Just took the exam, got 73%

Okay so I just took the exam for the fist time, feeling somewhat negative at the moment, got 73%... but I'm not the type to quit this easily. Where to next?

I used this book http://www.amazon.com/OCA-Java-Programmer-Certification-Guide/dp/1617291048

And did mock exams from here http://www.amazon.com/Certified-Associate-Programmer-Practice-ebook/dp/B007SA1GNU

But I don't feel like going through the same stuff again, can anyone recommend something new, I see a lot of people recommending this http://www.epractizelabs.com/certification/sun/javase7oca.html is it worth it? Or pretty much more of the same as the exam prep I already have, should I just suck it up and start from the beginning again :P

Don't get upset! It's just one more step.

Speaking about me, I used two books: one by Finegan/Liguori and another by Gupta. Also took Enthuware mock exams. Got 95% today.

Good luck and successful passing!
