I just made the OCA Java SE 8 (1Z0-808) exam with a score of 71% in the third attempt. In the first two, I got a frustrating 47% and 60%, but had only six weeks to prepare for the exam. The material I used was the book tests OCA Java SE 7 Mala Gupta and excellent book OCA certification preparation, by Jeanne Boyarsky. I did my training with tests of any of the books and internet, javaprepare.com, although there are old and too easy. In my first review, I not yet knew the excellent book by Boyarsky mentioned and some 20 questions left unanswered for lack of time. In the second, I improved my time answering each and finally in the third, I managed to pass but not on a high note. I am a teacher and already had experience in Java, got the SCJP certification for Java 2 in 2001. My next target is the second exam OCP Java 8. I think I will rely on the book OCP Boyarsky and Jeanne Scott Selikoff. I have not tried the software testing Enthuware, which seems to be highly recommended and for the examination of OCP, which seems much more difficult than the OCA.

Congratulations champion! Great achievement Now it's time to relax a bit and have a (well-deserved) (or 2 or 3). And if you want to spoil yourself have a Belgian beer, our beers are the best of the world

Don't forget to add your name to the OcajpWallOfFame!

No doubt! It will be much harder than the OCA exam for 2 reasons:
1/ you'll have to know much more advanced topics, like generics, collections, file nio, threading, concurrency, jdbc,...
2/ you'll need a more detailed knowledge of the contents to be able to answer the questions correctly.

Kind regards,
Roel
