Hello everyone,

As many ranchers here, I also wanted to share my story in order to help prospective OCAs. The journey to certification was not short and but not so difficult for me.
I was not a novice since I have learned Java years ago but never really captured the essence of it.

Below are my study sources:

1. Code Ranch;
2. OCA/OCP Java SE 7 I&II Study Guide - Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates (read only the first part);
3. Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I - Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff;
4. Enthuware Mock Exams(for OCA-JP-I SE8).
Scores:
  • Standard Test 1 - 91%
  • Standard Test 2 - 91%
  • Standard Test 3 - 91%
  • Standard Test 4 - 91%
  • Standard Test 5 - 88%
  • Standard Test 6 - 92%
  • Standard Test 7 - 86%


  • p.s checking discussions about particular questions helped me a lot.

    While learning, I took a lot of notes, so I was able to recall easily things I learned.

    Real Exam Score - 97%

    Hi Sahadete,

    Congratulations champion! Great achievement Now it's time to relax a bit and have a (well-deserved) (or 2 or 3). And if you want to spoil yourself have a Belgian beer, our beers are the best of the world

    Thanks for sharing your experiences. Other ranchers will definitely benefit! Have a cow!

    Don't forget to add your name to the OcajpWallOfFame!

    Kind regards,
    Roel
