I think the main issue I am having in general is KNOWLEDGE RETENTION (memory issue). There are simply too many "laws" or "rules" to be followed and its hard to retain all of them in my head. Even worse is to "apply" those RULES when the time comes in the exam. Ill keep reading / practicing tests for some more time till im comfortable.

Happy New Year.

Actually I got hold of the online version of the book (Safari books) so I started reading OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808 by by Jeanne Boyarsky  (Author), Scott Selikoff  (Author). I am now on chapter 4. Just filling up the missing details in terms of my knowledge with the OCA exam material.

I did read Mala Gupta's book and always code using notepad only for this test preparation.  I just fail to see whats wrong with the code and get tricked by the code shown in the exams. I guess ill just keep studying till im better at it.
Hi All,

I took Java in university around 10 years ago and i always loved Java and still do - however I am having trouble passing Enthuware mock tests from the first time. Are they really much harder than the real exam ? How close are they to the real exam ? I am afraid of attempting the OCAJP exam in fear that i might lose the 300 plus dollars - I always get a score of 55 % and sometimes even 40%. I understand all of the concepts but fail to catch the errors in the code. I also miss out on the questions with analyzing loops . Its really hard to be a "human compiler". Usually when i code, i rely on the compiler to tell me whats wrong - and coding is really a Trial and Error activity in my opinion. Every time i book the OCAJP exam , i cancel at the last minute in fear that i might fail.
