Hi, friend i am a final year collage student and soon i have to go for job, so i want to be a oracle certified java professional before joining any organization, but i am still confused about which exam i have to face to get OCJP certificated.currently i am study about 1Z0-808 & 1Zo-809 study guide. so can anybody will suggest me which exam would be best for me.
Exam 809 (Java 8 Programmer II) has 808 (Java 8 Programmer I) as a pre-req. Note that no books are out for Exam 809 yet. So if you are planning on taking both exams this year, you should take the Java 6 or 7 versions of the exam.

To become an Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 8 Programmer you'll have to pass two exams: the OCA 8 exam (1Z0-808) and the OCP 8 exam (1Z0-809). The first one is an entry-level exam covering Java and OO basics. The latter one is the advanced exam covering a bunch of advanced and complex topics like JDBC, threads, concurrency, generics, collections, file nio, and so on.
As you are a collega student with limited experience in Java, I suggest you should focus and prepare for the OCA 8 exam first. Once you have passed this exam, you'll be more experienced and you can start preparing for the OCP 8 exam.
Hope it helps!
PS. It's exactly the same to become an Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 7 Programmer. You'll need to pass the OCA 7 exam (1Z0-803) and the OCP 7 exam (1Z0-804). Here you can find the differences between the exam objectives of OCA 7 and OCA 8.
