I'm planning to take OCP Java 8 certification..passed scjp6 certification in 2014..

Can I take 1Z0-809 directly without 1Z0-808?

Java 11 upgrade exam seems to be more difficult.

You can take the exams in any order but you won't get the certification title without both.  Oracle did have upgrade exams for Java 8 but retired them earlier this year.  I'd recommend moving on to Java 11 at this point, with the new 1Z0-819.  It's a single exam and will get you the latest certification title.

Can you suggest books for 1Z0-819 then.
Is it very hard to pursue with long yrs of break in career?

Our new Java 11 Complete Study Guide contains everything you need to know for the 1Z0-819.   There's a book promo for it this week in this forum in fact!

Taking a cert requires a decent amount of preparation.  I recommend writing a study plan first, such as doing a chapter a week (or 2 chapters a week if you're in a hurry).  As long as you plan it out, it's certainly obtainable.
 
You showed up just in time for the waffles! And this tiny ad:
