Hi All,
       I have cleared 1Z0-813 exam upgrading from Java6 to Java8. Initially I thought of waiting for Java9 exam, but 1Z0-813 is real worth in learning all the concepts related to Streams. Exam is little tough. So many questions almost 60-70% on Streams.  Too many programs and I was literally writing many programs with pen & paper whenever the answer contains compilation error or runtime exception. I have prepared only for a month as I am already using Java8 in current project and I want to take advantage (35% off before Dec 31st) of writing another exam by this year end. So I have restricted myself to finish this one quickly.

Preparations:
1. Enthuware Oracle Certified Professional - Upgrade To Java SE 8 From SE 6 Programmer Exam  --- Helped a lot.
2. OCP: Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 8 Programmer II Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-809

Suggestions:
1. Practice Enthuware test exams multiple times..
2. Stream and Collectors -- need to know method syntax and types like where we need to use BinaryOperator vs BiFunction
3. Ofcourse - Coderanch forum - but not many people posted regarding 1Z0-813.

Best of luck for everyone.
