It's currently the most used Java version. I am happy to see even though Java 8 has been released and books like this publishing for hungry-for-knowledge people like us. Java 7 has long way to go. OCP is what measured a Java programmer. So, having a perfect exam guide will help us to get through the exam and score high marks. Good luck with your promotion.
I want to say "Thank you!" for *unobtrusive* inspiration! I had a great experience and pleasure to read your previous Programmer I Certification Guide! Information was provided in a correct way and detailed enough to pass the exam with 98% score.
It's been 2 years ago. After I passed the certification I had a goal to complete the next step. I ordered the book of another author (yours, obviously, was not published by the time), then I had been struggling with errors and going back and forth with the author.
Finally, I haven't completed that path and that book is still gathering dust. The good news, I got from JavaRanch, reminded me about such uncompleted goal. As far as I'm aware of the quality of your work, I'm happy to see you keep going and publishing more material for Java Developers.
Thank you for such kind of inspiration in certification field!
Thanks for your very kind words, Sergey. I am glad to learn that you liked my OCA book and scored very well on your exam! I'm proud of you! Thank you for the appreciation-Positive Words like these keep me motivated! Good Luck for the OCP exam.
Thanks, Enrique. I hope it helps you with your exam preparation. Good Luck to you too!
