Hi All,

This is a day, when I can announce that yesterday I passed 1Z0-803 exam with 75% score and achieved OCAJP7 Certificate! Maybe it is not that good result, but... A few years ago I failed SCJP6 by 1 (one!) percent point. Then I decided to give up...
But all this time I feel that java is important for me. I could call it my hobby. I haven't worked in java (but 10 years in IT and programing anyway). I come back this year. Studying for last three months very hard.
I used OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I Certification Guide by Mala Gupta, Enthuware and also this forum, which was very helpful to understand some nuances.

Enthuware Scores:

Starter: 87%
Test1: 69%
Test2: 80%
Test3: 79%
Test4: 79%
Test5: 77%
Test6: 81%
Last Day: 69%

For me the exam was a little bit easier than the enthuware tests, so I don't understand how did I get worse result (stress?), but at the and of the day I did it! Now I can start to develop my java skills. I would like to work as a programmer first. Any helpful suggestions what should I do next?

To everybody, who is preparing to the exam. Don't give up! You can do this! If you feel java is your thing, then there is nothing what could stop you! ;)
All the best and thank you!

Congratulations!!
Yes, it could be due to stress. Some people do not perform that well on tests even though they know the stuff. Practicing more mock exams should be helpful.
