Hi dear folks, could you help me finding the answer of the following questions?

1) Can I enter OCP 17 exam without any prerequisite? Such as the person must pass the OCA exam.

2) Is there any study guide or a book for this exam version? What if I want to prepare in advance, if there is no any newly study guide? What would you advise?


Thank you,
Soner

I have just found out the following quote from

OCP Oracle Certified Professional ®
Java SE 17 Developer Study Guide Exam 1Z0-­829
Scott Selikoff Jeanne Boyarsky


For Java 17, Oracle has simplified things. Becoming an Oracle Certified Professional now requires passing only one exam, not two, and there are no Java 17 upgrade exams. Regardless of the previous certifications you hold, everyone takes the same, single Java 17 exam to become an Oracle Certified Professional.

It answers the first question.

The book from which the quote has been excerpted seems a pretty good source to prepare for the examination. Surely, you can add any source advised.

If you didn't already realize, Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff are very valuable and well-respected staff members of this very website. I can strongly recommend the study guide that you have already found. If you have questions about the exam or the study guide, Jeanne is regularly available in this forum to answer them.

As I've never prepared for the OCP, sadly I can't recommend any other study materials for you, other than the official Oracle Java tutorials.

Congratulations Jeanne Boyarsky ! Your hard work and timely delivery is really appreciated. So proud of you, I can see your book at Amazon Kindle's store immediately after Oracle removed "Comming Soon!" text for this certification.

Soner,

There is no prior certification or training requirements for this certification.
Oracle offering single certification since Java 11 (Oracle Certified Professional for Java 11 or Java 17).
The syllabus is very huge with just 50 questions, so you require more preparation to cover each and every exam objective.
MyExamCloud offers 30+ mock exams, objective tests and a random test for your preparation. You can take free test at https://www.myexamcloud.com/onlineexam/1z0-829-java-se-17-developer-exam-practice-tests.course or download App from Apple's store or Google's play store.

Good luck for your exam preparation.

I did read a post a couple of days ago as to more exam questions, in which it is said Java 11’s example questions can be solved and no ready example exam questions for 17. Your shared website seems too helpful. Thank you.

I think Bert Bates is preparing a study guide, but I don't think it is ready yet. I don't know whether Mala Gupta has a study guide, but I personally don't quite click with her style.
I wouldn't use the Java™ Tutorials myself because they haven't been updated since Java8.

I don't think Bert is. According to Amazon, he's finishing up Head First Java. Given the Java 17 exam is out, it seems safe to say he doesn't have a Java 11 study guide. I don't know if he is plans to resume for Java 17. Mala has a 815 study guide, but not a 816 one. (Remember that Java 11 exam is the combined 815/816).

Yes, you are right; I was confusing HFJ with the study guide. Sorry.
