Top 5 Free and Paid OCAJP, OCPJP Mock Exams and Practice questions - (Java Certification)

In order to do well on Java certifications, you need good books and a reasonable number of practice questions before you go for exams. Practice questions and mock exams will help you to assess your topic-wise preparation level and help you to identify your strong and weak areas. Based on the result of the mock exams, you can concentrate on areas where you lack expertise like multi-threading is one of the tricky areas. It will also expose you to exam patterns and different types of questions you can expect in examination like multiple choice questions, rearranging code, fill in the blanks etc. Though I highly recommend commercial exam simulators like Whizlabs and Enthuware, I also suggest you take advantage of many mock questions which are freely available.

In general, free practice questions are not as good as those from Whiz labs and they lack explanation, but still, they provide a chance to identify your weak and strong area. 

Since Java 8 certifications are quite challenging and there are not many resources, sample questions and mock exams are available, I thought to collect and publish some of the free Java 8 mock exams which you can take online.

By the way, If you are looking for a course to prepare Java SE 8 certification then Oracle Java Certification - Pass the Associate 1Z0-808 Exam! from Udemy is a good place to start it. It explains about new features of Java 8 required for OCAJP 8 exam.

My only advice to all Java certification aspirants is don't just read the book or mock one time, read it couple of time to get most of it. It's better to read same book multiple times than reading multiple books one time.

@Maimuna, no 1z0-808 or in fact any Java certification exam doesn't have any negative marking.

I don't recommend Wizlabs tests. There are only about 2 multiple choice questions in every test, many times they are written incorrectly (intx = 7), and from the fourth test onwards, many questions are repeated, even in the same test. I don't know about the others, but hopefully they are better for passing the exam.

I have a question. Is it a big difference between the books listed aat point 4 and 5 for OCA exam? I have only learned from the book OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide (Exam 1Z0-808). And also, what was the level of difficulty from 1 to 10 as far as you remember as i can see the post is from 2015? Thanks alot for the useful information :D

javin paul said...

Hello Sinziana Chis, both are study guide and cover the syllabus but Jeanne's book is more focused on exam and if you have to buy one book, I suggest to buy the 4th one i.e Jeanne's book.

The OCA exam is relatively easy, difficulty level 6 but again that's relative, so not a good indicator but its definitely easier than OCP and you can score over 90% of 2 months of hard work. If you use these books and mock exam properly.
