Hello Hanumant, congratulations on the book!

I know a couple of my colleagues who are waiting for a certification guide - they will be glad to hear that your book is released. I have passed OCA8/OCP8 a couple of years ago and I would like to upgrade to Java 11. I have doubts about how to prepare for the exam should I just read some topics that I haven't used in practice or read the certification guide for Java 11. Concerning my doubts I have a couple of questions:

1) Do you have plans to make a book for those who are planning to upgrade from OCP8 to OCP11, or OCP Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 11 would be fine for upgrade exam?
2) Will I need some other resource to study such topics like "Modular Application" because I haven't used them in practice, or your book covers all topics well enough and reading it would be enough?

Thanks in advance!

No. You should write practice code using the concepts asked about in the exam, and you should probably also sit some practice questions.

Why do you feel the need to sit a new cert exam? Has your employer told you to sit it (in which case ask them to pay for the book and exam ‍)? Are lots of employers asking for OPC11? If you passed OCP8 in 2015, won't your four years of experience since then count for more than any number of exams?

No, the book is for OCP Java 11 Part 1 exam. It is not suitable for the Part 2 or the upgrade exams.
 
Can't .... do .... plaid .... So I did this tiny ad instead:
Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
