Hi To All,

I have been in the industry for 3 years and I decided to take the exam just yesterday 2015/10/12 and I am very very VERY happy!!! that I pass the exam and flying colors!.

The references/materials that I used :
OCA Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I by Jean Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff
OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I Certification Guide, Prepare for the 1Z0-803 exam, by Mala Gupta
OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide (Exams 1Z0-803 & 1Z0-804) (Certification Press), by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates.
Enthuware Mock Exams

Study Plan:
-Duration: 1.5 Months
-I reviewed almost every night 1 hour only when its working days reading/coding! always CODING guys !
-I reviewed whole day every week end (6 hours) a day reading new chapters and CODING..... CODING again guys!!
-After 1 month of reviewing with books, I decided to buy the Enthuware Mock Exam Software for Java 8
-I first took Foundation Test, then the result is 65%, I was shocked! after that I study all of the chapters again where I got incorrect answers.
-Then all the Objective Type Exams and Reviewed them all, specially the incorrect answers.
-Then after that, I took all of the Standard Tests, and every after test I reviewed my incorrect answers then continue to the next test
-The final test !
-I am not allowed to share any information, question I have read in the exam but what I can share is that most of the question in the mock exam is by far most closed to the real one!
-Mock exams are actually more harder than the actual.

During the exam day:
-I woke up early 4AM !! to review all the standard test that I have took,
-When i got to the test center I took the admission processing
-My exam will start at 9AM so I still have 45 minutes to review, and so I did, CODING, and MORE CODING
-When I finally at the front of the computer I calmly(but I guess Im lying here!! haha im actually nervous) click the button start
-When I have reach the item 65 I felt some comfort already that I will pass!
-I finished the exam with the remaining 45 minutes, so I used it to review my answers,
-after reviewing I still got 28 minutes, and so I decided to end the exam.

Reviewing Exam Result:
-after finishing the exam I was notified to wait for 30 minutes to process the result
-I received a mail from oracle on how to review my exam result
-I reviewed it and All of my fears was gone! I pass with flying colors of 91% !!

This site is actually one of my asset in reviewing OCAJP, by reading the past experiences of the other test takers!!

SO I SALUTE YOU GUYS! THANKS NOW I PASS,
AND ITS MY TURN TO SHARE MY EXPERIENCE

I HOPE I WILL ALSO BE LISTED IN THE WALL OF FAME OCAJP.. HOPING !!!

sincerely,
Mark Ortiz

Mark,
Congrats! Have a cow for sharing so much detail about your journey.

You actually edit the wall of fame to add yourself. It uses the same username/password as the forum does.

I sure hope I can achieve as much as you re this exam. I tried it about 2 Months ago and did dismally. I am currently using the Certified Associate Java®
SE 8 Programmer I book and after seeing your post a few minutes ago, I went ahead and purchased the EnthuWare mock exam - Thank you for the heads up. I am going to go all in with my next attempt. I want to write the exam in about 10 days.
