Hi everyone.

It seems like a tradition here so I'm going to give my experience of how I managed to pass the test with a good score.

Study material :

- OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808 (Available here)
- Enthuware tests (here

Managed to do it in one week :

TUESDAY - Chapter 1 & 2
WEDNESDAY - Chapter 3
THURSDAY - Chapter 4
FRIDAY - Chapter 5 & 6
SATURDAY - Reviewing the mock tests from the book and the part I did not get at 100% + Took the two first tests of Enthuware
SUNDAY - Took Tests 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 of Enthuware
MONDAY - In the morning, took the last test of Enthuware and at noon took the real Exam

I had to stay at home for one week because I was sick so I had the plenty of time.

Here's my feeling about the book :

- It is very clear, the chance of tooking mock tests at the end of each chapter is really helpful and the summary helps when reviewing time comes. But sometimes, you do not get as much as details as the test requires, but that is not a very big problem.

Here's my feeling about Enthuware tests :

- The Enthuware tests are really tricky and need 100% concentration when taking them. I think that if you have a avg of 70% on these, you can comfortably take the exam.

Here's my feeling about the real exam :

- I found the exam quite easy and not as tricky as the Enthuware exam (so they were a really good way of practicing).


I'm now looking forward to pass the 1z0-809 but am waiting for the study guide planned for december 2015 if I'm not mistaking.


Good luck if you plan taking it .

Hi Yassin,

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

Thanks for sharing your experiences. Other ranchers will definitely benefit! Have a cow!

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

Kind regards,
Roel

Could you share your Java experience before you start studying as well? Are you a Java newbie or a Java developer for 2-3 years? So other ranchers will get a much better idea of what's possible and manageable?

According to the official webpage of the study guide (for Europe), it will probably be early 2016.

Thank you very much.

I also think it's time for me to relax.

"Belgian beers are the best" => I know that better than no one being myself from Brussels

I'm editing my OPost to add the compl. infos PS : Where can I do so?

PS : Thanks for the cow D

PPS : I can not add my name to the Wall of Fame neither.

I believe posts are only editabe for a limited time. Just post this complementary info in another post.

Hmm, that's weird! Editing the OcajpWallOfFame should be possible for every rancher: click the Edit link at the top, provide your CodeRanch credentials and you should be able to add your name. If it still doesn't work, can you try it in a different browser? And if this still doesn't work, open a new topic in Ranch Office and explain the issue you are having.
