Hi Everyone..

last week I passed my OCA java 8 Certification exam!!

I majorly relied on  OCP: Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808 by Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff.

and Enthuware test prep app for mock test. I would recommend to use this app as it really prepares you for the test.


Next Goal...

now i have started preparing for my OCP Java 8 exam and would like to know which is the best book to refer :-
OCP: Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 8 Programmer II Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-809 by Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff  or  Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 8 Programmer Exam 1Z0-809: A Comprehensive OCPJP 8 Certification Guide by S.G. Ganesh, Hari Kiran Kumar, & Tushar Sharma.

Any suggestions??

many thanks!!

Hi shivika sharma,

Heartily Congratulations to you    . It's a great achievement. In my opinion both books are good. OCPJP8 II by Sybex has 3 final practice tests which helps to test your knowledge. Follow this link to decide yourself          OCPJP8Books

Hope it helps !

I'm not offering a suggestion because I'm clearly biased. But did you like our OCA book? If so, the OCP one is written in the same style so you'd like it too.
