Good morning,
First I would like to say hello, my name is Danilo, I wrote only a few post here in this forum.
I am studying since 2 months ago for the OCA 1Z0-803 with this book OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I Certification Guide - Mala Gupta.
I just read/study and tried every exercies.
At the end of book, I tried the exam with 90 questions(I know now It is 70 questions) , I have done the test very quickly without thinking so much and in more or less 1 hour.
At the end my score was 62,3 % nearly to pass the exam so I was happy.
Of course It was just a test to see how was the exam's format, etc.
Now I want to buy some simulation of exams. If I am not wrong, the best are enthuware.
What do you advise me now?are the enthuware exams enough? Or Do I need to buy more test?at What score Do I need to arrive before to be sure to pass the exam?

1 buy exams
2 tried exams up to my score will be more than 80% ? and set a date for the exam?

Thanks
Have a nice day.
Danilo

Please note that the mock exam of Mala Gupta's study guide is considered to be easier than the actual exam. So you probable score less on the actual exam, which means you'll fail the actual exam.

Enthuware mock exams are indeed considered to be the best on the market. These exams give you great value for money! If you use these exams wisely, you won't need to purchase other exams. If you score consistently 80% or more on the Enthuware exams (only scores on 1st attempt within time limit count), you'll have excellent odds to pass the exam. But it's not a guarantee, because there could always be external conditions which influence your score on the actual exam (a blackout, too much distracting noise,...)

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel
