Hi, Today I am proud to announce that I pass Yesterday my first Java exam. It is Java 8 SE Programmer I exam 1Z0-808. I was on very good instructor lead training and I learn about 6 hours a day on that training and then about 5 hours later on the evenings entire week. My result score could be better. On some questions I simply could not find the exact correct answer and in 77 test questions I fail on about 6 questions, so my score was 91%. I know it is not bad, but with about a half year of learning the language itself and then after class training it should be better. Anyway if you like to get good worth certificate I can encourage you to choose this one as a first for Java 8. I plan to pass it in this year and I did that, I am very happy of that. I wonder what yours opinion about certifications in Java? Do you plan to pass exams?
