Hi guys,

I had my exam this morning and passed it (81%) so I wanted to share my experiences with all (new) coderanchers.

This was my 2nd attempt (at the 1st I scored 53% in February) and I changed some things for the preparation. For the 1st attempt I prepared myself using the "Kaplan Self-Test" and Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 7 Programmer Study Guide - Richard M. Reese, but it definitely wasn't enough. The "Kaplan Self-Test" was quite "nice", but they are not the ideal for the preparation (in my opinion), because the questions are for sure not as tough as they are at the real exam. I definitely underestimated it.

For the 2nd attempt I used the Enthuware Exam Questions in combination with OCA Java SE7 (Mala Gupta's book) and this was, by far, the best decision I've made.
And of course practicing lots of code snippets in Eclipse.

Conclusion: Enthuware Exam Questions + Mala Gupta's book (OCA SE7 Guide) + writing lots of code snippets.

Next step -> OCJ Professional Level ;)

Kind regards
