Hi Talha Hashmi,

First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

It all depends what's important to you (e.g. money, available resources,...). In this thread you'll find an overview of all possible paths (OCPJP6, OCAJP7+OCPJP7 or OCAJP8+OCPJP8) you could take to become an OCPJP certified Java programmer. And this thread also contains some valuable information about which OCA version to choose. So I would advice to read these threads and if you still have questions or doubts, just hit the reply button and let us know!

But if you don't have any specific reasons, you should just go with OCAJP8. In the OcajpFaq (besides other very useful information) and this thread you'll find an overview of all available resources (study guides, mock exams,...) to thorougly prepare yourself for the certification exam. And on the OcajpWallOfFame you'll find plenty of (links to) experiences from other ranchers (including resources they have used). So it can be useful to determine which resources are useful (and which are not).

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

Hi Tahla,

The best choice for preparation (at least for me) is the following:

Book Material:
For pure OCAJP 8 OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808

Practice Tests
Best Value for Money Enthuware Practice Tests

After the above you may enrich your knowledge by reading other books though validated for lower java versions but most topics are common.
Validated against Java 7 (OCAJP 7)
Part I is for OCA OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide (Exams 1Z0-803 & 1Z0-804)
OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I Certification Guide: Prepare for the 1ZO-803 exam

Currently there's only one study guide for OCA 8 available on the market, so it's slim pickings Luckily the available study guide gets good reviews on Amazon. You can always get an OCA7 study guide and use some other resources to cover the additional OCA8 exam objectives.

All the available study guides are listed in this thread.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel
