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 just breezed through the K&B once but did a lot of mock exams from Enthuware averaging at around 85%-90%. I learned faster in mock exam rather than the book because Enthuware provides explanation for answers outright. That took me two months to prepare and practice with my Netbeans programs.
I think the real exam were easier but questions were just really tricky. Finished the exam in 1.5hrs.
I hope to do better in my next exam to follow, OCE-JWCD 6, hoping to score at least 90%.
