The last Java programmer cert I completed was SCJP 1.4. I'm planning to start studying for the Java 8 upgrade exam (1Z0-813). Can you please confirm the following:
1) The best book currently for the exam is Jeanne's and Scott's "OCP: Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 8 Programmer II Study Guide". Are there others I can compare this with?
2) Does this book teach you the method signatures which we should memorise (such as the JDBC-related methods) ?
3) Small concern I have about this book is the amount of errata. Is it really that bad to a point where it will distract me? I don't mind referring the errata page before a chapter. But in general is the above book easy to read? It has less pages than the typical K&B books for such an exam.
4) Anything else I should know before I purchase the book? Any discount offers
, or second edition planned soon?
