According to the website, Java SE 8 Programmer I certification is a prerequisite. Als there are topics mentioned in exam section. These topics are as follows:



I have a very good knowledge of java and i m pretty sure that i can clear OCJA 8SE certification which is a prerequisite. However i still need 2 months more before i can go for OCJP.
Is it that the question in the OCJA SE8 will be from above topics only or is it otherwise? I just want be sure!!!

I did not understand what exactly your question is, but let me try.

Yes, as of today, you need to do the OCA before the OCP.
What do you need two month for?

Buy your copy of the
OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide (Exams 1Z0-803 & 1Z0-804) (Certification Press)

Read it, best read it several times, make notes, and learn everything inside out you don't know.
Do all the mock exams thorughly until you reach close to a 100% in each question.
Then first you do the OCA and second the OCP.
You might also consider buying a Mock exam simulator, e.g. Wizlabs.

I have a link to this and some further information related to oracle Java certification on my blog:
OCA/OCP Certification

Hope this helps.

Let me put it this way. Are the questions that will appear in the OCAJP will be from the above topics And yes i have the material that yu have advised. I got it from the friend of mine, I m also referring to Java in a nutshell as well as the documentation and tutorial material available on java website.

According to the website


I don't know which website you are talking about. I assume you are talking about the Oracle website, in this case, probably yes.
Additionally, you write "I have all the material". Well that might sound stupid, but more often then not people think possessing something is actually doing the trick - including me and myself ;-).
Really, be honest to yourself. Read Kathy's book, read every line of it. I once read the advice that you would be ready if you had a book full of colored highlighting that would fall apart you would be ready.
I did that. I was there. I even bought a new version (updated from Java 5 to 6) and that one in the end was just as colored and falling apart.
I did all mock exams I could get my hands on, and all simulators. I passed all of them above 90% or so as far as I can remember.
I have actually even now recently bought version 7 of the now called OCA/OCP book you probably have, I didn't yet have the time to read it, however mainly I just wanted to own it.
I love Kathy's books. And you can trust her. Everything that is in the book you will need. Everything that is not in the book, you will not need.
At the time in 2008 when I did my SCJP, I didn't even waste any time looking on any Oracle pages. Trust Kathy. That's all you need!

Was that clear enough?

p.s.: Yes, I am in love with her books

I guess saying that i have all the material was stupid. I did studied her material but was hard to understand , so I started with the basic. I guess i will start reading her material

If the book is to though, you are to weak, sorry.

Start reading Head First Java then.

The exam is tough, the book condensed to the maximum. Make notes, read it several times.

Also, just thinking about it, my Free Java Beginner Video Course is based on all my knowledge I gained from Kathy's books and the certificate.
Whenever possible I go deep down into details which are also important for the certification. Might be helpful for you, too.

Nothing was never too tough for me, it was only hard because i didn't even read java from past 4 years, not a single word. That's why i had to brush up my skill with basics from beginners guide. But this was like month back. I have already finished the OCAJP part - 1 of Kathy. But then i do get the message you wanted to give. Right now i m on binge study kinda thing. And thanks for the video tutorials, i will go through it too.
