Hello everyone and first at all sorry for my cavernicola English but i will try to explain what happend:

- I booth and read all book: "OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I Study Guide (Exam 1Z0-803) (Oracle Press)" and i took the mock exams inside the book and passed with a good score 85% in two mock exams.

- But the problem is when i take the mock exam inside the bock of Mala Gupta "OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I Certification Guide: Prepare for the 1ZO-803 exam " im not passed (65% score) becouse there are a lot diference between the exam of two books in complexity.

- The "Mala Gupta" Mock Exam is very hard and the "Study GUide" exam is very soft..... sooo what exam is more closely like the real Exam??? becouse in this moment im very lose.

THanks for your help! and sorry for my very very bad english,

On the positive side: the passing score is lowered to 63%, so you would pass the exam with 65%. On the negative side: it's probably just 1 question more and you would have failed.

If you are not very confident about your java knowledge so far, you have to study harder. A programming language is like driving a car: you can't learn it from a book, you definitely need the hands-on experience. This thread also contains valuable advice & tips to prepare for (and pass) the exam.

No need to apologize. Most of us are non-native english speakers and we all try the best we can.

Good luck!

Welcome to CodeRanch!

I think the answer is "study more before you take the exam." Make sure you understand why you got questions wrong so you don't make the same mistakes on the real exam. It's good to have a buffer going into the exam so you go in without being nervous that you don't know enough.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
