5.0 out of 5 stars It worked for me 28 Jan 2009
Format:Hardcover
The syllabus for the SCJP exam for Java 6 includes a huge amount of material, but this book covers the lot. The authors don't claim that it's a tutorial, and I must say that my own experience with other languages helped me a lot, but even so the authors do a great job of introducing their topics in a basic and simple way, then developing the discussion to a point where you are ready to tackle their sample exam questions (answers and explanations included) which will more than prepare you for the real exam. Apart from using Eclipse for writing code, this book was my only learning resource and I got 86% (pass mark 65%). Thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent study book 11 Mar 2009
Format:Hardcover
Has everything you need to pass the exam but beware of the only error I found on Pg. 583 (Using Maps) ((Dog)o).name == name is a reference comparison should read ((Dog)o).name.equals(name) to give the quiz answer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Useful book but shoddy Kindle conversion 26 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The quality of this book's conversion to the Kindle is really disappointing. Even a cursory proof-read would have quickly identified the numerous errors and formatting problems. For example text from previous paragraphs embedded in code samples, an earlier chunk of code repeated in the place of a class diagram, example code that is missing entirely, 'corrected' code that is identical to the faulty code it is supposed to fix, bulletted lists that have lost their formatting and so it goes on.

It's a pity, because the dead tree version of the book is very good, but the publisher of the Kindle edition has done a disservice to the authors and readers.

If you are familiar with the content then the Kindle version is a bargain as a revision aid as long as you keep your wits about you. If you are new to the material, buy the paper version.

1.0 out of 5 stars kindle version has many flaws 4 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm only a quarter of the way through this book on kindle and already I have noticed in several places the code examples are incorrect. Seems to repeat code from another section instead of the actual code. This is appalling for a book that is preparing you for an exam

The only thing that's helping me with this is that my employer gave me a hardback paper copy and I can use that to find out what the actual code should be. This works for me but only if I remember to look it up when I get home should I be studying on the train or when away from home.

4.0 out of 5 stars I prepared for SCJP exam just with this book 11 Aug 2009
Format:Hardcover
This book was highly instrumental to my success at the SCJP exam. I would not just recommend this book for only those preparing to take the SCJP exam but for those who are willing to grasp the fundamental knowledge of JAVA.
I must warn that the book is quite voluminous but it's quite helpful if you have got time to prepare for the exam

5.0 out of 5 stars It Does Exactly What It Says On The Tin 19 July 2009
By Mmethod
Format:Hardcover
This book is clear in its contents; a study guide for the Java 6 programmer exam, written by the developers of the exam itself. It makes no promises about teaching you to become a Java guru after reading but I can assure you that you will learn things about Java that you didn't know before and subsequently improve your programming skills. Each section of the book covers the certification objectives entirely, there are lots of examples, lots of questions and the little anecdotes actually make the book fun to read. This book, without question helped my pass my exam.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great study guide but could be improved 15 July 2009
Format:Hardcover
I found this book thorough and the sample questions good. However, I did the 1.4 certification 5 years ago so am somewhat familiar with the subject matter and I found several mistakes in the information they give. My biggest frustration though has been where the authors have used concepts before they introduce them. Take Chapter 7, for example. It begins with Collections and then goes onto Generics. However, they constantly use Generics in the Collections examples, even though these have not yet been explained. They also use boxing before introducing it. There are 10 chapters, some of which are desperately long. It would be far more manageable in smaller chunks. That said though, it's still a very good book and I would definately recommend it, providing you keep your wits about you!
