Since you have not mentioned the author, I am not sure which one exactly are you referring to (they have similar titles) but I can tell you that they are all good. Each has its own style of explaining the concepts. You may want to read sample chapters to see which one you like the most.

1Z0-815 exam has a new topic about Modules: Understanding Modules
You can check my free study guide for 1Z0-817 which also covers this objective: http://java.boot.by/ocpjd11-upgrade-guide/
[UPD] You will find in my guide detailed description of this 1Z0-815 topic too: Use local variable type inference

My Java knowledge: I am familiar with the basics of Java, such as the architecture, variables, datatypes, loops and OOPS concepts. But I don't have enough knowledge to crack the exam. I haven't programmed or done any projects on Java though.
Any advice is much appreciated.
The course or the book will not be sufficient for any of the two versions of the Java certification exam (1Z0-808 or 1Z0-815) but irrespective of which version you decide to go for, it would be good to complete the course if it focuses on the basics and if the instructor is helping you get started with hands on coding.
From Herbert Schildt's 'Java - The Complete Reference' book, you can skip chapters 11 (Multithreading), 12, 13, 20 and all chapters after 20. There are a few things in these chapters that are required for the 1Z0-815 exam but you can learn them from other sources. It covers all the topics that are required for the 815 exam but since it does not focus on the certification, you will not know about all the tricks and gotchas you may encounter in the exam. For that, you can use Enthuware's 1Z0-815 mock exams. You may also want to go through this article about the new Java 11 part 1 exam.
Another approach, of course, is to forget the Java 11 exam and go for the Java 8 exam (1Z0-808) instead. Several books and mock exams are available for this exam.
