Hi all,
today I made my first Oracle certification (OCA Java SE 8) and I passed it with a score of 97%.
Attached you can find the CertView view

What did I use to study?
Principally the Mala Gupta book (it's really well done), but in the meanwhile I was waiting for the Mala Gupta's I used the Selikoff's (it's good but it doesn't retain the information as the Mala Gupta's does).

How much time did I use?
2.5 months, but I'm also working during the day, so let's say 1 month in the end.

Did you use any simulator?
Yes, I used the Enthuware simulator and the Sybex simulator (just once), but actually the exam was much easier than the mocked ones.

Congratulations! Great score indeed!!!

All the best for the next one. OCP is a lot tougher than OCA, so don't be misled by the simplicity of OCA

I just so the index for a moment and I already implicitly understood what you wrote. It's much bigger, but also more interesting.

Hi, can you tell us your mocks exam score ?
