I've been learning Java online with video tutorials and I'm learning fast and I am now preparing to take the exam in a few months time with lots and lots of studying. Thanks
Can i take OCJP 6 and then go for OCWCD 7 directly?

I am preparing myself for EJB certification Iz0-895.
After reading the topics in detail and trying some things practically, I am now looking forward to go through some brain-storming questions to understand my preparation level in each of the topics.
Can anyone point me to such questionare or suggest me good options which are worth buying.

He also mentioned they're still using Java 6. The book he mentioned was written by Katherine Sierra and Bert Bates, and I've noticed that the following book by the same authors will be released in September:
OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide (Exams 1Z0-803 & 1Z0-804) (Certification Press)
I need an excellent book and mock exams as I intend to go through two exams every weekend. If I'm lucky, I might be able to land a job in a couple of months, but I'd like to be really well prepared to just go in there and start work. So far I've gone through Head First Java and I made the partial mistake of using an outdated Thinking in Java book, and I'm about halfway through that one. I've also been working on a personal project.
Anyway, I need two books: a study guide, and sample exams - any suggestions?

Thanks in Adv,

currently am using Pro Jpa 2 Mastering the java persistence API book to study and it also contains a chapter dedicated to EJB 3.1.
So is this book enough to cover EJB topics that i need know for exam ?
Also i came to know about this book from posts in javaranch. But those posts are old, dated back to 2011.
Is there any additional materials like new books or websites containing more useful info about JPA exam available now?

Apart from these you need to understand best practices for jee 6. I think jee 6 tutorial is fine.
For the latest on the exam faqs, visit oracle site because the latest info is there.
