Functional Interfaces to Study for 1z0-815

The BS book only gives 4 functional interfaces to study for 1z0-815 : Predicate, Supplier, Consumer and Comparator. Does it mean other interfaces are not in 1z0-815? The actual syllabus does not mention any of them. So a little confused here

As far as stream APIs are concerned, I'm pretty sure knowledge of the Function interface would be require (and maybe the primitive stream APIs like IntFunction). Other than that you should know the rules regarding the function interfaces. From my experience with certification exams (which is 10 years old at this point), it doesn't force you to memorize a lot of APIs. So there might be no need to memorize stuff like BiFunction etc (I might be wrong). In general if you practice writing a lot of code, you'll not have to memorize any API, they'll come naturally to you.

What does it say on the Oracle exam website?

Souvik : You also have to know Comparator for the 815.  Everything else is on the 816. Don't worry. You get to learn a load of functional interfaces including Function for the 816 .

Ankit: Since you took the exam, Oracle split it into two parts. Souvik is asking about the easier part. The exam has also changed significantly. You absolutely have to memorize the functional interface APIs for the 809 and 816 exams. Even with Java 5/6, you had to memorize String/ArrayList API.

Thanks Jeanne for the clarification. I know the exam was split into Associate and Programmer, I didn't notice this one is the associate exam code

Agreed there were some API related questions on SCJP 6 as well, but very basic APIs which came naturally after some practice. But clearly I'm not on touch with the recent exam format
