I passed OCA 8 with 71%.

I'm student and have no professional experience writing code in java.
Did my OCP Java SE 6 in 2011.
I want to write the OCE Java EE 6 Web Component, so I can have a good job as a Java Web Developer,
since I come from Mozambique and I'm studying in India.


I started preparing for OCA 8 , 3 months ago.

Resources:
OCA 8 Sybex Guide by Jeanne and Scott.
All the chapter assessments were really tricky and thoroughly tested the concepts I learnt.
I give 10/10 for the Sybex guide.


Code ranch Forum: I read all the questions from other ranchers and tried answering a few of them.

The Sybex Mock Exams were much tougher and trickier when compared to real exam.

Mock test 1: 70%
Mock Test 2: 75%
Mock Test 3: 78%

Thanks to all fellow ranchers for helping me out.
