Hi

I already passed ocjp6 some decade ago but wanted to test my knowledge with the new Java certification. Since I already passed Java 6 certification so I thought if I should take 817 or 819. Which one would require less preparation.

Thanks,
Ashish

There is a similar question but about from Java 8 to Java 11. https://coderanch.com/t/739623/certification/OCP-Java-SE-Developer-Practice
Also, Scott shared a post with a recommendation about the Upgrade exam https://www.selikoff.net/2020/10/06/taking-the-1z0-819-exam-study-everything-and-watch-the-clock-part-2-of-2/

I would personally take 1Z0-817, it seems less stressful 8-)

On the other hand, if your goal is to learn as many as possible new Java 11 areas -- take 1Z0-819, but be prepared for a tough exam
