Hello Jeanne and Scott,

Really psyzed for the chance to ask you a question:
I have used your book to prepare for the OCA 8 exam (1Z0-808) and have followed all instructions/exam tips; exam is scheduled for next month.
Once I am done with that should I be going for OCA 11 (1Z0-815) and then OCP 11 or is it a more natural transition to do the OCP 8 and then take the upgrade exam to OCP 11?
I am inclined to do the latter since I can then demonstrate to potential employers that I am upgrading my knowledge from Java 8 to 11...

Context: I am a novice programmer with limited coding experience.

Thanks a ton for any/all insights in this regard.
Nachiket.

Nachiket,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

I think the best path is to take the OCP 8 next. It gets you the professional cert the fastest and has study materials that exist now.
