Hi,
I have got the OCA SE 8 Programmer 1 book and bought the Enthuware kit as well to practise side by side.
I only took the standard test and felt most of the questions were not covered in my book.
Am I the only person having this issues, or do you guys felt the same.
Please let me know, what are the other books, I can get?
Thanks in advance

"Most of the questions" is surprising. Do you have some examples?

Thanks for your reply.
Please see the below questions,
1)
        class MyString extends String{    
              MyString()
               { super(); }}


Answer: You cannot extend string class because it's a final class. I am sure, the book never discussed that String is a final class anywhere.

2)Identify the correct statements,

So many options were listed but this is the correct answer.
Local date, Local Time and LocalDateTime implement TemporalAccessor.

Again, same. I have never seen any info regarding TemporalAccessor.

3)Which of the following are true regarding the new Date-Time API of Java 8?

Answer: It uses the calendar system defined in ISO-8601 as the default calendar.

and there are some more questions as well.

#1 - We cover that on page 104

#2 - You definitely have to know the classes but not TemporalAccessor. Depending on how the question was asked, this might have been implied rather than something you need to know.

#3 - You don't need to know that for the exam. Mock exam authors often put "extra stuff". What is considered "extra" varies.
