To register for the course, send a message to ocajp8.eJavaGuru@gmail.com with subject 'OCA 8 Registration: <your name>'.
A group of upto 10 participants connect every week with their mentor and peers over a conference call, discussing their development, clearing doubts. Share a joke, laugh-like a regular classroom!
Do you hate answering mock exam questions? Don't worry. Change sides. Write and share a question every week with your peers. You'll learn how to ask and answer questions better.
Create your own comic strips or images to remember concepts, topics or important points for the exam. Share, laugh, enjoy, remember!
Work on hands-on exercises to get a better hang of the concepts covered in the exam.
Working on a complete project is different to working on small coding exercises. Apply all the exam concepts using a mini-project at the end of the course.
Your mentor will help you to develop this project and assess your code, highlighting your strong or weak areas, recommending best practices.
Billed Per month (for 3months)
Just passed the OCA exam with 95% score this morning. I wanna say "Thank you" to Mala Gupta. You wrote a wonderful book, not just for the purpose of passing the exam (which it serves well), but also helped me understand the language, like the inheritance relation between classes and interfaces.
I am a Java newbie, coming from non-programmer background, with no previous Java knowledge. I learned Java from this book and the Oracle online tutorial. I took me two months to get ready. The book is very friendly to read, covering right the exam objectives, with no redundant or intimidating information. Exam tips, Twist & Tale. chapter exercise, and mock exam are all awesome. Especially when you finish reading and look back when taking practice exams, you'll see how all the confusing points were carefully explained in the chapters. I skimmed through another exam prep book before the exam, you can tell the difference.
This is classic book for certification, loads of visual representations, code samples, compiler outputs and goes into detail of almost most of the topics. The review notes and sample example test at the end of each chapter is very helpful. Most of the concept had real world examples tied to it which made it easy to understand and relate : Example - the writeup on enums, equals() was impressive. The explanations regarding Abstract class and Inheritance was one of the best I have come across.Design patterns were put off very nicely and in depth(as is most part of the book) - there was an example mapping showing some of the Java API's that use Factory pattern. For every pattern there is an use case, class diagram and code sample explained in depth. Complex topics like Generics and Collections are explained in a simple way.
Distance learning is a great way to build skills and enhance qualification along with your present jobs. You can do it from the privacy of your own home as technology continues to evolve, making computers and the Internet available to almost everyone. At the same time one should remember, you get out what you put in, so even distance learning requires dedication.
All popular models of online training like CBTs, online tutorials, even books etc. rely on the student's self monitoring during the study process. It is proven by research that in self learning or distance learning courses, the course completion rate is poor. One reason for this is that the training provider loses touch with the student which leads to students losing interest in the course. The missing point is the presence of a mentor like in a classroom. If one is able to provide a mentor who is always available to answer student's minutest of queries, perform assessments regularly, evaluate examination and projects, then the drop out rate can be cut drastically.
