Hello! I'm a little new here but I have been learning Java for a year. I really want to pass the OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Exam. It's been a little hard for me to do it, so can anyone who passed the exam teach me how to do it? I already bought the book, "OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808," but it still hasn't been working out for me. I also have the LiveLessons OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Video Course. It's been helping me out a little bit. Please list the cheapest ways to practice.

Thanks,
Maxwell

Hi Maxwell,

Please go through our OCAJP FAQ thread OCAJP FAQ Which will help you.
I already bought the book, "OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808,".

You bought the right book. OCAJP8 tests only Java basics in depth. You don't worry about exam. You will feel exam is quite easy than you think after writing the exam.
I can suggest you "please read the OCAJP8 by sybex book  3 or 4 times (till you get clarity on all concepts)." Do not take any test till you get clarity on the concepts. Do more revision. Once you get clarity on the concepts , take the tests chapter wise. If you identified you are lack in any concept, go through that concept and get more knowledge about it. Once you done , go for another chapter practice test. After you taking all chapters practice tests individually, Do revise all chapters for atleast 2 times . Now take tests on Whole syllabus.  If you identified you are lack in any concept, go through that concept and get more knowledge about it.

Hope this helps !

In my opinion OCAJP8 by sybex (which you bought) is sufficient. It has covered all the points related to every exam objective. Do study that book 3 or 4 times.
