Hello Mark,

Thank you for your response.

Please can you recommend me good links that will help me from the ground up.

Do you know if more theory is required for Interview questions?

NB: I am new on this forum and don't know the places to look for good tutorials.

thank you again,

regards

Thank you very much I will take your words of wisdom. I will study at a slow and steady pace.
I also want to know, does anyone know is OCA a prerequisite to the OCP exam?
In few interviews they ask for OCP and WebServices.

Thank you.
Hi Liutauras Vilda,

You made my day thanks for the motivation and I will never give up!

By the way "The Shawshank Redemption" and "Stand and Deliver" one of my best motivational movies.

I see a lot of of recommended books and the one that I have read is OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808 - Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff.

Which others are excellent books?

I heard of the below are good book, do you think I should purchase them or should I just stick with the current book that I have and master all the concepts?

OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Certification Guide Book by Mala Gupta
A Programmer's Guide to Java SE 8 Oracle Certified Associate (OCA) Book by Khalid Azim Mughal and Rolf W. Rasmussen

Thank you.
Hello Paul,

Thank you for this information. Is this very safe to insert credit card information and so forth? I did these type of stuff in the past and I was scammed for my money and never did them before.
I am from South Africa, how much will it be does the exchange rates terms and conditions apply based on the value of the Rand?

Thank you.
Hi, Thank you for you response.

I also want to know what is enthuware, it this a free practice exam and where can I find it?

I thought I was ready for this OCA exam but I was so wrong.
Hi All,

I am new on this forum and I have used this place to reference ideas and research. Thank you all for good responses on the topic of Java.

I also work with java on a daily bases for my current job.

I decided to go for the Oracle exam and used  the OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808 - Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff as my study guide. I read the guide many times and even did all the examples. I did this for few months.

To my surprise the exam was crazy and I was totally amazed on the questions that was asked. I thought to myself they are intending people to fail since the time is also limited 150mins for 80 questions. Some questions and stuff asked are not relevant to everyday java programming. In a nutshell it was a total nightmare.

I end up getting 47% and I almost cried.

I really don't know what to do since I really studied well for this exam and sacrificed my family time studying.

I really need to know what should I do?

Please can someone advise me and also where can I get free practice exams similar to the OCA exam. I also can not avoid to waste any more money or money on the practice exams.

thank you very much.
regards
Kyle
