Any real issue reading the SE8 version on the side while studying for SE11 exams? I see the SE11 version on line, and it contains Modules which is not in SE8, but I like having the book in my hands and don't see a SE11 JVM Spec book for sale.

It should be mostly fine. However, there are differences in features that already exist. For example, the spec for interfaces has changed a good bit. (ex: static methods). So you have to be aware of what changed in Java 9/10/11 to go this route.
By the way: what is the point in going through the JVM spec for the exam? I can understand having a look at the JLS (=Java® Language Specification) to clarify something, but not the JVM spec.

Yes, of course, and I accept that blame. In fact, i covet that blame. As does this tiny ad:
