I have 1+ year of developer experience in core java. If I do OCJP/OCPJP certification will it help me getting good hike or on new job/ interviews. Also please let me know which certification should I do, OCJP/OCJP ? Also please let me know whether I should do OCJP 7 or 8 . Thank you in advance.

You should ask your hiring manager

Seriously, you'll still have to pass an interview, but I believe that when resumes are thick on the ground, many managers will look for easy ways to distinguish the more likely from the less likely and a certification is a reasonable way to do that. In my view, even bothering to show up to be measured by someone else's standards says something good about a potential new-hire (many folks seem to be a bit unwilling to be found wanting!)

I would suggest, that today, you should go with Java 8, rather than 7, though if you don't mind potentially taking it twice to get "up to date", the Java 7 cert is entirely valid of course. Many companies are still working with Java 7.

HTH,
Simon

Thank you Simon for this valuable information. I have another query. Can I directly sit for OCJP 7/8 or before that I need to pass any other exams ?

You must take Programmer 1 (Associate) first, then you can take Programmer 2 (Professional). No other prerequisites, I believe.

Good luck!

This may sound little stupid, but are Associate and programmer two different certifications? Can I sit for both of these together ? Could you please send me some informative links. Thanks very much again.

They are two steps on a ladder. You must take the Programmer I (associate) first,

I think my doubt is clear now. If I am not wrong I have to pass 1Z0-808(Programmer I) first and then 1Z0-809(Programmer II).
Thank you once again

I have another query. For both of these I have to register separately ? That means registration fees will be Rs. 9604 (1Z0-808) + Rs. 9604 (1Z0-809) i.e. total of Rs. 19208 ?

Yes. Though you'll have to pass the first one before you can sign up for the second.
