What you'll learn
- Obtain the knowledge of the advanced topics that form questions in the 1Z0-819 exam
- Master the tricky syntax and other unusual code tricks that appear in the exam
- Obtain the skills and confident to pass Oracle's Java SE 11 1Z0-819 exam in style
- Receive the confidence to sit the exam knowing you have everything needed to pass it.
- Exposure to the Java programming language
- Preferably have completed all or part of my Java Masterclass here on Udemy (or another Java course)
- Desirable to have completed some or all of my Java Masterclass
- Or be a professional programmer with Java experience
- Have a desire to get Java certified and earn more money!
Becoming Java certified is a great way to help improve your career options with more job opportunities and more pay.
That's because Oracle's Java certification program, unlike many other certifications out there, has real value in the industry. One of the main reasons is that it's an official Oracle certification, but second, the exam is quite difficult to pass.
Employers see programmers who are Java certified as more valuable than programmers who are not certified. So it's totally worth getting Java certified to take advantage of this.
This course has been designed to pass on the exact knowledge you need to pass Oracle's 1Z0-819 exam.
So what exam does this course cover?
This course focuses on the Java SE 11, 1Z0-819 exam, from Oracle. It's Part 1 of a 2-course series. It's highly recommended that you complete Part 2 of my 1Z0-819 exam course after completing this one.
Oracle helpfully publishes the complete list of topics that questions in the exam come from. I've taken extreme care to ensure that a full 100% of the material you need to know, in order to pass the exam is covered in either this course or Part 2.
There are only two courses you need to get Java certified, this one, and my Part 2.
I won't waste your time on any Java features that are not going to come up as a question on the exam.
Why Get Certified in Java 11, aren't there newer versions available?
Java 11 is designated as the LTS or Long Term Support version of Java - it's going to be supported by Oracle and JDK vendors until at least 2026, unlike Java 9, Java 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, etc all of which are no longer supported by Oracle.
Large companies have large codebases, and it takes them a long time to upgrade that code to new versions of Java - for years Java 8 was the main version used by companies, and with the release of Java 11, and Oracle's commitment to supporting it for many years as well as them designating it as the long term support version, this means that the majority of the industry will be moving, or already have moved to Java 11. Particularly now that Java 8 support is ending soon.
Oracle does not have a certification program for Java 9, 10, 12, or Java 13, etc. This is by design. Because Java 11 is Oracle's long term supported version of Java. For this reason, Java 11 is the version of Java you need to become certified in. And this course will help you achieve that.
What's the difference between this course and your Part 2 1Z0-819 exam course?
Firstly, the courses have completely different content, there is pretty much no overlap of content in the two courses. Think of this course as the "Core Java" concepts, and my Part 2 course, as the "Advanced" content. Both courses are targeted for the 1Z0-819 exam and help you to pass it.
Why are there two courses for the 1Z0-819 exam?
In October 2020, Oracle decided to move from their old exams, the 1Z0-815 and 1Z0-816 to a single exam, the 1Z0-819.
The thing is, the 1Z0-819 exam, still targets the exact same topics that were in the old 1Z0-815 and 1Z0-816 exams, minus a few topics that have removed.
Previously you needed to pass both exams to get Java certified. Now, you only need to pass the 1Z0-819 exam. So that's a bonus for you.
This Part 1 course originally targeted the 1Z0-815 exam, and my other just released Part 2 course, was originally going to target the 1Z0-816 exam. What I've done now is updated and renamed both courses, and ensured they are both targeting the material you need to pass the new 1Z0-819.
Hopefully, that makes sense as to why you need to take two courses.
Do I really need to take a "Java exam course" to pass the exam?
Being completely upfront, it is possible to pass the exam without studying a specific exam course like this one. But it's not easy. Keep in mind that the exam does not just test your knowledge of Java, but actively tries to trip you up by asking questions that sometimes use obscure, rarely used syntax that you may never have come across before. The sorts of things that most Java courses or textbooks will never teach you.
This course shows you all the standard Java stuff you need to know, as well as this more obscure stuff to ensure you really are ready to pass the exam.
Who is this course suitable for?
If you have been through at least some of my Java Masterclass on Udemy, or another Java course and/or have some professional programming experience in Java or another programming language then this course is for you.
This course is definitely NOT for beginner programmers. If you are a beginner, you will struggle with this course. In that case, grab my Java Masterclass and go through all or a significant amount of that course before attempting this one.
You don't teach Java in this course?
