Hello Jeanne & Scott!

Congratulations on your "Java SE 11 Programmer I Study Guide" !

I recently passed OCA 8 with the help of your excellent books (have the set, OCA/OCP for SE 8).

I notice there are three books on Amazon:
[1]OCP Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 11 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-815 1st Edition  (November 26th, 2019, 608 pages)
[2]OCP Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 11 Developer Complete Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-815 and Exam 1Z0-816 1st Edition  (July 8th, 2020, 1032 pages)
[3]OCP Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 11 Programmer II Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-816 2nd Edition  (June 23th, 2020, 720 pages)

Is the second book (Java SE 11 Developer) a combination of the first and third book? I notice it has less pages than the two combined.

Also, how can the third book be a 2nd edition?

I'll definitely buy the Programmer I/II Study Guides (hope the draw bot does not understand this).

First off, yes, like our OCP 8 certification kit, the OCP 11 certification kit is the two books packaged together.  You can buy the first book now and take the exam, or wait for the second to be released as part of the set.

All of these books are first editions.  Initially, there was some discussion that they would be second editions of our Java 8 books but when the exam structure changed drastically, we decided it was best to write a lot more material.  I’ll see if the publisher can update the metadata for this to be more precise.
