Passed OCPJP with the use of   OCP Java 8 Study Guide by Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff:
Special thanks to the authors ,l only used this book for the study and nothing else except javadoc to get a few issues clear to me as l had no prior exprerience.
Here is how l di the study
1.l grabbed the above metioned book read it cover to cover in 4 days only 3 hours per day .l understood nothing except chapter 1 which had some concept from OCA.
--l  only did this to decerease my fears and familiarise with BIG words in java(CyclicBarrier ,ExecutorService )

2.l read the book this time with my sublime text editor  and practicing every concept  and  it was better ,after finishing every chapter , l had to read it again before attempting end of chapter questions
3.after finishing the book l think you guess what l did next ...Read the book again this time it was making sense and l started helping other people who were posting  questions  on facebook especially on concurrency and java.io
4.finally l did the assessment test at the beginning of the book  on my day of exam.
5.finnaly l passed and was very happy
6.if the question is how long would it take for a person with no prior experience to pass l wouldn't say anything except that read  until you know that you know and write the the exam  
Thank you so much Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff for your information .

Congrats Talent! I like how you used our book to iterate. I was nervous when I saw step 1 as that's not what the book is designed for! But then you proceeded to use to keep drilling down which is great.
