    Java SE 7 - OCP and OCA study guides

    922278
      Hi,

      i would like to take the two exams necessary to become "Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 7 Programmer".

      Does anybody know if the study guide "OCP Java SE 7 Programmer Study Guide" (http://www.mhprofessional.com/product.php?isbn=0071772006) will cover the arguments of both exams "1Z0-803 Java SE 7 Programmer I" and "1Z1-804 Java SE 7 Programmer II" or is it necessary to read before "OCA Java SE 7 Associate Study Guide" (http://www.mhprofessional.com/product.php?isbn=0071789421) to prepare to the first exam (1Z0-803) of the path?

      Thanks

          Hi.

          The OCP Java SE 7 Programmer Study Guide has not been released yet, but it will cover only the topics related to the 1Z0-804 Java SE 7 Programmer II exam.

          To prepare for the 1Z0-803 Java SE 7 Programmer I exam, you will need to use material specific for it, such as the book OCA Java SE 7 Associate Study Guide (which has not yet been released as well).

          Some topics of both exams are similar, and the 1Z0-804 Java SE 7 Programmer II exam goes a bit further in some of the topics in the 1z0-803 exam, but some others are specific for the 1Z0-803 Java SE 7 Programmer I exam.
