I'm a bit confused about the requirements now. Am I right, or in order to take the 1Z0-819 I need to do (and pass) the Programmer I exam first? If I follow the upgrade path, that should not be necessary, right?
There are no requirements to take the 1Z0-819 exam. To take the 1Z0-817 upgrade exam, you need to hold a previous OCP certification. Since you are also OCA8 certified, you can even take the 1Z0-816 exam while it's still around to become certified, per this document: https://www.oracle.com/a/ocom/docs/dc/ou-5021-java-se11-faq-4.pdf
There are other upgrade paths, but since you have an OCPA and OCP8 cert title you have a lot of choices.

If you want to take the 1Z0-819 exam, though, you should either pick up the Complete Study Guide, or both Programmer I and Programmer II books. Since the CSG is 1200+ pages, though, I tend to find the two smaller books easier to read from. Both have the same material in them.

Too bad you have to give up some of your vacation time to get this done.

Yes, I used the Enthuware simulator and the Sybex simulator (just once), but actually the exam was much easier than the mocked ones.

All the best for the next one. OCP is a lot tougher than OCA, so don't be misled by the simplicity of OCA
