For 1Z0-817, I'm using the OCP java11 complete study guide by Jeanne and Scott

Does the exam require to read the complete book?
In part1 only 2 nd 11 chapters are marked as requirement for the exam. How about the new concepts of lambda expression then?

Apart from the review questions, do we have any practice exams for chapter wise?

Reading the book and attempting the practice exams are sufficient to pass the exam?

Please reply to all the questions

What new concepts? λs were introduced 6½ years ago. If you are sitting the upgrade exam from Java8, it is presumed you already know about λs from Java8.

I think it's your task to check 1Z0-817 exam objectives and refer if a particular chapter is required for the exam.

Disclaimer: I don't have the book, most likely the book already mentions which is in scope of 817 exam, but you would better double check too.

Campbell: The upgrade can be taken by folks certified in Java 6, 7 or 8. So it is certainly reasonable for the reader to be new to lambdas.

Mikalai: We did that for our readers. THe intro has a mapping that covers what chapters of the book they have to read for the 817.


Mohana: No. You don't have to read the entire book. The intro (page liii-iv maps the 817 objectives to chapters in the book. Lambdas are covered in chapter 12 (pages 520-527). They are also covered in part 1. But reading chapter 12 is sufficient to learn what you need for the upgrade exam as far as lambdas go.

Thanks for your reply Jeanne.
As you have mentioned, I'm taking this upgrade exam after SCJP6 and 4 yrs career break..

Can you clarify the below questions too:

1) Review questions are available after every chapter. Can you suggest some other practice exams chapterwise?

2) Below are the portions mentioned. Will a candidate be able to clear the exam perfectly if they read these chapters and practice with the 4 question papers???

Part1- Chapter 2 - Java building blocks
Chapter 11 - Modules
Part2
Java Fundamentals
Generics and collections
Functional programming
Assertions,
Modular applications
Concurrency
NIO.2

I wouldn't say perfectly. Getting a perfect score is *really* hard. Make your goal to pass comfortably.

Assertions aren't on the 817. And only the parallel streams part of concurrency is.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
