Hi Guys , I am new to Java Ranch. I have registered to give the OCA-8 examination on 8th March. I was preparing for OCA-7 but decided to give OCA 8 since it's latest. After seeing the level of questions , I am very nervous and I do not have the time and money to order the new OCA8 book. So can you please help me by proving links to OCA8 Materials and Mock Tests?? Please also give me preparation tips Since only one month is left. I appreciate your help and advices.

I'm also eagerly waiting to get the OCA java 8 study guide. I google it and found it, but not for free. If you got, and willing to share it to me, i'll be very much thank you for you

Rohan: Welcome to CodeRanch! The OCA 8 exam has the majority of topics in common wit the OCA 7 exam. I recommend using the online mocks linked to from the top of this forum.

Jude: I don't know of anyone who has written a free study guide for the Java 8 exam. Maybe you can use the online tutorials?

If you don't feel confident about your level and knowledge, you should simply postpone your exam. You can reschedule your exam for free. According to the Reschedule Policy of the Oracle Certification Program Policies there's just 1 restriction: you must reschedule at least 1 business day prior to your exam appointment.

Since last week Enthuware released the JA+ V8 for Oracle Certified Associate - Java SE8 Programmer I (1Z0-808). So I would definitely give this exam software a try. Based on many user reviews, it offers great value for money.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

Without any doubt the biggest advantage of using a study guide (for any exam) is that you have a book which bundles everything you need to know to pass the exam. Writing such a book is a very daunting task! In the first place, of course, for the authors. But also a lot of other people put time and effort into this book: graphic designers, technical reviewers, content editors,... I think most study guides are very reasonably priced, certainly in comparison with time and efforts several people put into the making of a study guide (it takes months to write and publish a study guide). Most study guides (I know/used) have an excellent value for money.
If you don't want to purchase a study guide, you'll need to do all this work yourself. I think a good starting point (besides this forum ) are the Oracle tutorials.

But there is also another possibility! Here on the ranch we often do book promotions. In January we had a promo for OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808 (by Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff). And on March 10 there will be a promo for Java SE 8 Programmer I: Guide to the Oracle Certified Associate (by Guilherme Silveira & Mário Amaral).

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel
