Hi. My name is johnny. I'm new in this forum and I came here for some help.

I got ocp6 in 2009, and I'm planning to take the 1Z0-813(Upgrade from Java 6 to Java 8) next month.

I'm doing the whizlabs mock, but I found many topics on whizlabs that I didn't see on the OCP: Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 8 Programmer II Study Guide, jeanne boyarsky scott selikoff,

like: PathMatcher, map.compute, path.resolveSibling, ThreadLocalRandom, and go on.


Will I see these topics on the exam ?

Which is the best mock for 1Z0-813 ? whizlabs or enthuware ?


Thank you very much for your help.

Hi Johnny, welcome to JavaRanch.

Many mock exams cover stuff which is not covered in the exam. They probably do it probably to make it difficult so that you think it is the best mock exam

Best resource to check what is or is not on the exam is to check exam objectives. But if you come across any question which is not covered in the book, the extra knowledge won't hurt so probably briefly reading about the topic should be good for knowledge (if not the exam)...

The map compute methods are on pages 157-159 of our book.

As Ankit noted, most books and mock exams cover a few topics not on the exam. Those are the ones Whizlabs chose.

Some of those topics were in scope for the Java 7 OCP but not the upgrade. ThreadLocalRandom has never been on the exam.
