Hey guys,

which of these two oracle exams would be easier to pass? 1Z0-809 (Java SE 8 professional) or the 1Z0-810 (Java SE 8 professional UPGRADE)?

I´ve already the Java SE 7 professional certificate, so what do you think, which of these two certificates are easier or make more sense?
The Java SE 8 professional will contains a broad content of topics- the Java SE 8 upgrade will only contains the newer topics...

if you already ocjp 7 upgrade to 8 has more sense because after that you will get certificate.
If you just pass ocjp 8 for get some paper you mast pass oca 8.
If you don't need paper - just want to study, why you want go to certification?

If you go for the original, you need to pass both OCA and OCP exams.

Having OCPJP7 already, upgrade is the path to go.
