I see in Oracle's website, that 1Z0-850 Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 5/SE 6 is still available on exams.

Oracle 1Z0-850

Some questions related to this exam if someone knows:
(A) Is still actually available, does anyone tried recently?
(B) What is the validity/expiration time?
(C) Any related materials to study, for e.g. enthuware does not have a related exam in their test engine?

This v5/6 associate exam is not a programmer per se but more manager level. This exam is different from the OCAJP7 or 8 exam which is intended for programmers

Depending your purpose and career development, this exam is somewhat obsolete like the OCPJP6 when there is v7 and v8.

Hi Salvi,

Indeed as per previous comments this exam focuses on more theoritical aspects of technologies rather than programming skills. In my opinion this should be retained as to proof of high level knowledge around J2EE,J2SE,J2ME etc.

There is material that cover exam objectives.

Books:
ExamScam : SCJA Sun Certified Java Associate Certification Guide for Exam CX-310-019
SCJA Sun Certified Java Associate Study Guide (Exam CX-310-019) (Certification Press)
Where CX-310-019 is the former SUN certification current 1Z0-850 of Oracle

Practice Tests:
Enthuware has an obsolete one which includes 4 practice tests, however you need to mail them as it is not shown in the products webpage ( The product is called: JAss+ V1 For SCJA 1.0 (CX-310-019)  )

BR,
George.
