Congratulations, Juerg! Yes, attempting questions in the real exam is definitely more challenging than taking mock exams. But you did it. Good job indeed :)

Glad to know our services were helpful :)

Hi guys,
today i passed the OCA 1Z0-808 exam with 91% on first attempt. I was already a Java programmer and this has been my exam preparation (overall i spent about 100 hours only on saturday and holidays, never after work or on sunday):

I started reading "OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Exam Guide (Exams 1Z0-808)" by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates at 24 July, making self test at the end of every chapter with an average score of 64% (i've read every chapter only one time)
After that i didn't study anymore, but i continued praticing by doing mock exams, initially with simulator provided with book (about 500 questions) and then using enthuware OCA java 8 with this result

Date Test Result
04/09 Foundation 78%
05/09 Test 1 71%
06/09 Test 2 81%
07/09 Test 3 84%
08/09 Test 4 80%
09/09 Test 5 76%
16/09 Test 6 86%
23/09 Test 7 84%
07/10 Last day 74%
14/10 Easy (30 question) 90%
14/10 Tough (30 question) 90%
19/10 Very tough (30 question) 77%
19/10 Most missed (30 question) 77%


Average mock exam score: 79%
Real exam score: 91%

As said by other people, real exam is easier than Enthuware mock exams, so if you are comfortable with them don't be afraid

Foundation: 78%
Test 1: 66%
Test 2: 80%
Test 3: 73%
Test 4: 80%
Test 5: 64% (bad day :shock:)
Test 6: 74%
Test 7: 67%
Last day: 76%
Real exam: 85%

As others has said, the real thing felt much easier than the practice exams. I'm pleased with my result as it's higher than I was expecting based on my practice attempts. I even realised a few silly mistakes I'd made on the way home, so could have been higher! I thought after reading the Boyarsky and Selikoff book I'd be prepared, but I definitely would not have passed without the Enthuware tests. Thank you for providing such a great service.

Passed IZO-808 exam today with a grade of 95%. Prior to this i have experience with Java chiefly with designing Android app etc. I did really bad on mock exams since I am mostly self-taught in Java, average of ~65% sometimes worse on mock exams but I reviewed everything I missed and visited forums for the harder questions I didn't really uunderstand. I also use the official Study guide for the course (Recommended book #1 i think) and went over online materials including practice exams. then I took the last day mock exam once I felt i was prepared and got the most decent grade of all my attempts, then reviewed all the questions (regardless of whether missed) from the mock exams before taking the actual exam. Thanks Enthuware the explanations in particular were very good!

Last day: 84%
Real exam: 95%

As Enthuware helped me so much, I feel compelled to share my results here.

My mock exam scores:
Test 1: 73%
Test 2: 76%
Test 3: 79%
Test 4: 80%
Test 5: 74%
Test 6: 80%
Test 7: 80%
Last day: 83%

Real exam: 87% :D

It's been said many times before, but the mock exams are extremely similar to the real exam. The main difference, in my opinion, is that the real exam has some very easy 'giveaways', easier than most of the 'very easy' questions in the mock exams. There were some pretty hard questions too though, just like in the mock exam. So on average I guess that's why the real exam scores are higher than the scores on the mock exams.

Thanks again to Paul and your team (if there is a team? :)), I don't think I would've pulled it off without you!

Hi,

Today I passed my 1Z0-809 with score 83%
My enthuware test scores:
73%, 59%, 61%, 71%, 76%, 72% (last day exam)
Additionally, after passing all test except last day.
I reviewed all the questions (except "not in syllabus" part because I had absolutely no time)
in LeitnerMode -> QuestionView with writing notes for myself
in order to have something for last hour selfcheck.
The exam felt even a bit harder than preparation because almost all questions had big source listings
and much less questions were just "select right answer to a question from 4-5 alternatives". I would roughly estimate at least 2/3 of the exam as "tough and very tough" probably with several "real brainer" questions. Be ready for this!
Because of that I barelly managed to finish before time was over and to check a couple of questions that had looked suspicious to me when I passed them. You will have exactly the same ability to mark such questions as it is provided in enthuware software.
If I had just 1 week more for preparation I would feel myself much more confident. My suggestion is that you should not try the exam before passing at least a couple of enthuware tests with 80 score.

Big thanks to enthuware team. Without you I would not pass this exam for sure.

Hi everyone,I passed my OCJA8(1ZO-808) exam today with a score of 75%.Here are my Mock Test Scores:

Foundation Test - 64%(Failed)
Test 1 - 74%
Test 2 - 59%(Failed)
Test 3 - 66%
Test 4 - 69%
Test 5 - 56%(Failed)
Test 6 - 74%
Test 7 - 60%(Failed)
Last Day Test - 67%

Real Exam - 75%

I was expecting a bit more(80%) but I messed up in 2-3 Questions,It's fine though that I cleared this exam since it was my first Oracle certification exam and I belong to Non-IT Background(Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering) but If I give OCJP8 or OCJA9 exams in future then I will surely more score than this no matter what happens.Some questions were very similar to Enthuware Mocks(Few even Same).So,good luck to everyone who wants to give it in future and last but not the least,A huge thanks to the man himself.Paul you truly are an amazing programmer and I hope that one day I could be as good as you.I am becoming more and more passionate about programming day by day.Btw,the question I asked you about exception reference variables was the last doubt I had before exam.xD I am a Electronics and TeleCommunications Graduate but I want to work in IT and I am looking for a job at a fresher level and so far,I have learned Java,SQL,PL-SQL and Android.Is that sufficient Paul for a fresher?

Finally,A big big thank you to the Enthuware Team for providing such a quality software and being responsive at lightning speed.
