OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808 Fast and safe, this is a must if you want to learn Java SE 8
Libro perfecto para la certificacion de Java SE 8 OCA Bueno pues hecha y pasada la certificación de Java 8 1z0-808 no puedo más que recomendar este libro. Está totalmente enfocado a la certificación. Cuenta con 6 temas: 1. Java Building Blocks 2. Operators and statements 3. Core Java APIs 4. Methods and Encapsulation 5. Class Design 6. Exceptions El libro te aconseja un periodo de preparación de unos 3 meses. Considero que es un tiempo correcto para alguien que tenga ya cierta experiencia en Java y POO. No es un libro para aprender Java. Al final de cada tema tienes unas 30 preguntas para hacer tipo test y si te va bien, pasas al siguiente tema, si no, vuelta a empezar. En la página de respuestas tienes además la explicación de por qué una opción es correcta o no. El libro está en inglés, pero a poco que tengas cierto nivel de inglés técnico, no debe suponer ningún problema ya que ni los conceptos ni el vocabulario utilizado es alto. Al final del libro tienes algunos consejos de cara al examen, también te suelen avisar de las típicas preguntas trampas (mucho ojo con este tipo de preguntas) y poco más. Yo he pasado el examen SOLO con este libro, sin hacer tests de ningún otro sitio. Con este libro si afianzas bien los conocimientos y pasas los tests de cada temario sin problema, el examen es puro trámite.
Worth Every Penny I'd read two Java books prior to buying this one (Java in easy steps, Java in 24 hours) and so far i'm halfway through. I'd definitely recommend reading an introductory book or two before this one. I found that knowing how a program is laid out and a lot of the features of the code was really useful for understanding this book and that where the previous books taught me how to build a specific program and useful bits of code, this book taught me about the rules and intricacies of the code I'd been using so that I could start creating my own programs from scratch and avoid or identify errors. The book is very well written and the questions do their very best to catch you out which really helps build your understanding of how the code actually works. Definitely recommended. And hopefully I'll be doing the exam soon.
Great book for java certification exam study, but make sure to do lots practise tests also This was a great book which I used as the basis of study for my Oracle Java SE 8 Associate Certification which I passed with 90%. It’s easy to read, and has good code examples to demonstrate the various concepts. I read the book three times over the course of a couple of months in preparation. One important piece of advice : reading this book alone will not prepare you for the questions in the exam. It’s absolutely vital to take lots and lots of practice tests which can be found online at various sources. The questions are very tricky and the only way you will get good at answering them is by practicing lots of them. Also do some mock exams online which give you the same number of questions and time as the real exam as that will teach you to guage and manage your time well. So studying this book along with lots of exam practise and you will be all set to get your certification.
If you want to take the OCA exam this is a good choice. The 3 online practice tests are very ... Besides a couple of errors this book is very well written. If you want to take the OCA exam this is a good choice. The 3 online practice tests are very nice, a little bit harder than the real one, but it makes you well prepared. I read it twice and passed the exam with 90% from the first try.
easy to follow and highlights the quirks of Java This book is very well written, easy to follow and highlights the quirks of Java. I've just passed the OCA exam using it. The practice tests are harder than the majority of the OCA exam but that's just to make sure you're fully up to speed before sitting the exam. The book does have a lot of errors but there is an error list freely available on the website that accompanies the book. I'd expect future print runs to have the errors corrected so you won't need to spend an hour or so going through correcting it.
Good book but beware of errors Having passed my OCA 8 exam at my first attempt I thought it appropriate that I should review this book briefly. This book did its job and primed me well for the exam. I Read it 3 times but skipped the test and review questions for each chapter due to the numerous errors. I also purchased the Kaplan self test suite. I feel the large number of errors stops this publication for being worthy of 5 stars they should put this right with further editions. The code examples would be better if they were layed out on one page, having to flick back and forth between pages was not helpful. All in all still a good book worth getting if you intend to do the certification just the errors let it down. I think the explanations throughout are concise and read well.