That's right, I don't teach you Java as such. The course assumes you know Java, and are looking for the knowledge to pass the exam. It's a subtle but important distinction.
And remember, the course only focuses on topics that may come up as a question in the 1Z0-819 exam.
Yes, you will learn a ton of new things by going through this course. But I do assume you know Java, and won't waste your time by having you watch me type in code.
Rather, I paste in a code snippet, explain its purpose, and execute it. This is the best way to pass on the required knowledge to me. As an aside, the
It's designed to give you the exact information and skills you need to pass Oracle's Java 11 1Z0-819 exam.
If you already have Java 7 or Java 8 certification and want to upgrade your skills to Java 11, this is for you.
The great thing about the course is that it's relatively short (at least compared to my almost 80 hour Java Masterclass), so it's great if you need to cram before taking the exam.
What this course is not.
This course is not a "rebadged" Java 8 Certification course - the 1Z0-819, Java 11 certification is a lot different from the 1Z0-808 (Java 8) exam (for starters it covers many features not included in Java 8, a few of which are listed above).
If you only have Java 8 experience it's going to be pretty hard for you to pass the Java 11 exam. You need to be up to speed with Java 11 features (as well as the older stuff) and that's what you will learn in this course.
I created this course, from scratch, in Java 11 to give you the tools you need to pass Oracle's 1Z0-819 exam (formally the 1Z0-815 and 1Z0-816 exams).

Who this course is for:
- Java Students or Professional developers who want an easy way to prepare for Oracles Java 11 1Z0-819 exam
Tim's been a professional software developer for close to 40 years. During his career, he has worked for major companies such as Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, and Saab.
His video courses are used to train developers in major companies such as Mercedes-Benz, Paypal, VW, Pitney Bowes, IBM, and T-Mobile just to name a few (via the Udemy for Business program).
What makes Tim unique is his professional programming career - many instructors have never programmed professionally, let alone had a distinguished professional development career like Tim.
Tim has trained over 1.28 million students how to program, way more than a typical IT Professor at a college does in a lifetime.
In fact, Tim's courses are often purchased by students struggling to get through college programming courses.
"I am learning a lot about Java very quickly. I wish my college courses worked this way, they drag the same amount of material out over months." - Thomas Neal
"I love this guy. I'm in school for java right now at a local college and I bought this course hoping it would help clarify the fuzzy areas of my coursework. There's no comparison. Every time I get lost in my textbook, I watch a couple more of these videos and I'm right back on track. He explains everything so perfectly. It sinks right in." - Kristen Andreani
"Tim is a great instructor, I have more courses from him and all are great. This one really helped me with my understanding of Java from the very beginnings. In fact, I was able to find a job as Java developer with the knowledge gained from this course, so I basically owe Mr. Buchalka my career" - Daniel KubÃ¡nyi
Tim's mission is simple: to make a difference in your life by helping you to become a software developer. Tim does that through his Java, Python, C#, Spring Framework, and Android development courses.
When Tim started programming over thirty-five years ago, there was no online video training.
There was no "easy" way to learn. The Internet, in its current form, didn't exist, and as a result, Tim couldn't "Google" for help, or watch videos on Youtube.
After learning the hard way, Tim was determined to become the best teacher he could, and to make his training as painless as possible, so that you, or anyone else with the desire to become a software developer, could become one.
In between doing that, Tim spent the best part of those years as a professional software developer writing applications in Java and a variety of other languages. In addition, he spent many years with J2EE (as it was then known), now known as Java Enterprise Edition (JEE), designing and developing enterprise applications.
Tim is relatively unique, in that he is a professional, experienced software developer who also has exceptional teaching skills.
Many instructors have no work experience in the field. Make sure the person you trust with your education is a real expert with substantial previous professional experience.
The bottom line for you is, when taking any of Tim's courses, is that you will learn the right way to do things from an expert, in the shortest possible amount of time.
Tim's Java, Android, and Python courses, here on Udemy are of the highest quality as reviewed by his students. Ten's of thousands of students, just like you, have taken his classes, thousands have left glowing reviews, and many have gone on to full-time jobs, or consulting/freelancing opportunities after completing one of his courses.
Tim recently placed in the top ten Udemy instructors as voted for by his students and Udemy themselves.
What does all of this mean for you?
You can have full confidence that Tim's courses are of exceptional quality, and that he can teach you to become a software developer if you have the desire to become one.
Are you ready to start? You can get started today. No previous experience is necessary.
