Hello everyone, on 03th of March 2016 I passed the OCA Java 7 exam with a score of 98%,
Preparation time: 4 weeks without weekends
Previous knowledge: University Level C++ and almost no Java knowledge
- Started with: OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I Study Guide (Exam 1Z0-803) 2nd Edition (Very bad I could have skipped it)
- Mala Gupta (Excellent)
- OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide (Exams 1Z0-803 & 1Z0-804) - Used only as a supplement to Gupta on some chapters that i missed the most in the exams after Gupta (I didn't have enough time to read the whole book)
- Enthuware (Excellent!)
- CA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide / Exam CD - Good quality the only bad thing is that you don't know how many answers there are. This is bad because it doesnt gives you the real feedback at the end of the exam / it would be much more really if you would know how many answers there are.
- WhizLabs, Kaplan Test and epractize labs sample test - good quality questions but expensive so i took only the samples
- questions and material on the JavaRanch forum
