Today I am very happy, because yesterday I completed the Oracle Certified Associate 8 certification exam.
I was very nervous, but I felt great satisfaction seeing my results.
To begin, I based my study on: OCA Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide Exam 1Z0-808, author Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff (Very good book).
After a month of study with exercises, I started with the Enthuware tests.
Test 1: 56%
Test 2: 70%
Test 3: 70%
Test 4: 66% (I felt stressed).
Test 5: 64% (I took a day off).
Test 6: 68%
Last Day Test: 76% (: D).
Real Exam: 80%
I highly recommend doing the tests of Enthuware, it helps you to understand the dynamics of the tricky questions, as well as to manage your time in the real exam.
If you go out something low in Enthuware, do not worry, just check well on what you failed and practice coding.
I am very happy with this, and I will take some time off before going to the Oracle Certified Professional.
