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.

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!
