Hi Guys,

I passed the OCJP 6 exam back in 2012. I was hoping to upgrade my certification to 9.

1. Are there any books that you can recommend for this?
2. If not, what is the best book to go from 6 to 8?

Thanks,
g

Java 9 was released but it hasn't came yet for the Oracle Exam not even Beta exam, so at this point of time there is no path from Java 6- Java 9 but ya there is a path from Java 6-Java 8. I think you are talking about this exam-> Hava a look at this page. I think you are talking about this exam. So there is no direct book for this exam(i guess because there are no books on Amazon) but you have to study from the Java SE 8 by Jeanne Boyarsky which is available on Amazon(before buying first see that your contents are matching or not)

There's no exam for Java 9 yet. (And won't be for some time. In fact, I suspect there won't be a new exam until Java 18.9 comes out).

For Java 8, make sure the book includes the material for the upgrade exam. There are a few topics on the upgrade exam that are not on the OCP. We cover these in an appendix in the Sybex book.
