Hello everybody!. It's my first post but I read the forum since a long time.
In the last month I decided to increase my knowledge in Java and I saw in the Oracle certifications a great way to do it. I'm not a native English speaker, and I started learning English and Java the past year, with a basic knowledge on both the English language and programming.
It took me one month to prepare me for the exam.
I was concerned a little because of the language of the exam, but the exam was very comprehensible in every word.
My grammar is not perfect, so please be comprehensible and tell me about anything that I could change if necessary.

I made use of:
-- OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808
     This book is great, it has all the necessary so I didn't need to read other sources while studying.

-- Enthuware: JA+ V8 for Oracle Certified Associate - Java SE8 Programmer I
     If you want only to pass the exam, the book is enough, but if you want to learn more details and target a perfect score Enthuware is necessary.

I had a bad day before the day of the exam so I couldn't sleep at all. I was not nervous but I was very drowsy and tired.
Now I will start studying to take the exam 1Z0-809, I expect to be ready soon and have a better day before the exam.

Thank you all.

Thanks Ganesh, I should add a quick tip for the exam. It's very important to read every answer, even if it seems obvious and a waste of time it isn't. Sadly I ran out of time so I couldn't do it with the last 20 questions.

Thanks again Ganesh, yes, reading all the options is the best way to avoid falling down on the sly questions.

Thank you!. Indeed, the Enthuware and study guide book combination was perfect, at least it was for me, some people should consider read more material before going to Enthuware. I tried to take two mock exams per day, and it was a really bad idea, so I did one per day.
