Hi

I would like to get the OCA JAVA 8 certification, but there are 2 ( even more ) books suggested on different web sites. I don't know which one to buy in order to start studying.

1) OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808 (Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff)

2) OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide (Exam 1Z0-808) (Oracle Press) (Edward Finegan and Robert Liguori)

Which one would you recommend the best?

Best regards
Hada

Hi Hada Garcia,

First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

In the OcajpFaq (besides other very useful information) and this thread you'll find an overview of all available resources (study guides, mock exams, video courses,...) to thorougly prepare yourself for the certification exam. And on the OcajpWallOfFame you'll find plenty of (links to) experiences from other ranchers (including resources they have used). So it can be useful to determine which resources are useful (and which are not).

On Amazon you can view/read the reviews of the customers as well. And using the Look Inside function you can have a look inside the book as well to see if you like the writing style for example. And often you'll find a (free) sample chapter of the book on the publisher's website as well, so you can read a whole chapter to determine if you like the study guide.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel
