I have never seen any example of OCA exam questions in Russian. As far as I know the most of people prefer to take the exam in English. But the reason of my interest is that Russian translations of most of English textbooks which concern Java have a very specific feature: almost all of them translate "operator" as "operation" but use "operator" to translate "statement". Actually I know the only Russian translation which uses values of these words in there straight meaning. So it is very interesting for me what about exam questions? Becouse some basic terms concerning Java building blocks could look confusing for the person who use different text books in different language to prepare himself for the exam. But the worst thing is that he can met controversial questions while taking the exam.

Is Russian an official OCAJP certification exam language? I know it does exist in (Modern) Spanish.

The OCJP 6 was given in Russian. I wasn't aware the OCAJP 8 was.

That said, I would strongly suggest you take it in English. Your English is fine in this forum. And your study guide will likely be in English. I would assume translations would "lack precision" which is a risk for taking the exam. That said, exam questions are more code heavy than text heavy. So finding a question where this distinction matters is likely to be low.

I am also not a native English speaker and even if the certification exam would have been available in Dutch (my native language), I'll take the exam in English. First of all because most study guides and other resources are in English. Secondly translating questions into another language can be very tricky (this mock question is an excellent example). And thirdly because there are only very few text-only questions on the exam.

Roel,
That's a great example. I can hardly imagine what would happen if that question were translated!

And what about this kind of question from Programmer I page 50:
#23. Which of the following are true? (Choose all that apply)
A. javac compiles a .class file into a .java file.
B. javac compiles a .java file into a .bytecode file.
C. javac compiles a .java file into a .class file.
D. Java takes the name of the class as a parameter.
E. Java takes the name of the .bytecode file as a parameter.
F. Java takes the name of the .class file as a parameter.

C, D. Java puts source code in .java files and bytecode in .class files. It does not use
a .bytecode file. When running a Java program, you pass just the name of the class
without the .class extension.

As for me D and F are the same. Because it is not mentioned anything concerning file extension but just about its name.

Vitaliy,
That question is testing if you know the command is java MyClass (option D) vs java MyClass.class (option F). The period is important. I hope that a translator wouldn't remove syntax.
