For example, when dealing with files there are tons of API Files could use.
Do we have an official JavaDoc to refer during the ocpjpt, or we have to memorize everything in our brain?

Jen,
No, you are not allowed to use the JavaDoc (or any other reference material.)  Anything you need to know needs to be in your head.

If you dont' already have a study guide, I recommend buying one. That distills the information you need to learn. Granted it is still a lot. But at least you won't waste time and mental space on APIs known not to be on the exam.

Hi Jen,

What Jeanne says is true. It is a lot. I am also wondering if I will ever be able to get that knowledge into my head.

I am currently preparing for the OCP exam using this OCP study guide, which I highly recommend. It clearly mentions what one must know as per the exam objectives and also gives plenty of context, example code snippets and explanations.

Write lots of code using the classes/methods likely to come up fo the test. Whenever you use a method, read its documentation.
 
Good heavens! What have you done! Here, try to fix it with this tiny ad:
Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
