Tips and Tricks for the OCA Java SE 8 Certification Exam!

Tips and Tricks for the OCA Java SE 8 Certification Exam!

June 28, 2016
frontpage, Java

As we plan to certify our people in Java, I started digging for information about OCA Java SE 8 Certification Exam. I was wondering how/where one can take it, what materials are needed for preparation and of course some tips & tricks that one can use while being examined. Below is the Java certification path.
Java SE 8 Certification Path


Luckily, Hristo happened to know a person that just became “Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 8 Programmer”.  I invited him in the office to share some insights. Believing that sharing is caring, I decided to publish Gavrail‘s presentation where you can see some tips and tricks on the OCA Java SE 8 Certification Exam.



Moreover, below are some additional resources that can be helpful:

1. PearsonVue Test Center

2. Java Certification Path

3. Book – OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0 -808

4. Video Series – OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I 

5. Passed OCAJP 8 (1Z0-808) with 91%

6. Quora –  What is the best book to prepare for OCAJP Java 8 Exam?

The key to success is practice. Go do your homework because you don’t want to waste your time and money. 30 to 40 percent of all people taking the OCA Java SE 8 Certification Exam fail to certify due to lack of practice or nervousness. Be calm. Be prepared. Go at least 30 minutes earlier and you’ll pass it for sure. Hope what’s written above is helpful. Wish you luck and happy certification.

    Thanks for the wonderful article.

    I just read in one of the websites that we will not be receiving any certificate after passing OCA exam instead we get a certificate only upon completing the OCJP exam.

    Would really appreciate your inputs on this.

      Hi Renu,

      Thank for the nice words and the comment.

      I think this is not true as two of our people recently passed the OCA exam and received certificates.


  • Mpilo Mylo Makae

    Thank you for the article :), Just wanted to ask how much time do you think is sufficient in order to prepare or is that totally dependent on one’s comfortability with the language?

    • Hi Mpilo,

      Thank you for the comment. For someone that has 2 or more years of experience are needed at most 3 months. 1,5 months for reading the book on the exam and 1,5 months for making tests. I mean 3 months of spending on average 10 hours per week.
