Ahoy !

I passed 1Z0-819 a few hours ago (78%). Here is a little feedback for those who are planning to take it too.

Background : I work as a Java developer since 2016 and passed 1Z0-808 three years ago (97%). I initially planned on taking 1Z0-816 but had to change my plans after it was discontinued.

Preparation steps :
  • tried Sybex OCP J11 Programmer II Study Guide Assessment Test (score 32%)
  • read the whole Sybex OCP J11 Programmer II Study Guide
  • took notes while reading the book on what was not intuitive to me
  • read the supplemental material on doPrivileged() from Scott's blog
  • developed a small personal project making use of modules, streams, ... only with a text editor and a terminal
  • tried all chapter tests (score between 32% and 90%) and took a lot of notes on what I didn't memorize from reading the book
  • tried the two exams from the book (65% & 55%) and took a lot of notes again when correcting
  • went through all the Flash Cards
  • tried 5 tests from Enthuware (score between 69% and 79%) and then again took a lot of notes when correcting
  • always had a small main method under my hand when studying to test pieces of code
  • reread all my notes the day before the exam and had a good night of sleep !


  • Few notes about the exam itself :
  • questions and difficulty were similar to Enthuware's tests (I wish I had more time to do all of them and score higher)
  • strike-through is gone
  • results are displayed immediately after the exam is finished
  • one question included Callable Statements even though it was supposed to be removed from objectives
  • most important : the clock, the clock, the clock... you really have to be fast so don't go there tired, really !


  • Good luck !

    Hi Oliver,
    I think when you wrote "Callable statements", you meant the JDBC Callable and not the concurrency one. Could you please confirm?

    thank you,
    Paul.

    Hey Oli,

    Did you have Callable in JDBC (stored procedures) or Concurrency (Thread) question?

    As mentioned above that was a question on JDBC CallableStatement, which surprised me because I thought it was removed from the objectives.
