Hello every one,
I am beginner in java and am planning to write certification in two months. While booking for the test, I saw so many in the list.


/// SE5/6 Associate
Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 7 Programmer
Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 8 Programmer///

which would be the best option among these?
And I have Kathy Sierra Java SE7 OCA/OCP book. Is it good for SE8 test ?

Thanks in advance for the help.

I wouldn't count on it. Although I could pass my SCJP 6 exam using the Java 5.0 book, that was because Java 6 didn't add much except a few extra classes. Java 7 added several language features and extended the API quite a bit as well (NIO.2), and Java 8 added more. If you use the Java 7 book you will know nothing about lambdas, streams, java.time and many more things.

Go to java 8. But do it after required preparation.
Also try mock test before you go to real exam.
There is a chance that you overestimate you level, mock test will help measure your level.
