Hi Meenakshi -

The choice depends on your career path. If you wish to restart working as a programmer, you might want to upgrade your programmer's certification to a newer version. It should help you to rework on your programming skills. Or you might start working with sample projects.

Thanks.

With much respect,
Mala

Hi Meenakshi -

Don't confuse learning with certification. You can learn using multiple channels or resources. Certification is used to calibrate it.

This book includes coverage of all exam topics you should know to write OCP Java SE 7 Programmer II Certification.

With much respect,
Mala

Yes i agree with you.

For me personally writing certifications give me lot of energy, Recently got certified as PMP,It will keep you grounded ,Only question is should i go for 7 or Java 8 certification that comes out with all this functional programming additions?
Thank you all for your valid inputs Mala.
