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?

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.

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 well, outdated already.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.
