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 excellent instructor lead training, and I learned about 6 hours a day on that training and then about 5 hours later in the evenings the 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 failed about 6 questions, so my score was 91%. I know it is not bad, but after about a half year of learning the language, it should be better after class training. Anyway, if you want a good worth certificate, I can encourage you to choose this one as a first for Java 8. I plan to pass it this year, and I did that. I am delighted about that. I wonder what your opinion is about certifications in Java? Do you plan to pass exams?
