Hi everyone,

Four months ago I did not even know what Java is. Then I started reading some books and abandoned them one by one. The only one that I liked was "OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808" by Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff (by the way, a great thank you to the authors).

A very big thanks goes to Enthuware Studio, too. The score was:

Foundation: 72% time 1:23:56
Test 1: 71% time 1:46:16
Test 2: 79% time 2:02:41
Test 3: 76% time 1:39:56
Test 4: 70% time 1:39:20
Test 5: 75% time 1:54:36
Test 6: 87% time 54:23
Last Day Test: 74% time 1:55:19

At all tests I responded from the first attempt, I did not review any questions.

At the real exam I expected 80 questions, but it only had 70(?!).
Personally, my real exam seemed much harder than Enthuware, because although I received only 70 questions, I only had 2 minutes left to submit. All answers was first attempt, too.
In the test center, the monitor had 15 or 17 inches and was really upsetting with some questions that I had to scroll up and down all the time to see the question and the variants of the answer.

Thank you!

Oracle changed the number of questions within the last two weeks. I noticed on May 14th and updated our oca page that day. The actual change might have been a bit before that though.
