Hello guys , sorry for not updating about OCJP these days ….. I wasn’t able to study daily as I was bit busy with my final year project and some other reasons and this isn’t the place to discuss why I wasn’t able to study .. This post is to tell you that from today , in 25 days I will try to complete OCJP syllabus , each day I will post what I learned and will also post the example programs I practiced. If you guys want to study with me its best to buy Kathy Sierra book as it would be impossible to explain each and every topic I learn but I promise I will answer any and all your doubts . For best results its always advisable to follow a time table. Check out the below image to find mine.
I plan to do each topic in a row in a day, you can observe that some topics are big while some are simple ones. My idea here is to do huge topics at saturday , Sunday or any other day which i need not go out and small topics on regular days like days which I have to go to college or days which have usual disturbances. So if you are following me till now , I guess everything is clear except the “flash cards” column. Yes, I am gonna use the flash cards method even here in OCJP after having huge benefit from them in GRE. So How to make flash cards for OCJP ? Its pretty simple , the same way you do for GRE. Take a 3 X 5 index cards and write question on the front and answer on the back , do them for the areas in a chapter which you feel needs more memorization. Do not ignore the power of flash cards , it can do wonders especially for people who spend much time commuting (like me 🙁 ) I know, many of you might be having doubt like why to blog while studying? or why make a schedules like in the above chart ? By having study schedules and blogging it creates some sort of stress on us to study regularly. The word stress is taken so negatively, stress itself is not a bad thing. It can often help us perform our best, expand beyond our limits and achieve things that would otherwise astonish us. I hope you do not take me negatively . I am not doing this to brag or for any other reason , I only want to help you guys while helping myself 🙂
