Hello All,

I gave my OCAJP 7 today morning and got 78% . I have been a JAVA/J2EE developer for the past 10 years and I have planning to give this certification for a (way too) long time. I thought I knew everything in Java being SCJP5 vertified and from my work experience  but I was proved wrong very early in my preparation. IDEs have spoiled me :-(
OCA/OCP Java SE7 Programmer I & II Guide by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates helped me a lot to go back to my basics and understand the concepts thoroughly.
Enthuware mock exams made me realize whatever I knew already was not enough as I was falling for the traps in the questions. I took all the tests within a week and by the time I took the final day test I had passed only one test among it. But I made sure I spent more time in reviewing the answers with the explanations provided.

I should say the final exams was not as easy as I expected it to be but hey Enthuware had prepared me already on where the pitfalls would be. For me the exam timing was just adequate for 80 questions. I could review only the questions I had marked. I wanted to go through the entire set of questions but ran out of time.

Finally thanks to each and everyone of you in this forum, team Enthuware, Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates for the awesome book.
