Hello everyone,
I want to go for spring core certification but I couldn't find any good reference. I have searched and googled about it and what I came to know is about the book spring in action 4th ed. But I also went on and came to know that many people have used this book for this certification but didn't do well on the exam.

So if anyone knows some good reference for spring core certification that I should use for the exam please tell me.

I wrote this for the Spring 3 cert. While some parts would have changed for later versions of Spring, some havve stayed the same (like dependency injection) so I think it is worth a look.

Thanks for the guidelines Jeanne
And one more thing after reading your book of OCAJP while preparing for OCA I truly became fan of you and Scott. I only hope that in future I get the chance to meet and thank you personally (for that I really have to keep studying hard and have to travel a long journey). Thank you for writing such an awesome book, and please write more books like these


And for spring I came to know new book named "pivotal certified professional spring developer exam a study guide which cover spring 4.x by apress" i will try this book along with your study guide and tips(it have lot of imp information).
Thanks a lot

Oh cool. I didn't realize there was a book. That's likely to be far better than my materials for the Spring cert. (which are for an older version of Spring and only exist because there were no other materials at that time)

There is now a 5th edition of Spring 5 In Action, for Spring 5.

Please note that the list of topics in the exam is in Pivotal website.  More than half of the book is not part of the exam.  For deeper, more complete knowledge to prepare for the exam, you can refer to the Spring Reference, on the related topics.

My practice tests are based on the Pivotal list of topics.
They are at itestjava.com (Spring 5, 4.3, 4.2), and  https://www.udemy.com/user/jr-angeles-jesus-calimlim/ (Spring 4.3, 4.2).

Typo above.  Should be 'Spring In Action' book.

By the way, I believe there is also an available book or preparation course on Spring 5 certification now.  Try Udemy or amazon.

I did the course from Pivotal (which I recommend).  Used the certification guide as a reference to guide my studies, together with one of the best sources of information the spring docs from Pivotal.  
The issue is that the exam covered a lot of technologies that are not always used in standard application development.  
I've not read the core spring developer book but have read the enterprise certification book from the same publisher and found it a good source of information.
