When I passed my OCA 803 exam on Aug. 20, I checked the website of Oracle and was told that I need to finish 90 questions in 150 minutes. But today I am very surprised to find that Oracle has changed the number of questions for 804 exam from 90 to 66, although the duration is not changing (still 150 minutes).
Does this mean that each question is longer and/or harder than before? Anyone has the experience of OCP 804 exam in its new format (66 questions)?
That's an interesting question.
I didn't noticed the significant change in the questions number.
I also passed the 1Z0-803 attending the exam with 90 questions.
Passing score (65%) might be the same though...
Yes it only took me like 1 hour and 20min to finish it. My score was 75% and i saw that i have missed some really easy questions. Just like you i thought questions will be really long and complex since they reduced the number of questions but they were not that difficult actually. If you can get around 70% for enthuware exams i think you are good to go..
Finally I took my OCP 804 exam yesterday morning and passed it with my score of 83%.
I spent 12 days on preparing for OCA 803 exam (from Aug 8th to Aug 20th) and passed it with my score of 71% (very low:( ). After that, I moved my way to prepare for OCP 804 exam and earned my score much higher than my OCA 803 exam. Well, I'd say K&B is a bible book and I learned a lot from reading it from cover to cover. Surprisingly, I find the two mock exams contained in the CD of this book is horrible in (i) wording and (ii) wrong answers. So take Enthuware's mock exams (only $9.95).
I'm a student and took two Java courses in a community college from last Fall. That's it.
