Hi Guys,

Hope you are doing well.

Last month I took OCA examination and unfortunately failed it. During the examination I noticed i have an issue to go through the long code snippets. I spend too much time to read the question and provide a response. As a result around 10 questions were left unanswered.

I would like to get a recommendation on how i can improve this gap. This is really a stumble point from me. I am going through preparation materials again and want to schedule the exam once again.

Just for information I am new to Java and don't have any experience so far. I have no issues on grasp of OCA material.

Thank you and have a nice day.

It may help if you could provide more details. What in particular seems to slow you down when you read the questions?

Hi Phil,

On average I need to spend two minutes for one question. When it comes to bit longer code snippet with a few objects, constructors and loops (mainly it was related to encapsulation & polymorphism) it takes me more than the average time to respond the question. I guess i spend much time looking for tricks in a question.
