I think you should take the 816 exam. It is one exam and gets you certified faster.

You can use an OCP 8 book to study. Note that my book (Sybex) has an appendix for the topics that appear on the 813 and not the 809,

Please consider whether you need to sit an additional exam at all. If you are getting up to date job experience, do you need a certificate to prove it?

I have recently learn and read that so many thing has been changed in Java and I wanted to upgrade myself and I always feel that certification push me to learn seriously. Hence thinking to upgrade myself. Also planning for spring certification, to learn spring framework.

Thank you

Hi Skumar

My situation is similar as I completed my SCJP for SE 5 in 2006. You might take it for a reference.

I decided to take 1Z0-813 exam because I could acquire an OCP by passing only 1 exam (tho it's for Java SE 8). It's up to my decision whether to further upgrade to OCP Java 11 in the future, but at least I'm already an OCP in this moment. In addition, I prefer an upgrade exam since I could focus on new features instead of having to revise and prepare for the exam on every topic, including the very basic ones, from scratch.

In contrast, if I took 1Z0-815 & 1Z0-816 approach, I would have to pass both exams to become an OCP. However, if your purpose is to revise every topic (as you acquired your SCJP in year 2000, which I believe is for Java SE 4 or earlier, some basic features like enum and generic were not included), it might be better for you to take this approach.

As a reminder, 1Z0-813 is retiring in Feb 2020. If it is your option, be quick to start studying. Also, you have to make sure your SCJP qualification appears in Oracle CertView (as a pre-requisite of the upgrade exam) or otherwise, you won't be certified after passing the upgrade exam. It might need some work with the Oracle support, which I could further share my experience if you're interested.

Wish you great sucess on your certification upgrade!

1. Login Oracle CertView. Create an Oracle account if you don't have one.
2. You will be asked to provide an Oracle Testing ID in PearsonVUE. If you don't have one, follow the guide to create one in PearsonVUE. It takes a few days for PearsonVUE to generate an Oracle testing ID for your account.
3. Login Oracle CertView and enter your Oracle Testing ID. Your Oracle account is now linked to your PearsonVUE account.
4. Probably you can't find your SCJP in your certification history. Now, open the Support page and you will be redirected to a list of FAQ.
5. Expand any of them, and click "Log Ticket" button.
6. Fill in the support form to ask for displaying your SCJP in the certification history. Provide as much information of your SCJP as possible. (I even scanned my hardcopy SCJP certificate and upload with the support form)
7. A support log is now created. You will receive email notification upon any reply from the Oracle support team. They will guide you for the ongoing steps.

It took me about 1 week to have my SCJP displayed in CertView. During the process you will be contacting Oracle support team and PearsonVUE back and forth. Oracle support team is helpful and efficient, so don't worry.

I am scjp certified

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Thank you


817 is the upgrade exam. For that one, you have to pass ocjp6/7 or 8.

However, you can take the 816 with any OCA level cert. So OCA 8 -> OCP 11 (exam 816) is allowed.
