Announcing the New Java 17 1Z0-829 Certification Exam and Study Guides!

Scott and Jeanne are thrilled to announce that Oracle has finally announced the new Java 17 1Z0-829 exam! Having worked with Oracle to create the objectives, we’ve been anxiously waiting to let all of our readers know that we already have two books for the new exam well underway:

In fact, you can preorder the Java 17 Complete Study Guide now!

The exam is similar to the Java 11 1Z0-819 that preceded it. The following are some of the key changes Oracle has made to the new exam:

  • Sealed Classes and Records have been added
  • Switch Expressions have been added
  • Pattern Matching has been added
  • Text Blocks have been added
  • Math API is on the exam
  • Date/Time API is back on the exam (previously on the Java 8 exam)
  • Annotations and Security have been removed

We’ll post more details soon about the exam including when you can sign up to take it, as Oracle releases the information!

While Oracle restructured the 1Z0-815 and 1Z0-816 Exams into the 1Z0-819 Exam, the material is almost identical (see this post for more details), making the Java 11 Complete Study Guide along with our new Java 11 Practice Tests Book the best source of material for learning everything you need to become a Java 11 Certified Professional!

Like our previous books, we will post any updates or notes on this blog’s Java 11 Practice Tests Book page.
