I passed the 1Z0-808 Java SE 8 Programmer I with 80%.

The resources I used were:
1. Head First Java 2nd Edition – Covers Java 5.0 by Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates
2. OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide by Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff
3. This Forum of course

When I reading the OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide, authors suggested that it would be good if you has some basic or if you have never written a Java program before (im from C# background), they recommend pick up any version of Java. Head First Java, 2nd Edition is one of the authors recommended. I find it very useful and I can read it and understood very fast.

My experience, do more practice but don’t use those Intellij or similar products. Im using Notepad++, every time I had compiled error, I did learn something from there, this help me remember the syntax and rules better, because debuging the code you can find out more information.

My next target OCP

Good Luck for other challengers
