Hi everybody!

I passed 1Z0-808 OCAJP SE 8 today LocalDate.of(2015, 07, 30) with score 87%.
My preparation time was Period.ofDays(21).
My goal was to pass the exam with a score over 80% and fortunately I achieved it.

I studied OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide by Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff. It took me 14 days to get through and then I also studied Enthware mock exams for about a week. Leitner mode was very helpful in my case.

It's considered a short period to get prepared for a certification but I studied long hours every day and I also relied on my existing experience as a OCPJP 6.
I decided to walk again the path of a new OCPJP candidate, and not take the upgrade, just to refresh my knowledge of Java fundamentals cause IDE has been my best friend in working environment for several years ;)

Good luck to you too guys!

Loukas

Congratulations on a very good score!

You're probably one of the first doing the new Java 8 exam right?
When I started studying back in November of last year, this exam was still in beta and I like the K&B book which is still for Java 7, so I decided to go for the older Java 7 instead. This morning I passed the OCA (1Z0-803).
