Exam 809 (Java 8 Programmer II) has 808 (Java 8 Programmer I) as a pre-req. Note that no books are out for Exam 809 yet. So if you are planning on taking both exams this year, you should take the Java 6 or 7 versions of the exam.

Hi Abhijeet kumar srivastava,

First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

To become an Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 8 Programmer you'll have to pass two exams: the OCA 8 exam (1Z0-808) and the OCP 8 exam (1Z0-809). The first one is an entry-level exam covering Java and OO basics. The latter one is the advanced exam covering a bunch of advanced and complex topics like JDBC, threads, concurrency, generics, collections, file nio, and so on.
As you are a collega student with limited experience in Java, I suggest you should focus and prepare for the OCA 8 exam first. Once you have passed this exam, you'll be more experienced and you can start preparing for the OCP 8 exam.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

PS. It's exactly the same to become an Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 7 Programmer. You'll need to pass the OCA 7 exam (1Z0-803) and the OCP 7 exam (1Z0-804). Here you can find the differences between the exam objectives of OCA 7 and OCA 8.
