did a detailed mapping (by objective #) on this site's wiki (like I did for the OCA and the Java 7 exam.) It's also editable by anyone who has an account here.

The first () is an accidentally missed function name, or the no argument operator of a lambda expression? The oracle exam page also has it the same way.

Oracle sent an email with a possibility to get a free exam voucher for Java SE 8 Programmer II beta exam.

The beta originally had an end date of the end of this month and (very) recently got extended to June 13th. It's possible the testing centers don't know about it yet.
Sierra Bates and Robson don't mention row sets and transactions on page 813, only result sets. Go through the list of objectives on the Oracle website and check carefully.
