Oracle released the OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I certification today. There are 77 questions and you get 2 hours to take the exam. The passing score is 65%. The topics have not changed since the beta.
You may already know that Scott and I wrote a study guide for this exam. The Kindle edition is already out. As of January 8th, the publisher was still working on posting the downloadable materials (3 mock exams, flashcards and glossary) that go with it. You can download those once they become available if you’ve bought the Kindle edition (or hard copy.) The hard copy is available for pre-order, but has not yet shipped.
We look forward to seeing your comment and questions in the OCAJP forum at CodeRanch. Also, you can see our book page for any errata or updates about the exam.
