And if π leaps out at you from that - or indeed the other 300 million of you actually wrote your dates that way - you'd get no argument from me.

Hari Kiran Grandhe wrote:Congrats on passing OCA 8 exam. To gain some solid knowledge on the topics that are covered in OCPJP 8 exam, you could go through the following books along with Java 8 in action:
Java SE 8 for the Really Impatient, Cay Horstmann, Addison-Wesley, 2013
Java 8 Lambdas: Pragmatic Functional Programming, Richard Warburton, O’Reilly, 2014
Mastering Lambdas: Java Programming in a Multicore World, Maurice Naftalin, Oracle Press, 2104
Functional Programming in Java: Harnessing the Power Of Java 8 Lambda Expressions, Venkat Subramaniam, Pragmatic Bookshelf, 2014
The reason why I suggested these books is because OCPJP 8 provides considerable focus on Java 8 features.

When I passed the OCAJP7 exam, I shared my experiences here, including some information about my different iterations through the questions. But how you take the exam is often a personal thing and if you feel comfortable with the approach you followed during the Enthuware exams, just stick with this approach. There is no reason to change it as you pass every mock exam very comfortably and you still have some time left. Never change a winning team!

If it was possible, I placed a 100 Euro bet on you passing with a +80% score. That's how confident I am!

You get a review page: this page contains some explanatory text and then you have a table which contains all incomplete questions and all marked (for review) questions (ordered by question number). At the bottom you have at the left 3 buttons:
