Thoughts on Passing Oracle's Java Certifications
Java certification is highly regarded in IT Industry and provides a Java developer with recognition worldwide. It helps find a better job, get a better salary, and even a better raise or bonus at a current job. That’s why thousands of Java developers try to become a certified every year, but success is not easy. Oracle’s Java Certification has a tough passing percentage, close to 65% for both OCAJP (the Oracle Certified Associate Java Programmer) and OCPJP (the Oracle Certified Professional Java Programmer). You need in-depth knowledge of the Java language and API to succeed in the exam.
As a note, preparing for OCPJP is not very different from OCAJP, though you have to use resources that are focused only on OCPJP. You also need to cover more topics and more in-depth because OCPJP 8 is certainly a tough nut to crack.
