I've passed the OCA Java 8 exam today

Thanks a lot to Jeanne & Scott for their superkit and work that they did!

special thanks to Enthuware team for the famous mock exams and Mala Gupta for her OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Certification Guide

My path:

September 2018 - February 2019: Learning the OCA and OCP books of Jeanne & Scott.
That was not very easy as I earn money with Ruby, not Java. Both books were transformed into flashcards to review regularly (391 cards of OCA,
749 cards of OCP)

03/23/19 - 04/04/19: Final review/memorizing OCA flashcards and doing Jeanne & Scott's OCA Practice Tests (450 questions) along with OCA book Assessment Test

04/05/19 - 04/14/19: Doing mock exams:
- Jeanne & Scott Practice Tests OCA mock exam
- Mala Gupta's OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Certification Guide mock exam
- Enthuware OCA Exam #1
- Enthuware OCA Exam #4
- Enthuware OCA Exam #3

My percent of errors was almost constant during all the mock exams: about 1 incorrect answer for every 7 correct ones. After the third Enthuware exam I felt sick of any more mock exams

The real exam was predictably much harder for me than the mock ones, and I spent almost all my time (7 minutes left), despite the fact that real questions generally seemed to be a bit easier than mock exams' ones. But despite the good score, I clearly feel that OCA is my ceiling for now. More hard work is needed to pass OCP.
