Hi, I'm new to Java Ranch!

I'm studying with Mala Gupta's book for 1Z0-803 exam and I have already made the first and second mock exam of Enthuware.

But this evening I've seen the presence of OCAJP8 and, after this, I'm not sure to take 1z0-803 instead of this exam..

Which is your opinion? Is really better take 1Z0-808?
If yes, How long can occupy the study of new objectives?

Hi Biagio D'Ange,

First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

This thread has exactly the same question and contains some interesting opinions about which exam to take.

In short: there were 2 reasons why I adviced going for the OCAJP7 exam (1Z0-803). First of all, no available resources to study/prepare. And secondly, if you wanted to take the OCPJP exam after passing the OCAJP one, you had to go for 1Z0-803 because the OCPJP8 wasn't avaiilable yet. But currently there are already a few resources available to prepare for this certification (see this thread for an overview). And the OCPJP8 beta exam will be released (very) soon, so I would definitely opt for the OCAJP8 exam (1Z0-808).

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

Many thanks Roel!

I think that the time of study is more less because some objectives are the same.. it's correct?

Yes indeed! Here you'll find the OCA 8 exam objectives and here you'll find a mapping between the exam objectives of both OCA 7 and 8 exams.
