Since the 816 exam is being cancelled, am I also in danger or the 817 exam still continues?
PS.: I'm from an older version of the OCP hence the upgrade.
As far as I know, Oracle has no plans at this time to cancel the 1Z0-817, so you're safe. They only retired the 815/816 exams.

I'm a certified Java Programmer (OCPJP 6) and I'm currently preparing for my Java 8 exam.
I'm using the Oracle Certification guide : Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 8 Programmer Exam 1Z0-809 that my friend and I bought from Amazon.
Initially my plan was to upgrade from Java 6 to 8 with this exam : 1Z0-813 but I couldn't find the material to prepare for it so then I settled for : 1Z0-813 exam guide.
I planned to finish the book and target the topics that are covered in the upgrade exam but now I'm thinking maybe the style is not the same with these 2 exams and I may not get the best of the upgrade exam from this exam guide.
My question is : will I be able to prepare thoroughly for the upgrade exam : 1Z0-813 using this study guide or should I just write the 1Z0-813 exam?
