    Alex,

    I recommend that you 1) check the Oracle Certification Community http://bit.ly/Lt5vhm for recommendations and 2) check Oracle Press http://bit.ly/URFuwt. I doubt Oracle Press has an exam guide yet as this exam is so new, but there might be some Java SE 8 books that would be helpful.

    Regards,
