I am new to JAVA. I have programming experience in C and PL/SQL.
I have finished headfirst java (initially 7-8 chapter in very detail and others a go through).
Now to make sure I am learning JAVA I am trying to attach my learning with certification.
Hence I have started searching for SCJP but got confused with OCJP. Through some googling I am sure now that SCJP and OCJP are same.
My queries:-I would recommend that one, yes. The certification website should list resources you can use to prepare.
1. What is the latest version of the book SCJP Sun Certified Katherine Sierra( through reviews seems great book to learn and crack the certification)?
2. I see many JAVA certifications on the website of Oracle. Which one to go? Or which one I will be able crack through the book I mentioned above?As you already figured out, you should start with OCJP. The last time I looked that was also a prerequisite to be able to do any of the other certifications.
