You can take enthuware mock exams. It is very affordable, $10 for 7 exams.

Yes, Enthuware is always good and worth spending money. I also recommend this.

As you have failed both Enthuware trial tests (Java 7 and Java 8) on first attempt (second attempts don't count because you probably answer questions correctly rather by memorization than actual knowledge), I would recommend purchasing the full Enthuware OCAJP8 mock exams. Just take the first full mock exam in exam mode (use no other resources than pen and paper; time limit appies). Your score will be a very objective indication of your current Java knowledge and readiness for the actual exam. In this topic you'll find some great advice about how to prepare/study using (Enthuware) mock exams. Definitely worth reading!

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel
