Morning

I'm wondering, in your mind, are there any major/large/overhaul revisions to already existing sections between the 7 and 8 guides?

Thank you for you time and your willingness to be here and answer these questions.

No, nothing major. Lambdas improves many of the APIs, but from what you may study for the Java 7 space, the '7' coverage moving to the 8 exams will be pretty much be the same.

Thank you for your question,
Robert

I guess the section about interfaces was subject to some major changes, because of the introduction of static and default methods to interfaces. Other new topics (like lambdas and date/time API) will result in a brand new chapter in the study guide.
