Pre-exam hints

General approach to preparation

  1. Read at least one book, at least once. Copy, run and play with relevant code snippets. Complete chapter review questions.
  2. Complete mock exams
  3. Prepare yourself for the format/user interface of the test by using the Enthuware mock exam simulator

When are you ready for the exams?

A number of people on JavaRanch believe the Enthuware questions are tougher than the real exam. An average score of 80% on the 6 standard tests is considered "high". Others have scored 90% on the real exam, despite scoring less than 70% on Enthuware — http://www.coderanch.com/t/603063/ocajp/certification/enthuware-average-score-ready-exam .
