Dear All,

   After long 9 years of career break I passed my  1Z0-808 - Java SE 8 Programmer I with 78%. Not satisfied with the marks , but still happy I made it.

A special thanks to Roel De Nijs whose informations and valuable threads were really useful for my preparation and boosted my confidence

I prepared using OCA 8  exam guide by Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff and also the one by Mala Gupta.Both  books really helped me.Thanks to both the authors.

Finally I used Enthuware suite for my final preparation. Its really worth buying. It helped a lot in facing the real exam.A big thanks to the Enthuware team.


Last but not the least, a big thanks to the Code Ranch Forum .

My next goal is OCPJP SE8 certification, Hope I can make it.


Thanks and Regards,
Femy

Thanks for sharing this insight!  I'm preparing for OCA and didn't know about this.  Looked it up and I think $10 is a reasonable price if it's helpful, I'll do it.

Congrats Femy!

While 78% is a fine score, it's good you were hoping for higher. Being a perfectionist is a good skill in a programmer .

Congratulations, Femy!

Did you find that the Enthuware Mock exam scores were similar to your official exam score?

Great to hear! I received a low score on my last 3 Enthuware test. These results made me realize that I just need to pump the breaks. My plan was to get the certification this Summer before my fall semester starts but this has made rush my prep.

So, my new goal is to not seek to improve my test score but to understand the language -- the certification should be a byproduct of that.

Thanks again for responding and good luck on the OCP!
