Hello Ranch Community!
I need your help in clearing my doubts and providing some suggestions.
I'm a software tester for 3 years and have been working in manual testing mostly. The only experience I have with programming is writing some quite basic selenium automation code. I understood that to be an efficient software professional it is better to be proficient with at-least one programming language. My confidence level is quite bad when it's about learning programming. I enrolled for java online program in Udemy but still I was not feeling comfortable with the knowledge being passed over in the course. Hence I made the decision to do the OCA Java SE 8 (1Z0-808) exam, so that I can learn the basics of the Java as per the Oracle standards.  
For the purpose of preparing for the exam I started studying from the book by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bartes. I'm currently starting with the 5th chapter in the book, I read and learn after my working hours each day. I have also enrolled for the practice test from Whizlabs. After finishing with the exam guide I plan to take the practice test. I will take the exam in the month of July.

Will this be enough to pass the exam and also gain valuable knowledge in Java.
Also if I pass the exam, then what could be the steps I could follow to strengthen my knowledge and use it

Have a great day ahead!

Sorry for the long story but I wanted to let it out
