Hello,

I can't find free mocks for OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I? Are they available?  What about quality? Is it better to pay 10Eur for fastspring?

I can only speak from my own personal experience but I would strongly recommend you to get the Enthuware exams. I recently passed the OCA exam and I can honestly say that a big part of my success was due to these exams. They prepare you really well for the real one.

Almost all people here speak highly of Enthuware, so there must be a reason why that is.

Hi Brecht. And do you think that preparing the exam with both books, OCA study guide and OCA/OCP JAVA SE8 could be enough without Enthuware exams?.

It is difficult to say. It depends on your background, your experience, how fast you learn, etc. But I can tell you how I went about it. I have used the following materials to prepare:
- Scott's and Jeanne's OCA book
- a video course on Udemy (because I like the format)
- the enthuware mock exams

I was very happy with those. Also try to write as much code as you can. That really helps. And in case of any doubt, there is always the CodeRanch community to help you out.
