Thanks, Amazon for fast delivery of this great book!
on 12 December 2008
I would like to thank Amazon for less than 1-day delivery. They've really impressed me by delivering the book within 1 day, when I paid only for first-class postage.
Now, about the book - I haven't read much of the book so far, but it looks quite interesting. It does go into a lot of detail about the basics and is quite funny as well at times, which is quite refreshing! I've also seen that the book uses Memory Maps to convey ideas clearly and to help with remembering, the book repeats the same question over and over again and in different forms.
I am already a fan of Sierra and Bates's book for SCJP and passed that exam by merely studying that book for 8 days. I couldn't complete the book, but still attempted the exam and achieved 70%, which I feel was not bad!
Will review again after reading the book and attempting the real exam. Watch this space....
