Hi,

I was trying to login to the online test exam environment linked from here: https://www.selikoff.net/2015/01/23/oca-8-book-online-material-and-practice-exams-now-available/ , so this page is what I'm trying to access: http://sybex.com/go/ocajavase8

But I just get some maintenance page. It's been like that for at least a day. Last week I could log in fine, though.

Does anyone know how long it'll take them to fix that page? It helps a lot for studying.

Garrett,
Another reader noticed this. We tried reporting it via the customer service site. I'm going to ask our direct contact to see what is going on.

Hi Garret Saunders,

First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

It was reported here as well.

Have a cow for reporting this issue! That was not only very helpful for other ranchers (using this resource), but also notified the authors (as they are very regular visitors of these forums) and so it was fixed rather quickly.

Kind regards,
Roel

I want to emphasize that it is up now and has been since June 21st. Roel must have just gotten back from holiday and is thanking posters for old posts . Seriously though, my first reaction when I saw this post bumped was that it was down again. Phew, not the case,
