I'm very relieved to pass the Java SE8 Programmer 1 exam today with a score of 87%.
I do work with Java most days but still needed some revision to get in the swing with exam type questions.
The material I revised with was the Kathy Sierra book and a video series on Safari Books Online presented by Simon Roberts.
It is a LONG time since my last similar exam, I actually did the Sun Certified Java Programmer 1.0.2 exam back in May 1997...
I'm thinking of doing the SE8 Progammer 2 exam in a couple of months.
