Just passed 1Z0-819-J with 82%, I'm a 20 years old computer science student, started a month and a half ago with the free java training that Oracles provided (more than 30h of video), then practiced tests and questions with "Java OCP 11 Practice Tests".
I took the exam from my home, everything went smoothly, no complaint, I was scared because I heard something about an eye tracker, but at least in my case, every went nice.
I got a question about how to initialize a channel, also a really strange question about ResourceBundle, in which the files were called MissingResource.properties, but in the ResourceBundle.getBundle, the MissingResources, with a "s" in the end was called. Don't know if that was intended.
A couple of questions about Stream, also quite some on Java OO approach. I think only one of security, one about PreparedStatement.setNull.
In my opinion, this certification is only worth it if you take this offer only paying $25, I learned so many things that are just not useful, had to learn many things memorizing when you could just take a look at the documentation. Really, unless you really need it, or that you don't mind spending some extra money, paying $220 for this certification I think it's not worth the price. I'm still a student, so I could be wrong and maybe this certification is really useful. I would love to hear your thoughts.

hi Juan

well done passing and a great score too (I just failed).

I guess the API memorisation there's 2 sides to it, I think it brings attention to various classes and functionalities (for those new to Java especially), but I do agree the exam is heavy on memorisation ( when in real world you'd just check the API ).


I'd be interested in hearing how you found the speed ( I struggled with reading the code samples quick enough , I'm an experienced dev and don't do much speed reading of code ).

Well done Juan! You have a bright future ahead as a computer scientist!

Did you get any questions on Arrays and Collections? Also what about annotations and concurrency?

Thank you and congratulations!

For me, it is beneficial to know classes and functionalities, but when we have to learn even overloaded methods, I think its too much imo, I wouldn't mind more questions about theory and less about concrete details.

The time for me was quite okay, I heard many complains about people struggling about the time, but I guess I read quick, I was able to review most of my answers before finishing it.

I don't know about Juan, but In my case I got questions about Arrays, a really simple one about a nested for-each loop with a 2d array, also questions about Arrays.sort and using Arrays.binarySearch with a custom comparator. Also one question about a custom annotation, along with 1 or 2 questions abour concurrency.
