I took the 1Z0-815 exam a few months back and 1Z0-816 exam this week and pleased to report I am now Java OCP 11 Certified!

I typed up some impressions on the blog  My Experience taking the new Java SE 11 Programmer II 1Z0-816 Exam

Fun fact: I walked into the 1Z0-815 2 days after it was announced, no studying.  I was 'surprised'.  This time I spent a fair amount of time studying and reviewing the new material.  Finished in about 90 minutes, with the rest of the time to review.  Studying paid off, as I appeared to miss only a handful of questions.

We're done with the 1Z0-815 book (on its way to print!), and I'm quite confident the 1Z0-816 book will contain everything you need to pass this book or the 1Z0-817 ugprade exam.  A lot of material to cover though!

I "took one for the team" taking the 1Z0-815 exam first... she took the 1Z0-816 first this time.  That said, I think it was the 1Z0-815 I should have studied more for.  It wasn't that it was hard (although it was) as I was just expecting it to be on the level of the 1Z0-808 exam, which it certainly was not!

To put it another way... For Java 8, the first exam was a lot easier than the second exam.  For Java 11, they balanced them so they are equally as difficult, by moving some of the hard material to the first exam.
