Hi everybody,

I am new here in Code Ranch! I am a Junior Java Developer from Spain. I would like to prepare the exam for March/April better for March! Nevertheless until I am sure that I can pass it, I don`t go to buy it.

At this moment my score is about 55% something like that. I need to review the rules that I am missing and try to understand everything. Hopefully at the middle of February I will be able to score 70%.

My goal is to go to the exam with more than 80% of the questions correct.

Regards, ;)

In the OcajpFaq (besides other very useful information) and this thread you'll find an overview of all available (free and commercial) resources (study guides, mock exams, video courses,...) to thorougly prepare yourself for the certification exam. And on the OcajpWallOfFame you'll find plenty of (links to) experiences from other ranchers (including resources they have used). So it can be useful to determine which resources are useful (and which are not).

If you use the search function, you'll find plenty of topics with advice to prepare (and ace) the OCA exam. Here are a few:
  • Studying so hard just to fail(1z0-808)
  • Failing Java SE 8 Programmer I
  • Bad Experience with OCA 7 exams
  • Any tricks about how to manage the 120 min for so many question?
  • second failed OCAJP
  • Need some advice after failing the exam


  • Hope it helps!
    Kind regards,
    Roel

    Sorry, it is this one: OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide. (OCP is quite far)
