3.0 out of 5 stars Don't use this book as your only reference for the real test
By B-Dub on February 14, 2019
OK. The Java SE 8 Prog. 1 study guide is a decent book but not 4 stars worthy. Please do yourself a favor and get "Java - The Complete Reference Ninth Edition" by Herbert Schildt to help you study for the cert test. The reason for this is because the OCA book does not completely explain certain concepts that the end of the chapter review quiz will ask you. For example in Chap. 6, on exceptions page 307, the book talks about Try Catch Finally code blocks and tells you that a try block cannot be declared by itself and needs a clause after it but fails to mention what clause is required if there is no clause listed. But in the chapter 6 review quiz question 3 asks you explicitly when are you required to use a Finally block and the section on this topic never says explicitly when. I found that issues like this are present throughout almost the entire book and because of this you cannot rely on this book alone get a passing score on the cert test. As a disclaimer, I do not claim to be an expert programmer however I do have both a degree in Computer Science and Information Systems and started coding in Java back in Java 2 in 2004, so I feel that my opinion on this matter has some credence. If you're serious about passing the Java cert test using only this book won't get you there.
