Hello everyone.

It has been couple of months since I've passed my OCP (1Z0-829) exam and became Java 17 Oracle Certified Professional. And 2 years before that I've earned my Oracle Certified Associate badge (see my LinkedIn profile). Now it's my time to help others to do the same.

So I've created a single Udemy course which can prepare a candidate for both OCA and OCP exams. At the time of this post, only OCA part is finished, and I expect the OCP chapters to be completed by the end of July 2023. For that reason I am giving the course at lowest possible price, untill it's completely finished.

Anyway, here is the course: Java Certification Exam Prep: OCA (1Z0-808) & OCP (1Z0-829)

Since this is a fresh new course, I am willing to give out this course for free during the next few days. All you need to do is to reply to this topic, tell me you want a free course and I will send you a link to enroll for free in the private message. I have only limited amount of free links, so I can not guarantee how long this offer will stand.

For all other questions, I am standing at your disposal.

Hello Luka,

[please do not consider this reply as a request for a free course]

I like your commitment and willingness to help Java exam students, the only concern I have -- why you put 2 very different exams in a single training?
OCA 8 is very different from OCP Java 17. What is the idea? I do not want to discourage you, maybe just consider splitting into two more focused courses?

Good luck with your plans!

MZ

Hi Mikalai, good question

My logic was to offer students one place to go to get certified in Java. Maybe someone passed his OCA long time ago and wants to start from the beginning, or maybe someone doesn't even want to take OCA but go for OCP directy. In that case one should just listen the whole course for beginning to end and everything will be there.

On the other hand, I have marked the chapters which one needs to know for OCA exam with [OCA], so those who are only focused on OCA can just listen to these chapters and ignore the rest. And then if you want to take the next step and go to OCP, you can just continue with the same course, you don't have to buy another one and you are already familiar with teaching method and style.

I agree with you that they are quite diffrent exams, but OCA is basically just a subset of OCP, so I believe every OCP course could include OCA chapters as well. The only difference here is that OCA chapters are marked as such.

To be honest, I am still not sure that this is so good an idea, but it makes sense to me I guess time will show.

Hello, thank you for your courses and your willingness to help others

I am preparing for Java 11 certification, I have to go for Java 11 because at my company we use it and the managers told me that it would be nice to have it.
If you think your courses will help me, I would love to have a link to them.

Thank you very much and good luck!

I don't see why would anyone go for Java 11, since Java 17 is the latest LST version. And for the exam, Java 11 is just part of Java 17, the only real difference is that Java 17 exam adds some cool new Java 17 features, like records and sealed classes. So yes, you can use my course to prepair for Java 11 exam, but I really think you should speak to your employers and persuade them to go for Java 17.

I'll send you the link in the PM.

Based on the same logic I don't understand why you offer (or advocate) an OCA certification course. The OCA is very old (especially the one for 8). It sounds like you are advocating that one needs to get the OCA before the OCP, which is not true. It's misleading in my opinion.

best of luck though.

That's not the same. OCA is much easier exam, it's like an introduction to Java. It's for Java 8, but only because these fundamental concepts are the same in later versions of Java. That's why there is no OCA for Java 11 or 17. OCP is the next step.

OPC Java 11 and OCP Java 17 are both on the same level - Oracle Professional Developer. And it's not like OCP Java 11 is easier, the questions are just as hard as on OCP Java 17, the only difference is few extra chapters in Java 17 exam, which are not so difficult per se. It's just a matter of time Oracle will withdraw OCP Java 11, like it did with OCP Java 8. I believe they are keeping it just for the sake of old students, in a transition period. But if you are just starting to prepare and learn for the exam, it really doesn't make any sense to go for Java 11, and not learn about cool new features of Java 17. Latest is the greatest

Speaking of which, I also have a free Udemy course on new Java 17 features, you might wanna take a look: Five Practical Must-Know Java SE 17 Features

Hi Luka,

I am exactly in that situation... I am undertaking study for 1Z0-808 and now want to move to straight to 1Z0-829.
Would love access to your course if you are still providing that.

Thanks!

Hi Luka, I just explored your linkedin profile. I too completed 1Z0-808 course at the same time when you completed. Just few weeks ago took 1Z0-809 exam but unfortunately didn't pass that exam. Now I think after taking a few days break and then to start preparing for 1z0-829 exam. I would love access to your course if you are still providing that. Thanks a lot

Why? All knowledge is still fresh in my head, I have plenty of my own notes, highlights and chunks of code which I've used for preparing the exam. This is why I've started to work on a course immediately after I've passed the exam.

Every week or two Udemy offers the courses at a significant discount.  To be able to be notified and receive the discount, you just need to subscribe to their mailing list.

Right now, I see the course priced at $17.99CAD (around $13.50USD).
