Hi everyone ,

i recently discovered coderanch and felt excited to be one of its family member. I work as a programmer and have knowledge of Java but not as an expert. I want to improve my knowledge and crown it with certification. I need a roadmap to do this. Should i start by preparing to the Java SE 8 Programmer I 1Z0-808 and  then to the  Java SE 8 Programmer II 1Z0-809 or Will it be more beneficial to master the language  with some books (Hilberts Java The Complete Reference ) or training videos(udemy Tim Buchalka) and then prepare for certification? I m not at zero level but not feel comfortable to say that yeah i know Java. I opened a new page with the motto It is not too late for anything. Can 1Z0-808 and Z0-809 still be a good start for beginners or should i start with directly with new one 1Z0-829. Does 1Z0-829 need any pre certificate to take that exam ?

Help me guys. I would like to open a new page in my Java world , step by step I want to put it on. Thank you for all your interest.

Welcome to the Ranch

Don't be so specific. Don't make your goal to pass a particular exam, but to learn. Write lots of applications, and show them to somebody who will discuss them with you. Example: here. Put them in a Git repository in case you need to show them to somebody else.
I would prefer a book like Cay Horstmann's two‑volume Core Java set. I am always wary about tutorials and videos because I have seen so many which are not up to scratch, and so few which are any good.

You may not become part of Java, but Java may become part of you.

What makes Java ,  "Java" is its millions of users. If it is a part of our life, we are also a part of it , like a family member.. Thank you for your replies , time to conquer this world.
 
Yes, of course, and I accept that blame. In fact, i covet that blame. As does this tiny ad:
