Look for patterns about what you don't know. Write lots of code around that code. Make flashcards. It's not enough to just read the chapter if you aren't retaining the details.

You are correct that you won't pass the real exam with 40% on the chapter questions.

Could you provide more detailed information about your preparation? Do you only read the book? Do you write small code snippets? Do you use an IDE? What's your background? Do you have any Java experience before preparing for this certification? And so on.

In the OcajpFaq (besides other very useful information) and this thread you'll find an overview of all available (free and commercial) resources (study guides, mock exams, video courses,...) to thorougly prepare yourself for the certification exam. And on the OcajpWallOfFame you'll find plenty of (links to) experiences from other ranchers (including resources they have used). So it can be useful to determine which resources are useful (and which are not).

If you use the search function, you'll find plenty of topics with advice to prepare (and ace) the OCA exam. Here are a few:
  • Studying so hard just to fail(1z0-808)
  • Failing Java SE 8 Programmer I
  • Bad Experience with OCA 7 exams
  • Any tricks about how to manage the 120 min for so many question?
  • second failed OCAJP
  • Need some advice after failing the exam


  • Hope it helps!
    Kind regards,
    Roel
