Hi Author,

I am planning to go for java certification .I do not have the knowledge of Lambda expressions. Is this book useful for the preparation of the test ? I have no idea whether the exam includes Lambdas.

Thanks
Shiva

Hi Shiva,

Related certification exams (Oracle Certified Professional Java Programmer II for Java 8) cover lambda functions and Streams. You can check the exam topics here http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=5001&get_params=p_exam_id:1Z0-809

Hi Shiva

I'm certain that if you had read and understood Mastering Lambdas you would be fully equipped to answer the Java certification questions relating to lambdas and streams. In fact, I'm sure it would take you a good deal further: it's intended to enable a working programmer to use lambdas and streams effectively in his or her daily practice. That takes more knowledge than you'll need to pass the certification exam!

Regards
Maurice
