Hello,

I am currently studying for taking the exam for OCAJ 8 certification. I would like to ask you guys if there is any valuable video training available anywhere for my goal.

Thank you!

Hi Alex Ca,

First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

In the OcajpFaq (besides other very useful information) and this thread you'll find an overview of all available resources (study guides, mock exams, video courses,...) to thorougly prepare yourself for the certification exam. And on the OcajpWallOfFame you'll find plenty of (links to) experiences from other ranchers (including resources they have used). So it can be useful to determine which resources are useful (and which are not).

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

Hi Alex,

First I'd say yes, there is valuable video training: the one I'd recommend would be javacjava.com : daniel ross (the author) also has a good youtube channel, but his website has a certification section, or one at least geared towards it: here.. Very thorough and well explained.

I personally also like Derek Banas, TheNewBoston and Cave of Programming on youtube, all have great java content that I would really recommend - but perhaps not for certification. None of them have the same focus/depth as Daniel's site, although I do really rate Cave of Programming's Swing tutorials (caveofprogramming.com has the full series) if you ever get into that.

Which I guess leads me to my last point - I don't think any video tutorials can match a study guide and the enthuware mocks. Javacjava is good, but I would only use it for clarifying subjects that you are unsure of, or as a primer.

Hope that helps,

Nick
