The Christmas season with all its gifts, surprises and hopes is upon us once again!
To get into the festive spirit, I would like to give away free copies of my recently completed book on the OCA Exam, namely Nailing 1Z0-808: Practical Guide to Oracle Java SE8 Programmer I Certification (true PDF, over 450 pages). To learn more of what the book is all about, visit

If you are interested in taking advantage of this free gift and help me make the book better by providing much needed reader feedback, please send me a personal ‛Purple Mooseage’ (by clicking my name and then the PM button.)
The offer is limited to the CodeRanch community members only and extends for a period of one week, until Dec.25, 2016.

Sorry to hear but don't give up. Just out of curiosity how long did you study before taking the exam? Like how many hours a day for how many weeks? The exam is pretty tough even for those of us with a considerable amount of experience. You'll get it next time!
I am going down to the lab. Do NOT let anyone in. Not even this tiny ad:
