Hi

I passed the exam wth 90% score, I'll leave here my experience in case someone finds it useful.

Books that I used
Sybex's study guide (Jeanne Boyarsky Scott Selikoff) , Object Oriented && java 5 (Claudio de Sio Cesari)(italian free ebook)

Useful websites
java 8 api documentation, CodingBat, /r/dailyprogrammer (coding practice)

Praparation
I prepared the exam in a month, i did 3 mock-exams(scores:65%,88%,78%)taking question from Sybex's OCA8 study guide, I wrote a lot of lines of code to clear some doubt that I had:
order of initialization superclass/subclass, labels, variable&method hiding, Casting etc...

Bye

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

Congratulations! Well done. This post is actually worth for me as I'm reading for OCA. Thank you for those links.
