This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I took the beta exam back in September and I'm still waiting for the score so I'm not sure if I passed.
From what I can remember it was very different with the questions weighted heavily towards annotations (not really a surprise) and aysynchronous web applications, the rest of the questions were pretty much what I saw in the EE5 version.
