Hello java enthusiasts, I have been preparing for JAVA 8 OCA and following the study guide of Jeanne & Scott. The issue is whenever the chapter is over, I try to solve the exercise at the back and only able to get 50% answers right. I make such naive mistakes like not focusing the question carefully,etc. I don't know why that happens when I came to ch 2 same thing repeated. Some questions I get wrong is due to not understanding the topics and that I can differentiate. I need help or any forms of tips because this might also be happening due to time rush

How much code do you write yourself? The more code you write, the sooner you will become familiar with the rules and the better you will be able to answer questions. Don't sit the exam while you are only getting 50% right.

Cannot tell what exactly is your problem, but these are my thoughts:
  • Perhaps you have small Java experience and this is the cause of your frustration
  • Try to read more theory before rushing to Quiz. It's a critical to know how it works, otherwise you will be making guesses.
  • Try to read not only a book, but also JavaDocs, look at class sources, Java language Specification
  • Try to code small classes when you learn new topic. It will be like "fingers memory"
  • Don't get upset when you fail a Quiz -- the more you answer questions, the better will be results (but do learn a theory first)

    I think I am rushing much as I know I got only 3 months for the exam.

    I do have Java 11 upgrade guide (see the signature) -- because I followed upgrade path (I was OCP 8 when new exams released) and created the study notes for my personal use (and shared for free for others..)

    By the sound of it you are rushing the quizzes. I would suggest that you take your time, and go through them really carefully. First, quizzes are a great chance to learn. Instead of just wanting to finish, you should be learning while doing the quiz. I don't know about other people, but I learn a lot by paying close attention to the code in quizzes. Sometimes the code is written in a way that I haven't seen before, or didn't expect. Maybe it uses API classes I haven't see before. Second, it is really important to be able to methodically work through questions for the real exam. It doesn't just happen. There are so many tough questions on the real exams. It is a learned skill to first understand the question, and then analyse, understand and evaluate the code in each and every one.

    So my advice when it comes to quizzes: don't rush! I wish you all the best for your studying further.
