The OCP Java 7 Programmer Certification tells potential employers that you're ready to start designing and building efficient Java applications. Passing the exam isn't just about knowing your Java, though. You have to understand what to expect on the exam and be prepared to recognize the built-in tricks and traps.

OCP Java SE 7 Programmer II Certification Guide is a concise, focused study guide that prepares you to pass the OCP Java SE 7 Programmer II exam (1Z0-804) the first time you take it. It systematically guides you through each exam objective, teaching and reinforcing the Java skills you need through examples, exercises, and cleverly-constructed visual aids. In every chapter you'll find questions just like the ones you'll face in the real exam. Exam tips, diagrams, and review notes structure the learning process for easy retention.

What's inside

Readers need at least entry-level Java skills. This book concentrates on the exam objectives rather than providing a comprehensive introduction to Java programming.


Mala Gupta has been training programmers to pass Java certification exams since 2006. She holds OCP Java SE7 Programmer, SCWCD, and SCJP certifications and she is the author of OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I Certification Guide (Manning 2013).


This Early Access version of OCP Java SE 7 Programmer II Certification Guide enables you to receive new chapters as they are being written. You can also interact with the author to ask questions, provide feedback and errata, and help shape the final manuscript on the Author Online forum.
