Hello everyone,

I am studying for the OCA examination. Having completed the book once, I am still failing at the practice exam questions. These are mainly due to certain exceptions to rules, or failing when multiple answers are possible. I was wondering if anyone has made a summary of the book that I could read, before needing to read the book for the second time. It would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the Ranch
I am not convinced a summary of the book will help you in your present situation. It may be possible to read sample pages on the publisher's or a booksellers's websites, but I suspect you will actually need the whole book. The sample pages will allow you to see whether you like this book, or whether you should consider a different book.

I think Daniel has the book and wants to see if he can save time by not reading it again.

I would say no. Read it again, write lots of cod, take notes, etc.

Hi guys. Thank you for the tips. I have passed the OCA exam today. What I did was I read the book once more, and while doing that I summarized the book which helped me in letting the knowledge sink in a bit better. I also did 4 enthuware exams as a final preperation together with the bonus exams on sybex.
