Breaking news from JNN (Java News Network): A new culprit has been added to the list of Ten Most Wanted Books for Java SE 8 OCA Programmer I Exam.


Reliable sources report that it has been sighted at these places:
https://www.amazon.com/Programmers-Guide-Oracle-Certified-Associate/dp/0132930218?ie=UTF8&qid=1456433279&ref_=sr_1_2&s=books&sr=1-2
http://www.informit.com/store/programmers-guide-to-java-se-8-oracle-certified-associate-9780132930215

The same sources also reports that it is actually based at this website, where ample sample content has been stashed and where errata will be exposed.
http://www.ii.uib.no/~khalid/ocajp8

Apparently the book provides some insights never before covered in an expose of this kind.
Some revelations will make the Java Community Process look tame in comparison, we are informed.
Readers are asked to report their findings on CodeRanch, so that outrageous claims about the book can be substantiated.

Prospective bounty hunters are asked to keep an eye out for the upcoming book promo to be scheduled on CodeRanch.

JNN will continue to cover this story as it unfolds.

That's awesome news to hear. Congratulations Khalid! It must be an amazing feeling to finally have the printed book after many months of hard work.

Looking forward to the book promotion. That will probably be a great week and hopefully this forum will be buzzing with some great questions.

Kind regards,
Roel

PS. The name of the technical reviewer of this study guide sounds very familiar to me. I have the feeling I have already met (and talked to) this guy, but I don't have a clue where it was

I have added the errata overview page to the OcajpFaq and to the list of the study books errata at the top of the OCAJP forum.
