There's actually a promo this week for our new OCP 8 certification book, in which you could win a copy. The OCP 8 book covers material for the full exam (1Z0-809) as well as both upgrade exams (1Z0-810 and 1Z0-813). We included a list objectives per chapter and how they match up to each exam. The book also includes access to 3 online mock exams to test your skills.
As part of studying, we recommend reading some of the new sections of lambdas and streams multiple times, as the new OCP 8 exams use them heavily. If you took the OCP 7 exam, you'll likely find the NIO.2 stuff a lot easier as they removed FileVisitor, DirectoryStream, and WatchService from all but the 1Z0-813 exam, and replaced them with stream methods to walk the file system. They also removed a lot of the Thread requirements, while focusing more on the Concurrent API.
Thanks for the quick reply.
Sure, I shall try to win that copy so that I can prepare for 1Z0-810 exam.
This book will take time to be available in India .. so . if I can win this book.. it will be a really good bonus for my preparation.
