if you plan pass OCPJP at autumn go to 1Z0-808.
if you plan pass OCPJP before summer go 1Z0-803.
if you plan pass OCPJP at summer than read topic from here: Upgrade from Java SE 7 OCP to Java SE 8 OCP and think about this topics + topic from 1Z0-804 i must know to pass OCPJP 8 (may be some original topic 1Z0-804 wold be erased) - i think this much information to study (if you are beginner) so you just reschedule exam on autumn or later and now prepare also to 1Z0-808.
reiterate this is my own opinion.

Thank you. I would like to fo for 1Z0-808 but I hope to go for programmer before summer. So I will go for 1Z0-803.

In this case I advice to go for 1Z0-808. I don't think that the preparation is sufficient. I mean, if you want get 1Z0-808 because you wanna know topics about Java 8 you need to study that.
These are the argument that are in 1Z0-808 and not in 1Z0-803:
  • Create and manipulate calendar data using classes from java.time.LocalDateTime, java.time.LocalDate, java.time.LocalTime, java.time.format.DateTimeFormatter, java.time.Period
  • Write a simple Lambda expression that consumes a Lambda Predicate expression

    First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

    It all depends on your future plans. If you are interested in taking the OCPJP exam on short notice, then you should definitely go with OCPJP7 (as the 8 version isn't announced yet). More (valuable) info can be found here and here.

    Hope it helps! Good luck!
    Kind regards,

    Thank you for the welcome and quickly answer. You fully answered my questions
    I will try 1Z0-803!

    Thank you again,
    Hi everyone,
    that's my question. I'm almost ready for the exam 1Z0-803, but I don't know if I should go for the 1Z0-808 or not. I'm having this doubt because I don't yet see programmer exam for Java 8. So, what is your advice? Is it possible go for 1Z0-804 (Programmer Java 7) if I get 1Z0-808 (Associate Java 8)?

    Thank you,
