I recently passed this exam. I was not aiming for a perfect score but instead wanted to fast forward to what has happened to Java after version 6 (and wow I was amazed by it) - so my aim was to just learn as much as I can while my 2 year old is asleep during nights. :P

I would like to thank Bert and Kathy for keeping the OCP certification book very much alive and interesting to read (totally worth the hard copy I brought from amazon). The last I read was when it was still with Sun (version 6 of jdk). The book still has its spark and this was my primary reference to pass the exam. I did not take any exam simulator, neither did I finish the exams that came with the book (Nit: CD ROMS are so 2013 :P).

For the upgrade exam it was heavy on Streams / Lambdas and Modularity. It was also very current with using streams - especially with var types, and with recent enhancements after jdk8. The book strengthened my fundamentals about the topic except Modularity. Since I am a big red employee, I got hold of the jdk 11 modularity training that Oracle provides:

https://education.oracle.com/java-se-exploiting-modularity-and-other-new-features/courP_8937

I highly recommend it to anyone (shameless plug) who wants to pursue the exam - it pretty much covers whatever gap is left between jdk 8 and 11... until B n K comes up with a more recent book ;)

Hi Harsha,

For some reason I thought your question was addressed to me, although you asked "Milalai" for advice.

I would recommend you to use some other study sources, for example, Code Ranch runs promotion now for "The Java Module System" book by Nicolai Parlog https://coderanch.com/t/715738/java/Nicolai-Parlog

Best regards,
Mikalai Zaikin

Harsha, there were no study guides specifically for upgrade exams, IIRC.
If you wish a guide specifically for an exam, there will be 1Z0-815 or 1Z0-816 books from Jeanne (but not for 1Z0-817)

Mikalai: Our 816 book is going to cover both 816 and 817. (We did the same thing for Java 8; covered the upgrade specific material in an appendix)

Hi Jeanne! Thank you for clarification.
