Hi Jon,
In this case
"We check" in every if statement. Even if the first are true, we pass in every if.
Second case:
if else
if else
When the condition is true, we not "pass" in another "if else" statement.

1) Condition is true (for this example true or false doesn't matter).
  if (condition) //we check here
  if (condition) // we check here again
  if (condition) //we check here N times.

2) Condition is true.
 if (condition) //check here
 else if (condition) //ignore that
 else if (condition) //ignore again

I think is that, but if i'm wrong, please correct me

I used the OCP Java SE 8 Programmer II study guide written by Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff and Whizlabs mocks.
The preparation was the same of OCAJP.
1- Read the study guide
2- Read again the study guide and make annotations
3- Code everything
4- Read annotations and take mock exams
I started in middle of january, but i could not focus.
At ending of march i really  started with my study.

My whizlabs scores:
1) Diagnostic Test:  57/85
2) Test I: 62/85
3) Test II: 58/85
4) Test III: 55/85
5) Test IV: 67/85
6) Final: 59/85

Next step: Thinking  1Z0-897.

Hello Thiago! Thank you OCP is more difficult. Especially when it comes to Generics, Streams and Files/Paths methods. But once you pass it, you will have enough to start working or even reading other's code. Also, don't beat yourself too much and keep a normal pace. I think it's really important to let the information sink. Best of luck in your preparation!

Thanks for the advice. I will keep going with patience and baby steps

Thank you ;) !
Congratulations !!! !!! I started my preparation for the OCPJP and I felt a little more difficulty than the OCAJP.

Hi, i think the two mocks are pretty similars.
I made the test (01/18) and pass.
I did the whizlabs and enthuware mocks and my average (in these mocks) was equals.
Srry for my english.
