Hi,

I have passed my Oracle Certification Exam 1Z0-808 (Java SE8 Programmer I) this week with a 98% score. Since I took tips from this forum when preparing for exam, I would like to share my experience in case it would help anyone.

Study sources:
1. OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE8 Programmer I by Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff.
2. Enthuware tests for OCA-JP-I-SE8
3. Testing code in java ide.

To start, the book is essential for everybody. Read it 2.5 times and sometimes went back to the topics I was not good enough in.

Enthuware tests are incredible in solidifying java knowledge with comments on almost every answer. They are much harder than the ones in exam. My scores were: 73-72-74-76-83-86-78-85 percent.

Finally i found that testing code in java ide (i.e. eclipse) is crucial in understanding questions you are still not sure about.

I hope that helps. Good luck!
