This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Hello, I passed earlier today with 79%. To be honest it was a bit of a nightmare. I arrived at 9:30 sat down at the PC started my test completed the survey then got that famous message... "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shutdown". I couldn�t believe it! They then started the test up again having to reset it because it though I had already completed the test with a score of 0. Of course what happened, the same message. Once again the exam had failed me, more phone calls to Prometric. An hour and a half later I was told they�d downloaded me a new exam and if that didn�t work I�d have to do it on another day. Well that started and worked ok. Grrr windows!!! Anyway the test itself was much harder in places than I�d expected but also was much easier than expected. I think what makes this exam different from the programmer/web developer exams is that in this test you may fine two correct answers when it asks for only one. Its just one of those will be more correct than the other! My mocks are a lot easier than most of the questions in the actual tests however as said before the UML, Messaging, Internationalization questions are very easy. Anyway good luck for the test Ian
congratulations. you were so luck. They failled me twice in half an hour today . Every time I tried to start the test, it said test driver failed. Finally they told me that I have to re-schedule. .I will take the test next week again. So I have two more days to prepare my test.
Thanks, My mock tests seem to cover the basics you should know. You should be scoring 100% in all the tests before you go for part 1. What my mock tests lack though are the scenario based questions where the question is difficult to understand/poorly worded (well I'm halfway there!) You need too be sure of when and why you are using one technique over another. Ian

hi Ian: I got a question for you. When I tried to take the test, it said there will be 75 minutes for 45 questions. I thought I should get 48 questions. How many questions did you get for your test?
Hi Ian: I am very pleased to know that you passed the exam. Thank you very much for your great contribution your questions are really smart composed I enjoyed them so much!!! Thank you again for your enthusiasm I wish you good luck in parts 2 and 3. Qand.
