Jeanne and I wanted to say how thankful we are to our all of our readers of our first two books. Without your invaluable feedback and positive reviews, we never would have been offered this opportunity to expand our OCA and OCP subject matter. We promise to make this next book our best yet!
We are expecting to ship the book in March 2017. Stay tuned for additional news about the book!
Jeanne and I thrilled to announce that our publisher, Wiley Sybex, has released our two Java 8 Study Guides together as a Java 8 Certification Kit! The Java 8 Certification Kit is now shipping! The Java 8 Certification Kit includes the following two books and is a 30% saving over buying them individually:
Between the two books, the Java 8 Certification Kit includes a total of:
More than 350 Review Questions
40 Assessment Questions to evaluate your skill level
6 Practice Exams (3 for OCA 8, 3 for OCP 8) totaling more than 300 questions
More than 450 Flash Cards
2 Searchable Glossaries
If you want to become an Oracle Certified Professional, the Java 8 Certification Kit contains everything you need to complete the 1Z0-808 Exam and the 1Z0-809 Exam!
If you already hold a Java OCP 7 certification, the Java 8 Certification Kit will also help you pass the 1Z0-810 Exam. Finally, if you hold a Oracle or Sun Certification for Java 6 or older, the Java 8 Certification Kit provides a good refresher for everything you missed in the OCA 8 exam and contains an additional appendix to help you pass the 1Z0-813 Exam.
Less than one week after the Kindle version of our OCP book became available, the print copy of the OCP book is now shipping from Amazon! Our OCP 8 book, nearly twice the size of our previous OCA 8 book, contains everything you need to know to pass the OCP 8 certification exam. Even if you are not planning to take the exam, the book is a great introduction for seasoned developers to all of the new features in Java 8.
Jeanne and I wanted to take a moment and thank all of readers who’ve sent us positive feedback about our books. We’re glad that you’re excited, as we worked really hard to make this book even better than our last!
We’re also excited to learn that since the OCP book’s release, Amazon has consistently ranked it the “#1 Newly Released Java Programming Book”, as well as the “#1 Oracle Certification Book” (rankings updated hourly). This would not have been possible without the help of all of our supporters! Thanks again and happy reading!
