exams, the OCAJP 8 exam with code 1Z0–808 and the OCPJP8 exam with code 1Z0–809. You will not be a Java SE 8 certified programmer if you just
pass the OCAJP8 exam.
In order to prepare for both these exams, you need to choose a
good study guide and a good mock exam simulator, apart from writing
programs on daily basis.
Since there are a lot of demand for Java 8 certified professionals across the
world, it seems to be a good opportunity to change your career path by
learning Java 8, if you are doing some boring IT work and wants to
become an application developer.
Since it’s almost 3 years sine the launch of Java 8, 18th March 2014,
both OCAJP8 and OCPJP8 are now established exam. You will find a lot of books, courses, tutorials, and mock questions on the internet for preparing these two exams.
In order to create a plan and then work on that plan to get Java 8 certification, the first step is to choose a good book or study guide. In this article, I am going to share some of the best OCAJP8 and OCPJP8 books you can choose from.
The study guides not only covers exam topic in full but also provides exam tips related to every topic.
The combination of a Study guide and mock exam is the best to crack any Java certification in limited time.

tailored for certification need.

This is another good book to prepare for OCA or Oracle Certified Associate
Java SE 8 Programmer I certification i.e. exam code 1Z0–808. The book is
a complete study guide for Java 8 OCA certification and covers every
single exam topic.
The book starts with an assessment test, which is really nice way to gauge where do you stand in terms of your knowledge of Java 8 and OCA exam objective.
it also explains why correct answers are correct and why incorrect
answers are wrong, which will help you to build your concepts and avoid
Oracle and Java, which means you can be rest-assured that it covers
every single detail of 1Z0–808 Exam objectives.
Professional Java SE 8 Programmer Exam or 1Z0–809. You will find a lot
of small, practical code examples which is really important to truly
understand Java 8 concepts.
The book not only covers each and every exam topic of 1Z0–809 but also present new features of Java 8 in easy to understand manner, with proper exam tips.
This is the 2nd part of by Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff guide for Java
8 Certification. The first guide covers OCA exam and this guide covers
OCP exam or 1Z0–809 exam, but I found this book is also a great resource

and OCAPJP8 (1Z0–809) examination.
Some resources are free and you have to buy some resources, but given the actual exam cost is 245 USD or 10,100 INR, it worth spending some more money to prepare well.
It’s better than taking the retake of the exam.
That’s all about some of the best books to prepare for OCAJP 8 and OCPJP 8 certification. As I said, it’s not enough to just pass OCAJP8 or 1Z0–808 exam if you aspire to become a Java SE 8 certified programmer.
Though, there are some other ways to become Java SE 8 Certified Programmer like if you already hold a Java SE 7 certification then you can give the 1Z0–810 exam to become a certified Java SE 8 programmer.
Alternatively, if you are an SCJP 6, SCPJP6 or SCPJ 1.4 programmer or hold any Java certifications for lower versions, you can give Java SE 8 Upgrade exam to become a certified Java 8 developer.
All the best.
