Hello everyone, my name is Bangun Edma Saputra. I'm from East Kalimantan, Indonesia.
First of all i just wanna say sorry about my english in this post. I just wanna share my experience with Oracle 1Z0-808 exam.
September 10th 2018 I took the Oracle Java 8 Programmer 1Z0-808 exam and have passed it with score 85%. The background why i decide to took this exam because i always say that i could do Java Programming to everyone. But i just said it, i don't have a tangible evidence that can proved me as a Java Programmer.
Firstly i wanna take the 1Z0-803 exam and i read some book related on it. But after reviewing on this webpage, it said that this certification will retired at the end of 2018. That's why i decide choose the 1Z0-808 and read another book. I use OCA: Oracle® Certified Associate Java® SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide Exam 1Z0-808 by Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff's book as my reference and mock exam from Enthuware. The Coderanch's forum also help me with the preparations, what book that perfect to read, the tools, tips and trick and any useful things. I spent two months from July 2018 to learn, deeply studying about Java 8.
Honestly on the day i took this exam, my body is unfit, little fever, my eyes getting dried and it's quite difficult for me to see the dazzling display. Maybe Oracle can reviewing about the background color of the exam so exam taker can switch to night mode. . That's why keep healthy especially before the exam is very important. Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff also told it in their book.
And Thanks to God i finally passed the test with score 85%. Some subject that you need to improve released within the exam result.
Thanks Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff to release the great book, Enthuware, everyone in this forum, and everyone who read this post. May you can pass this exam too. My next target, of course the Oracle 1Z0-809 exam.
