You maybe could put readers into context how the preparation about OCA 8 and in particular the need of an advice about the book is related with prior certifications as Java 6... Professional... Anyway, where v7 gone?

Hi . I meant that

if I want to get  "Java SE 6 Programmer Certified Professional (retiring May 31, 2018) 1Z0-851" certificate, do l have to get any prior certificate .
Because to get  "Java SE 8 Programmer II 1Z0-809" certificate there is  "Prior Certification Requirements" which is must be  "Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 8 Programmer"

do I have to attend any prior for  "Java SE 6 Programmer Certified Professional (retiring May 31, 2018) 1Z0-851"  exam

What is wrong with Sybex? That appears to be a perfectly good answer to your original question.

That is right. Thanks

I used the Sybex Study Guide written by Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikof and using this book i passed the exam in one try. The book covers all the necessary topics and is written very clear. Next to the book you also get a lot of online questions to practice.

Best regards,

Thanks question is not about Sybex
Before l have made preparation for ocpjp6 .
You know very famous book K&B .
Some of topic from this book still can help me for OCA8?

And one more thing for ocpjp6 preparation .
Many experienced people were saying that K&B book is enough for ocpjp6. Now l figure out that there is no such enough single  book for OCA8. Am l right?

For getting  ocp8 certificate , before should l pass OCA8

Which book is the best for preparation of the OCA8.
I am expecting your advice.
Hi . i am making preparetion for OCPJP6 exam.
l have seen below sentence in Kathy Sierra book . which is about "AssertionError" ...
l couldnt figure out about meaning of "correct" and "legal" ...
Can anyone explane this two words.

Kathy Sierra book (About AssetionError)

If you see the word "appropriate" on the exam, do not mistake that for "legal."
         "Appropriate"always refers to the way in which something is supposed to be
   used, according to either the developers of the mechanism or best practices officially
 embraced(benimsemek) by Sun. If you see the word “correct” in the context of assertions,
 as in, “Line 3 is a correct use of assertions,” you should also assume that correct is referring to how
 assertions SHOULD be used rather than how they legally COULD be used.

What do you mean ?
You meant that if l make "Java SE 6 Programmer Certified Professional" exam does not include
"Develop code that makes use of assertions, and distinguish appropriate from inappropriate uses of assertions."

you meant l shouldnt study this topics
Kathy Sierra , Bert Bates  "SCJP Sun®  Certified Programmer for Java™ 6 Study Guide"  book is enough for preparation ???
I saw a page in oracle official web page.

This page is about "Java SE 6 Programmer Certified Professional" .

I want to learn two things .

One of them is ;

Is "Java SE 6 Programmer Certified Professional" and "OCPJP6" is same?

And my last question ;
If "Java SE 6 Programmer Certified Professional" and "OCPJP6" is same.
Can I still make preparetion for "OCPJP6" ?
Is "OCPJP6" axam still organized by Oracle ?
Thanks Viktor Logwin.
You are so kind...

You can go for the OCP 6 (1Z0-851) and then make an upgrade to OCP 8 (1Z0-813). The OCP 6 exam has 60 questions and 61% passing score. The upgrade exam has 60 questions and 63% passing score.

Or you can make the OCA 8 (1Z0-808) with 80 questions and 65% passing score and then make the OCP 8 (1Z0-809) with 85 questions and 65% passing score.

Both ways have 2 exams. The OCP 6 is... well, outdated already.

Is up to you.

Do I have to make OCP 8 (1Z0-813) exam after the OCP 6 (1Z0-851) exam.
is this way mandatory .
if l prefer only make OCP 6 (1Z0-851)  exam, after that may l take OCP 6 (1Z0-851) certificate

Tahnks for replyment
Anyone knows answer of my question
May l learn that still Oracle making OCPJP 6 exam.
Now can l attend to OCPJP 6 exam
