Hi Bert, Kathy and Elisabeth,

first of all, thank you!

How a Java 8 certification can increase my chances with a new job?

I think it really various from locale to locale. My general sense is that a certification can help if you don't have a lot of on-the-job experience and it can also be a tie-breaker when two job candidates have similar CVs.

And, we really believe that studying for, and passing the exam will make you a better programmer. That way, once you get a job, you'll do better at it.

I think simply studying for the exam, even without sitting it, will make you a better programmer. I learnt lots from that book.

I agree with Campbell; studying for the exam will force you to learn more, so even if the exam certification isn't actually *required* for a job, you'll be better prepared!
