Today I passed 1Z0-810 (Upgrade Java SE 7 to Java SE 8 OCP Programmer exam) with 79% marks (though I feel it is less then I expected).

I did 2 months (Jun & July) of hard study for achieving this with my regular office hours. I work 5 days a weeks but sometimes due to release schedule I also had to work over weekends and late nights so it was really challenging to find time for studying regularly.

Things I studied for preparing for exam were:
