Any real issue reading the SE8 version on the side while studying for SE11 exams? I see the SE11 version on line, and it contains Modules which is not in SE8, but I like having the book in my hands and don't see a SE11 JVM Spec book for sale.

It should be mostly fine. However, there are differences in features that already exist. For example, the spec for interfaces has changed a good bit.  (ex: static methods). So you have to be aware of what changed in Java 9/10/11 to go this route.

Have static methods changed since Java8? I know modules, var, and private interface methods have been added since Java8, however.

By the way: what is the point in going through the JVM spec for the exam? I can understand having a look at the JLS (=Java® Language Specification) to clarify something, but not the JVM spec.
Don't buy any books: download them here.
