I would give this book 3.5 if I could. While I consider this a decent preparation material, the book is teeming with typos and errors. The full list of errors could be found here: [...]That being said, I still think the authors did a great job - it just looks that they were in a bit of a hurry to publish it, since it's the first book dedicated to this exam. I'm pretty sure that once those errors are fixed, this will be a very good book.
Also, I was taking 1Z0-813 exam (upgrade from Java 6). This book partially covers the exam topics in the appendix (about 40 pages), but some topics are missing, for example PathMatcher, or default/static interfaces (I guess it assumes that most readers passed the OCA exam and know this topic).
I would recommend this book once the next edition is published.

HASH(0xa67c6954) out of 5 stars PASSED WITH 86%! Dec 24 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had been waiting for this book for awhile, since there aren't any other good OCP 8 study guides on the market. When I finally got it, I read it cover-to-cover then took the 1Z0-809 exam and scored an 86%. The OCP 8 exam itself was *definitely* a lot harder than the OCA 8 exam, and had numerous subtleties. A question that appeared to be about threads might really be about polymorphism/method overriding, but I passed by more than 20% so I'm happy. The book was the sole reason I passed, especially the Review questions and online Exams. While the book's questions were tough, some of the exam questions I encountered were equally as difficult, so I felt very prepared.

Also... I did not study with any other online exam websites, as I found many of the OCP 8 practice exam websites to be buggy and use old/recycled/retired-style exam questions from OCP 7.

Definitely need to know streams, method references, JDBC well to pass. Thanks Jeanne & Scott! Another certification for my resume!

HASH(0xa82ccdc4) out of 5 stars Passed OCP 8 with 84%! Jan. 7 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
First off, the OCP 8 exam is so much harder than the OCA 8! I came in with very little knowledge of Java 8. This was my first time using lambdas and streams in any programming language. I was pleased with how this book presented the material, often in a humorous way. The book came with 3 online exams, which were difficult but made me feel quite prepared for the exam.

I studied solely using this book and passed the exam by nearly 20 points. I will warn people studying.. the exam is very nitpicky. The questions often include very methods that almost no one I know uses. In other words, you should probably read this book twice before taking the exam, as it is not easy.

By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is similar in style to the OCA book from the same authors. I found this book very easy to read with lots of examples and tips for what to focus on for the exam. Being an animal lover, I liked all the animal examples especially the appearance of a wolf in Chapter 4 (howlll). Using everyday objects and animals to relate examples made it easier to process and understand. I also liked the tips about programming. OCP seems a harder exam than OCA, so it will take more time, but this book I think would be well worth using.

HASH(0xa7621d44) out of 5 stars Top book for OCPJP8!! April 15 2016
By Amandeep Ghai - Published on
Format: Paperback
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff. The books OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I & OCP Java SE8 Programmer II helped me pass OCAJP8 exam with score of 90% score & OCPJP8 with a score of 81%. I did not try any other material for these exams. The best thing about the books is that they thoroughly cover all the exam topics with some good-practice notes/hints.

I bought the book to prepare for the Java 8 update exam from Java 6. The book explains very well the concepts and gives tricky examples that may appear on the exam. Moreover, on the Java Ranch Moose forum, if you ask any question, Jeanne replies within hours. Thanks the authors for the great job.
