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!
In terms of content and completeness for the exam, the book explains the Streams API, Functional Programming, Generics, the Collections API, and Advanced OOP more than enough, which is good, given that the exam mostly focuses on those topics. As a bonus, the book explains two additional design patterns that aren't part of the exam (Factories and Builders). However, it was a bit lacking in the smaller parts of the exam like JDBC, and I will admit that I lost a few points because of it, even if not much.
My biggest problem with this book is the provided testing environment, which feels a little mediocre in practice; the questions and answers rarely but consistently suffer from tiny mistakes that could've been solved by testing the code samples or using better wording, and the explanations are good but could sometimes provide more details, especially if you prefer to learn primarily by practicing with the tests rather than reading the book. Another con is that your right to the tests expires after a year, which personally didn't bother me at all, but maybe someone else could need more time.
Overall, this book is worth its price and you'll pass the OCP exam with a good but probably not perfect score if you decide to rely only on it.
The book covers all the areas that are being tested. The exam is difficult so try to study as much as possible.
As others have indicated, there are some code bugs in the book, but if you are typing and compiling the examples, you will figure out the correct code.
I used the book, I passed the exam. That is all I wanted so I will rate this book 5 stars as it fulfilled its role as a test prep book.
The only reason why I don't give this 5 stars it's because of the moderate amount of typos-errors found through the book, in this world elephant != eLephant and it could led to minor misconception, though is nothing major and I'm sure it will be fixed sometime in a new revision.
Also is worth to mention that only going through this book will not be enough for passing the exam, a little bit of extra training with simulators is a must!
Apart from using this book, I also read online articles for certain topics like lambda expressions, streams, functional programming for in-depth understanding.
Chapter tests are too complex to answer and feels fun while reading. However, the three mock exams are again too tough but it felt discouraging to me. I would suggest trying a different mock exam outside this book.

So I honestly cannot recommend this as a primary book for studying for the exam, it's good as a second book but you have to master the extra skill of navigating the errata while you read it.
