The formal SCJP exam code:310-065 has been changed to Oracle IZO-851. I have been preparing for SCJP 310-065 from K&B. Now i am confused about the syllabus of the exam. Does OCPJP cover same topics as previous SCJP or it have changed? Should i continue my preparation with the same book or i have to buy new book for the new version of exam?
help needed!

Hi Astha, the exam objectives are almost the same. The objectives have changed slightly from the book like serialization, wait-notify topics are no longer on the exam. But if you prepare from the book you will not face any issues in the exam. Just complete the book, do some mock exams and you'll surely succeed...
