Hello,

I have a JAVA 6 certification. Should I skip the JAVA 7 certifications and go straight to the JAVA 8 certifications?
Also, are there any JAVA 8 mocking exams tools ?

Thank you,
Mihai

It depends on your goal. The Java 8 upgrade exam doesn't cover the Java 7 topics. So if you want to learn about JDBC, NIO, Concurrency, etc, you'd miss that by skipping Java 7.

This post lists all your possible options. And you have a few to choose from

Just checked the Enthuware website, doesn't mention OCAJP8 mock exams. So I think besides the mock exams provided in a study guide (like the one of Jeanne & Scott), there are no other mock exams available.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel
