Unique among Java books, A Programmer's Guide to Java SE 7 Certification, A Comprehensive Primer, Fourth Edition, combines an integrated, expert guide to Java SE 7 with comprehensive review for Oracle's newest Java certification exams. Khalid A. Mughal and Rolf W. Rasmussen have thoroughly revised this tutorial/reference/prep guide to reflect major changes in all 3 Java certification exams (OCA/OCP/Upgrade), including their increased focus on analyzing code scenarios, not just individual language constructs. Mughal and Rasmussen thoroughly address each exam objective, reflecting the latest Java SE 7 features, API classes, and best practices for effective development. Features include:


  • Expert coverage of declarations, access control, operators, flow control, File I/O, concurrency, generics, collections, localization, key APIs, and more
  • Summaries that clearly state and differentiate each objective of the OCA/OCP/Upgrade exams, clearly indicating what topics to read for each exam
  • Dozens of exam-relevant review questions with annotated answers
  • Programming exercises and solutions to put theory into practice
  • Program output demonstrating expected results from running each example program
  • Extensive use of UML (Unified Modeling Language) for illustration purposes
  • An introduction to object-oriented programming essentials and design patterns
  • Advice on avoiding common pitfalls in writing Java code and taking the certification exams
  • Practice Mock Exam to find out if you are ready to take the real exams
