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.
I was hoping that someone who has written the exam could clarify the following question for me.
I have purchased the Whizlabs practice exam software and have recently started using the product. (By the way, it is a great product minus the spelling mistakes.)
I have written the diagnostic and first practice exam and have noticed that they not only inform you how many questions you have correct but also give you a percentage based on how much each question is worth. So, I was a little taken aback when I got 51/69 on my first practise exam and it told me I still failed.
I think it with HF is an invaluable tool for preparation, I just want to know exactly how the exam is graded.
I have seen people writing here is that the real exam is a bit easy compared to whizlabs and other commercial mocks. So a decent score in whizlabs should fetch you a good score in the real exam! As far as how the grading is done, it is up to the creators of the exam to help you!
