I have read your book for OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I. It is indeed a very good book and I could understand all java basics concepts, reading it.
I am yet to appear for OCA Java SE 8 exam and I hope to gain good knowledge of functional programming basics required for this exam from your new book.

I'm really looking forward to get my hands on OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Certification Guide and take another shot on a OCA exam, to get a better score. What's funny is that i got a better score on my OCP than on OCA exam, probably because the second time I had the help of a great study material, Mala's book . Thanks for the great work.
