Passed 1Z0-810 with 88%.

Read Java 8 in Action and Mikalai Zaikin's notes.
For practice I solved Mikalai's quiz.

Did OK in every other topic except new Time API. I guess I wasn't very clear about the topic.

All the best to future aspirants!

Big Congrats Sudhanshu. I'm trying to take the OCA Java Programmer 8 SE exam sometime in April 2016. I hope that I'll pass with flying colours. Your thread is very inspiring.

Congrats Sudhanshu!

Is OCP 8 upgrade is any tougher than OCP 7 exam in general?

Also, I am kind of thinking which of the following two books to read for the OCP Java 8 upgrade exam:

a) Java 8 In Action
b) OCP Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 8 Programmer II Study Guide Exam 1Z0-809 by by Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff

Yes. The upgrade exam is the hardest of the exams.

b) OCP Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 8 Programmer II Study Guide Exam 1Z0-809 by by Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff


Keep in mind the former is not a cert book. You need a cert study guide, not just a general book on Java 8. You could of course get both .

HI,

passed 1Z0-810 few days ago. I would not say upgrade is harder than normal. Anyhow, for upgrade exam I only used

Mikalai Zaikin's notes
and
Enthuware package.

No other book. And of course, I compiled codes that I did not understand completely. Playing with the code helps a lot.
