I took the OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I exam on April 9th from home. My experience was not good, needless to say i did not pass. During the exam, I was conscious of the camera. The proctor kept interrupting me (3 times) to adjust my camera so she can see me. I lost several minutes with that and every time after she interrupted I would be more conscious.
Also, not having a paper to write was very hard for me. The whiteboard on the exam was not user friendly.
I practiced Mock exams using WhizLabs and the questions on the exam where nothing like the question on WhizLabs. The questions on the actual exam where much harder. The code one the exam was a screen full and the answer choices have several lines of code as well. Did any one else have similar experience?
Those of you who took this exam recently, how did you prepare for the exam? Which online practice tests did you use? Any suggestion or guidance will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Anu
I saw many people who passed here used Enthuware mock exam. This can be part of your preparation.
Before you proceed to mock tests make sure you read carefully some OCA guide (there are several on the market)
