Hi Scott and Jeanne,

I'm about to take the OCA 8 (1Z0-808) and I intend to continue my path on the certifications and java knowledge in general. I know that the 809, the "OCP 8", still exists, but I read that it's possible to take the OCP 11-Unified (1Z0-819) straight away after 808. But, in a "knowledge aquiring" point of view, is it ok to just skip the 809 study material and go directly to 815/816 material (since there's no 819s specific material at the moment)? Will I be losing anything or I'll be just ok if I learn from the new Java 11 complete study guide?

Thank you for the attention and congratulations on publishing the books!

Pedro,
The 815/816 material *is* the 819 material. (minus a few topics). So yes, that is good material to use.

You can take the 819 after the 808. You can also take the 819 with no exam first. There's still an advantage to taking the 808 though as 1) you've studied 2) it gets you an OCA cert.

So yes, I'd recommend taking the 819 and not the 809
