Hello All,

Finally my 3-4 month ceritification journey ended today. I scored 94% on 1Z0-808 exam. Here are the study materials I referred to:

1-OCA 8 book by Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff.
2-OCA 7 book by Mala Gupta.
3. OCA Java 7 by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates
4. Enthuware Mock exams

I read these books more than twice and practices a lot of small programs. But even more helpful was Enthuware Mock exams. I was suprised during the exam to see the questions to be almost eactly same or 99% same on real exams. And of course Enthuware Mocks are harder than real exam. ENTHUWARE IS A MUST. Here are my scores at first attempt:

Foundatoin: 79
1: 74 %
2: 75 %
3: 79 %
4. 90 %
5: 83 %
6: 91 %
Last Day: 86%

I got a higher score on the exam because these mocks prepared me for every possible question that could appear there. It very well worth spent $10.

Also I made my small little notes along with doing mock exams and read them regularly. These were things that's hard to remember and that paid off as well. I won't say the test is that hard. I found it easy actually. You must know about Wrappers, casting, Exceptions, arrays (lots of questions on that), String and String Builder, general java concepts. Must do all the mocks thoroughly.

Thanks to the book authors, enthuware creators and Roel on Java forums. Everything contributed to these scores.

Goodluk

Seems you don't know everything about StringBuilder: it's one word (with CamelCase notation)
