Four months ago, I passed Java Silver, so I looked back on it. I will write it because I thought that I would like to study from now on and help people.
Java Silver is an Oracle-approved Java technical level certification. In the universal vendor exam, especially Silver and above are common qualifications that are universally accepted. It seems to be the most popular Java-related qualification.
Java Silver is a 77-question multiple-choice exam with a 150-minute exam time. A score of 65% or higher is considered to be a pass, so if you answer 51 or more questions correctly, you will pass. The examination fee is ¥ 26,600 (excluding tax).
An overview is excerpted from the official page of Oracle.
It is a qualification for development beginners who has the basic programming knowledge required for Java application development and can perform development work under the guidance of advanced users. The purpose is to evaluate not only everyday programming skills, but also the ability to respond to situations that occur in various projects.
First of all, when I say "Java Silver", there are two applicable qualifications depending on the corresponding Java version. This time, I will explain about "Java SE 8 Programmer I" (** 1 Z0-808-JPN ). ・ Question sentences in Japanese ( Exam number 1Z0-808-JPN ) ・ Question sentences in English ( Exam number 1Z0-808 **) There are two types, so be careful not to make a mistake.
Rakuten Ichiba Oracle Official Page Rakuten Ichiba is a little cheaper, so I recommend it. The expiration date is 6 months from the time of purchase, so you don't have to worry about it. After purchasing, you will receive an exam code by email.

A list page of the Oracle certification exam will appear, so if you search for "java", Objective ** Java SE 8 Programmer I Exam (Exam No. 1Z0-808-JPN) ** There should be, so click to proceed with the reservation To the question "How would you like to take the exam?" Select "Local Test Center". (You can take it at home or at work, but the procedure becomes even more complicated)
Next, the details of the test will come out, so be sure to come here.

Let's check if it is displayed.
If you select the test center, you can select the date and time to reserve from the calendar. The days of the week you can take the test vary depending on the test center. I took it at the Nishi-Shinjuku Test Center, which happened to be a convenient day.
If you can check it in the cart and there is no problem, proceed to the next step and enter the examination code of the purchased ticket to make a reservation. Pearson VUE will send you an email with your ** Oracle Testing ID ** when your booking is complete. I think it's best to make a reservation at least one week before the exam. (Detailed below)
After testing at the test center, confirmation of test results should be viewed on CertView. In order to use CertView, you first need to create an account called "Oracle Profile". Create Oracle Profile (https://login.oracle.com/mysso/signon.jsp) Click "Create Profile" to create an Oracle profile.
After creating the Oracle profile, when you log in to CertView, You will be prompted to enter "** Oracle Testing ID " and " Oracle Profile ID " for initial authentication. The " Oracle Testing ID " can be found in the exam appointment confirmation email sent by Pearson VUE. " Oracle Profile ID **" is the email address registered when creating the Oracle profile.
The steps here are a little tricky. `CertView's initial authentication cannot be performed from the site if it fails 3 times, You will need to send an email to the Oracle Certification Secretariat to request confirmation. `` In addition, it can take up to a week for Pearson VUE account information to be reflected in the CertView system. This means that you will not be able to authenticate your CertView for the first time after you apply for the exam. For some people, this causes CertView initial authentication to fail three times. Therefore, it is recommended that you apply for the exam at least one week before the exam. (By the way, you can take the test even if you have not completed the initial authentication of CertView. However, you cannot check the result.)
All you need to take the exam is two identity verification documents. Identification type Have your identity verification documents ready on this page.
When you arrive at the test center, there is a simple procedure. ・ Sign the consent form for the exam ・ Presentation of identity verification documents ·photography It is a flow like. If you arrive 15 minutes before the start of the test, you can afford it. You cannot bring your own personal belongings such as watches and drinks into the examination room, so leave them in the locker in the reception room.
About 30 minutes after the test is completed, you will receive an email stating that you can check the test results on CertView. CertView can also be viewed on your smartphone.
By the way, if you pass, you will receive about 4 such emails.
The period was one month, and I was working full-time, so I think I spent two to five hours studying a day. I remember there were waves depending on the day.
I was mainly studying in Kuromoto. Or rather, I haven't seen anything other than Kuromoto.

Points to recommend Kuromoto
For the time being, I saw a collection of questions called Shiramoto just before the exam, but I don't remember how useful it was ...
Black book chapters 1-9 1st lap: At this point, is the understanding level about 10%? To be honest, it doesn't make sense. 2nd lap I solved it while looking closely at the commentary. I don't know yet. 3rd lap: After 3 laps, the problems that can be solved and the problems that cannot be solved become clear.
** At the end of the third lap, I will finally solve the mock exam at the end of the chapter. ** **
Mock test ① 1st lap 40% correct answer rate I was shocked and lost motivation. (2 weeks before the test) Mock test (2) 1st lap, correct answer rate 47%, passing 65% or more, so there is still more.
** Anyway, take the time to read the commentary carefully and go to the second lap. ** **
Mock test ① Second lap, correct answer rate 66%, I can't feel at all relieved. (1 week before the test) Mock test (2) 2nd lap, correct answer rate 75%, I have a little hope.
** From here to the exam, we will continue to solve the end-of-chapter questions. ** **
Mock test ① 3rd lap, correct answer rate 75% Mock test ② 3rd lap Correct answer rate 87% Mock test ① 4th lap, correct answer rate 85% Mock test ② 4th lap, correct answer rate 90% Mock test ① 5th lap, correct answer rate 90% Mock test ② 5th lap, correct answer rate 95% (the day before the test)
** Here, I will go around the end of the chapter question of Shiramoto and take the exam. ** **
I passed with a correct answer rate of 80%. The correct answer rate for successful applicants is not very high ^^;
I was surprised that many of the exam questions were similar to Kuromoto's mock exam. Or rather, there were some questions about exact match.
So, just solve the black book mock exam, read the commentary carefully, I think the best way to study is to deepen your understanding.
