as in the title, this week I have passed 1Z0-808 certification scoring 85% (at first attempt ).

Here my program study:

- more or less, I have spent 0,5-1 hour per day for three months.

I have studied on Mc Graw Hill OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Exam Guide (Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates) and refined the test preparation with Enthuware tests.

I have studied the book three times and, obviously, I have done lot of self made exercises. After I have completed for the second time the book, I have started Enthuware tests.

Here the score I have done at the first attempt on each test:

- Book
Test 1: 53%
Test 2: 60%

- Enthuware:
Test 1: 60%
Test 2: 71%
Test 3: 74%
Test 4: 80%
Test 5: 70%
Test 6: 69%
Test 7: 69%
Foundation: 76%
LastDay: 81%
(Enthuware average: around 72,2%)

After the first attempt, I have done a second time that tests.

For the real examination, I know a lot of people suggest to use the mark and review later, but I preferred to spent more time on the first reading.

Good Luck
