That page is the exam objectives. So yes, those are the topics to study. Note that Oracle often gives high level topics. You need to study the topics mentioned in a good amount of depth.

Buying a study guide helps save time and focus on the right parts along with giving practice questions. (Disclaimer: I wrote a study guide for this exam.)

Yes, the exam will cover nothing else but these topics (exam objectives). Bear in mind that Oracle can change these exam objectives at any point. So it's recommended to vist that page now and then to look for changes. Or even better: check the OCAJP forum, if a change has occured, there probably will be a (sticky) topic about it.

Regarding the study materials, that's completely up to you. You can do it the hard way: use and gather resources online to study from (e.g. the (free) Oracle tutorials, the (hard to read) JLS, this forum,...). Or you could use a study guide which gather all the information for you and mostly add some practice questions (and probably even practice exams) to test your knowledge. Currently 1 paperback study guide is available for OCAJP8 (more info on Amazon). People often use a seperate mock exam software (like Enthuware) as well.

Happy studying!
Kind regards,
Roel
