Does the study guide provide much help if you are looking to take the "Upgrade to Java SE 8 Programmer (1Z1-810)" exam?

[repost] We did not review or consider 1Z0-810 when creating out book.

Robert,
The 810 exam is the upgrade to the OCP 8. It includes full on treatment of functional programming, not just lambdas, and many new APIs. It's also not an OCA exam so I'd be shocked if any OCA book covered it.

There isn't an exam to upgrade to the OCA 8.

I wanted to ask this question haha!

Is there some chapters in the guide, that cover some 810 exam topics, that can be read separately of other OCA8 chapters?

I assume you could/should read these 2 chapters:
  • Chapter 10: Programming with the Date and Time API
  • Chapter 11: Understanding Lambda Expressions

  • But I would be surprised if the coverage in these chapters is enough to pass the upgrade to OCPJP8 exam as for this exam you'll need to know much more advanced topics than for the OCAJP8 exam.
