Happy Book Birthday! New OCP 11 Book Now Shipping!

Jeanne and I are thrilled to announce the release of our new Java 11 OCP Programmer II Book! It’s been a challenging road, writing and editing a book in the middle of a global pandemic, and we’re excited the print book is available for sale and finally shipping! The Kindle/digital version is available too!

Whether you’re studying for the 1Z0-816 Programmer II Exam or the 1Z0-817 Upgrade Exam, or just enjoy finding out about new Java topics, this book contains it all. We pride ourselves in presenting lambda expressions, streams, concurrency, custom annotations, I/O and NIO.2, JDBC, security, and more in fun and refreshing ways. We want our readers to enjoy learning about a topic just as much as we enjoyed writing about it. Finally, we believe that becoming certified makes you a more well-rounded developer and helps to grow your career with potential employers.

Our last book sold out pretty quickly, so get your copy today!

Our new Java 11 book comes out next month!

Many of our readers have been asking when our next book is coming out for the OCP Java 11 Programmer II 1Z0-816 Exam. Given the worldwide pandemic, it did not launch when we expected it to, but we have good news to share. We spoke with the publisher and it is expected to be released next month! If you are interested, you should probably preorder now, as our last book was sold out for over a month!

But wait, there’s more! Due to the delays we had time to “sneak in” an Appendix for those taking the OCP Java 11 Upgrade 1Z0-817 Exam! So, whether you’re taking the Programmer II or Upgrade Exam, this book has you covered for Java 11.

Full disclosure: Due to the continuing pandemic, it is certainly possible the book could be delayed further. What we have now is the most up-to-date information available from the publisher. If this changes, we will let you know.

50% off All Oracle and Java Exams!

Making a New Year’s resolution to get Java certified? For this month only (expires 12/31/2019), Oracle is offering 50% off all digital training and exam vouchers. This means if you want to get Java (or any other Oracle certification), you can do it for half the price! Better yet, the vouchers are good for 6 months from date of purchase. Why wait till the prices go up?

Need help? Our new book for the Java 11 1Z0-815 exam just went on sale last month! Jeanne and I offer a wide variety of books for Java 8 certifications including the Java 8 OCA 1Z0-808 exam or the Java 8 OCP 1Z0-809 exam, or if you’re taking both we offer a Java 8 Certification Kit and a Practice Questions book.

The first step to getting certified is making the decision to get certified! Then, you purchase a study guide and draw up a study plan. For example, you could decide to read one chapter a week. Finally, you start taking practice exams to determine what topics you need to study more. And since the vouchers expire in 6 months, you have a nice incentive to not give up!
