- Didn't buy Whizlabs (in fact I'll never do it again).

Special thanks to: Bora Seven, the author of the topic that I've chose for using as a study method, because the other guys tells you to read 1000 books, K. Tsang, which always helped everyone here with our questions, and Fernando Franzini because I've used his material compilation in two hours before the exam.

So, now I'm free to follow my path to the 865 now. Yeah man. I'll definitely get into it tomorrow. Today is a celebrating day.

Oracle reports tells that I've answered wrong questions in this fields:
Classify security threats to an enterprise application select measures an architect can propose to mitigate them.
Identify a design pattern, using a description of its features, from the following: Facade, Strategy, Observer, Composite, and Abstract Factory.
Identify and detail the technologies used to integrate business components with external resources, including JMS and JCA.
Identify how a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) facilitates system integration and best practices.
Identify how the Separation of Concerns principle applies to the component model of a Java EE application; including client, the web and business component containers, and the integration and resource layers.
Identify the benefits and drawbacks of using a browser to access asynchronous, lightweight processes on the server.
Identify the correct interpretation of Separation of Concerns as it applies to the Java EE service layers, including component APIs, run-time containers, the operating system, and hardware resources.
Identify the security technologies that apply to an application’s code, messaging and transport layers
Select appropriate locations to implement Java EE security technologies or features in a UML component and deployment diagram.
Select the appropriate use of JPA and JPQL in a given scenario.

Thanks folks!

Thank you and thank you for your dispose in helping people at this forum! There were no questions on my test about old core j2ee patterns.

Hi Prachij,

Thank you! Yes, you need to do a listed course to get OCMJEA certificate. But you can do it after all the exams (I'll do the cheaper course in the end of Part II & III)

Best!

Hi Prachij,

You can get EPractize Labs from their website (http://www.epractizelabs.com/certification/oracle/ocmjea-6/mockexam.html ). It`s 40 dollars.

I've made a resume in http://ocmjea6.webflow.io. I can't share the mock questions because they're property of EPractize Labs.

Best,

Sergio.
