Hi, so today I passed the IZO-808 exam with an 88%!!! I was expecting a much lower score going into the exam as my Enthuware test average was around a 76, but as a lot of people had already said the actual exam is MUCH easier than the Enthuware tests. I used an IDE (Eclipse) to prepare for the exam. I know that a lot of people said that people should stay away from them when studying for the OCA, but as you can see there was no harm done with using one. I feel like they save a lot more time as you can just press Run instead of doing javac/java every time, but I guess every person has their own way of studying. I really recommend buying the Enthuware tests as they were of great help and some questions were REALLY similar to the Enthuware ones. I also used the OCA Study Guide Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff. I would really recommend this book to anyone as it explains every topic perfectly.

Good luck to future test-takers. Do not stress about it too much!

Congratulations Alex, in doing this you have earned yourself a cow.

When you get a few moments please add you story to  the OCA Wall Of Fame https://coderanch.com/wiki/659980/Ocajp-Wall-Fame.

If you next challenge is the Java OCP 809 certification then you may want to look at the stories listed on the OCP Wall Of Fame  https://coderanch.com/wiki/659976/OCPJP-Wall-Fame.
This could save you some time, frustration and money as you can see what resources others have used and how they prepared.

Please, if you still have your Enthuware scores, post them with your story as well.
