The same kind of question has been asked . I given my suggestions OCA_study_Tipes. If you are preparing for OCA7, I would recommend you OCA7 by Mala Guptha. It is like spoon feeding.

The average of 65% in mock exams is not good.
You have to increase your results from mock exam to mock exam. Until you get over 80% for example. Or until you feel yourself comfortable with questions and manage all the 80 questions in time.

You were really close. I"m sure you'll have it this next time. I agree the questions were confusing. Here's some ideas that might help:

- I suggest you print out the OCA objectives and go over them one-by-one and make sure you know each of them well.
- I suggest you look into the questions on uCertify. Those were the closest to the actual test.
- Focus on the things you don't know very well and find info on those from other sources than what you already used. I noticed not all topics were covered thoroughly uCertify course material
