I passed the Upgrade OCP Java SE 6, 7, 8 to Java SE 11 Developer (1Z0-817) exam! My score was 88%.

The only material I used to study was Enthuware's practice exams, which were recently released. Of course, I used the Java 11 documentation as well.

There are no books for this exam. I only studied for a couple of days. I have 7 years of Java programming experience in the business world. I got my OCP Java SE 8 Programmer certification in 2015.

I updated the OCPJP Wall of Fame table and added the OCP Java 11 Developer certification. Looks like I am the first one.

Congratulations!!
Please do share your thoughts about the exam, such as topics you found tough, general standard of questions, any question that you were surprised to see, did the mock exams cover evertything, etc.

You are the first to post about this exam and your feedback will be very helpful for others.

Yes, I think you are the first to pass a Java11 exam, as PA said.

There were lots of method chaining in the answers to questions related to streams.

I found the Enthuware mock exams harder than the actual exam. The questions about modules on the exam were very straightforward.

If you are not sure which answers are the correct ones, especially for questions that ask for two choices, eliminate the most obvious wrong answers.

Know default methods and static methods in interfaces very well. Know when to use var.

Read the code carefully. (Personally, I just jumped to the question and read the answers before looking at the code, and that worked for me.)

I did not feel pressured at all during the exam. I have been programming in Java 8 full-time since 2015, so I was really familiar with Java 8 features (streams, lambda, etc.). If you've been programming in Java 8 for a long time and understand how to use the new Java 9, 10, and 11 features, you'd feel comfortable during the exam.
