Hi

I am targeting Upgrade to Java SE 8 OCP ( Java SE 6 and all prior versions) - 1Z0-813 because I have already appeared for SCJP 5.0 in 2008.  I am having specific books for OCA 8 (IZ0-808) and OCP 8 (IZ0-809) exams. But I am not having a dedicated book for IZ0-813. Can you please refer a dedicated book and reference material for IZ0-813.

Thanks

These following books I have

1) OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808 By Jeanne
2) OCP: Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 8 Programmer II Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-809 By Jeanne

My questions are:

1. Does Upgrade to Java SE 8 OCP ( Java SE 6 and all prior versions) - 1Z0-813 exam need above 2 books to be studied.
2. No other books / reference required?
3. Does 1Z0-813 exam contains any Java 7 or earlier related questions.?

Thanks

No, just the OCP book. The Java 7/8 specific material in the OCA book not covered in the main part of the OCP book is reviewed in the "upgrade" appendix.

Depends how well you learn . Enthuware has more practice questions for $10. The OCP is hard, so you probably want to buy that too.

Yes. The book covers those topics too.

@Jeanne

I already started your OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide book for preparing IZ0-813 exam. But as per your response, I am assuming only OCP: Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 8 Programmer II Study Guide to be read thoroughly along with other few questions but not OCA book.

Am I correct in understanding your response? Thanks

Correct. While there are a handful of topics in the OCA book that are on the upgrade exam (sprinkled throughout the OCA book), we've covered those in appendix C of the OCP book. For example, the diamond operator.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
