Hi

I am targeting Upgrade to Java SE 8 OCP ( Java SE 6 and all prior versions) - 1Z0-813 because I have already appeared for SCJP 5.0 in 2008.  I am having specific books for OCA 8 (IZ0-808) and OCP 8 (IZ0-809) exams. But I am not having a dedicated book for IZ0-813. Can you please refer a dedicated book and reference material for IZ0-813.

Thanks

These following books I have

1) OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808 By Jeanne
2) OCP: Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 8 Programmer II Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-809 By Jeanne

My questions are:

1. Does Upgrade to Java SE 8 OCP ( Java SE 6 and all prior versions) - 1Z0-813 exam need above 2 books to be studied.
2. No other books / reference required?
3. Does 1Z0-813 exam contains any Java 7 or earlier related questions.?

Thanks

No, just the OCP book. The Java 7/8 specific material in the OCA book not covered in the main part of the OCP book is reviewed in the "upgrade" appendix.

Depends how well you learn . Enthuware has more practice questions for $10. The OCP is hard, so you probably want to buy that too.

Yes. The book covers those topics too.

@Jeanne

I already started your OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide book for preparing IZ0-813 exam. But as per your response, I am assuming only OCP: Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 8 Programmer II Study Guide to be read thoroughly along with other few questions but not OCA book.

Am I correct in understanding your response? Thanks

Correct. While there are a handful of topics in the OCA book that are on the upgrade exam (sprinkled throughout the OCA book), we've covered those in appendix C of the OCP book. For example, the diamond operator.

Hi fellow ranchers !

Oracle website says that the Java 8 Upgrade exam (1Z0-813) will retire on Feb 2020 !

My question is that will the qualification will be still valid (using the title OCP8 Certified) after the exam retires?

Yes, the certification itself doesn't expire. You will always remain certified for the Java 8 platform.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
