Hello,

I just cleared the OCAJP exam a few hours ago with a 72%. Its not a great score but I am very thankful for it. A pass is a pass.

Looking back, I really thought i got most of the questions right...hmmm...

Going to add my name to the wall soon.

Much thanks to :

1. OCAJP Associate Java 8 Programmer Certification Fundamentals 1Z0-808 by Hanumant Deshmukh

2. Mala Gupta's book (OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Certification Guide)

3. Jeanne & Scotts book - and their accompanying sybex exams. (OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808 by Jeanne Boyarsky (Author), Scott Selikoff (Author))

4. Enthuware !! Last but not least.

Good luck to all.

I have a background in Java by means of education - and also a few years of work experience using it. For OCAJP specifically, it was many months of studying on and off.

What would your advise be, to a newbie?

Also, in your opinion, how difficult was the exam? And would a newbie be able to handle it (w/o any real world experience?)

Code a lot using just notepad and the command prompt to execute the java program. Change things around, dont just copy paste the examples in the books - try to really understand whats going on. The exam wasnt "easy" - I had to really think about things. Prepare to see a lot of code and to be able to pinpoint whats wrong with it.
