Hello
i'am using SCJP 6 (K&B) - Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates.
i have studied chapters 1-5 plus the sections on ArrayList, String, StringBuilder, hashCode(), and equals().
Are these only the topic that should be studied from this book(Scjp6 K&B)?

Thank you in advance
Hello i'am very new to javaranch,i'am planing to write OCA 7 in May.
I'am reading SCJP 6 (K&B) - Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates.
Does chapters 1-5 plus the sections on ArrayList, String, StringBuilder, hashCode(), and equals() covers all the objectives of OCA 7?
please do tell if i have to go through any other topic's?


Thanks in advance..

If you're pursuing the OCP for Java 7 certification, and if you're not already certified, you now have to pass your OCA exam before you can attempt the OCP exam.

If you're studying for the OCA, our book (K&B 6), should give you pretty good coverage. If you study the following chapters from K&B 6 you should be in pretty good shape for the OCA:

chaps: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5
chap 6 - the String and StringBuilder sections
chap 7 - the hashCode() and equals() sections, and only the ArrayList class.
chap 10

The chapters (and sections) listed above ARE NOT a perfect overview of everything you might encounter on the real exam, but I'd say they represent a 95% overlap. We'll be nailing down that last 5% over the next several weeks.

In terms of the OCP - we have some MONSTER additions to make to K&B 7 to cover that exam - we're working on it!

hth,

Bert


Does this still hold good?
