Hi. January 21, 2016 I passed OCA exam with 88%.
I took me 12 days to go through all the exam topics, from 3 to 5 hours each day.

I'm very happy to be certified, but not with the result because I made some stupid mistakes that I wasn't supposed to.

The resources I used were:
1. Boyarsky Selikoff-Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide;
3. Mala Gupta - OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I;
2. Enthuware mock tests.

I'm very thankful to the authors of that resources.

From now on I'm studying the OCP exam topics.
I'm planning to pass OCP in 3 month.
I think it's enough time for me to prepare for the exam.

Good luck for everyone!

Congrats Ruslan!

I think your timeline is reasonable for the OCP. It definitely takes longer to study for the OCP than the OCA!
