What An Excellent Book! [ No Rating ] 26 Jul 2006 (updated 26 Jul 2006) by andrew myo Dear Mr. Author

I have got a copy of your book last week. It is really an incredible book that I have ever seen. I have seen so many Java books like Deitel, Ivor Horton. They are also good. But the book of yours can give me an overall bird-eye view of the Java Environment together with so many useful questions. I am totally impressed with the way you have learned Java. Yours Sincerely Ye Tun Oo -- Lulu - readers' review comments

Concise, to the point and delivers 4 Feb 2006 by rvakella This is a very well written book, and very intense, not only for interviews but also for a quick reference. The author describes all the key features quite succinctly. I have not seen a book of this nature in my experience previously and have thus enjoyed reading it multiple times. -- Lulu - readers' review comments

Success rate in interviews is very high [ No Rating ] 26 Sep 2006 by vsen2k5 hi all, success rate in interviews is very high when i used this book. this is the best book one can buy, that gives overall summary of most j2ee, java technologies in a concise manner . it is very helpful for interviews and can be used as a reference . i used this to get 6 jobs in 2 weeks . out of which one is an architect job . kudos to the author. regards vinodh eth -- Lulu - readers' review comments

by Bharadwaj Gopal Having gone through the book, I have to say that I am really impressed with the book as a whole. It covers key concepts, stating the basics and fundamentals clearly. Its well updated including EJB 3.0, popular frameworks such as Hibernate, Struts and touching upon latest versions of JDK as well whereever needed. The book is well organised and covers all typical questions of a Java/J2EE interview. Most of the time we do know the questions and the standard answers, but a person reading this book would be able to express a clear answer which would make the person taking the interview believe that the candidate is a clearly above the mark. This book should be equally useful to interview takers as it is to job applicants. -- Lulu - readers' review comments

This book does a very good job of highlighting the key topics that are likely to be discussed during interviews and giving various levels of answers.
Josh Berry
Not only for the J2EE interviews but a very good book for refreshing Java/J2EE concepts.

Format: Paperback
It's a long exam, by some standards. The questions range very widely, and offer a strenuous test of your java knowledge. The relatively easy section comes first. Where the questions are about standard java. The java that is usually denoted J2SE. Many java programmers should breeze thru it. Anyone with fluency in writing vanilla java won't have any problems. Perhaps in recognition of this, the author has kept this section relatively brief.

The meat of the exam is about Enterprise level java. J2EE. Much of this relates to running an enterprise program on a server. What type of server? Some questions concern when you have a web server. So brush up on Java Server Pages, Servlets and Beans. Speaking of beans, you also need to cover EJBs.

Another type of server is when you have to hook up to a SQL database. And there are questions about how to do this. Plus, interacting between a java program and XML is an important practical topic. Also covered. Along with running unit tests, via JUnit, and implementing a logger.

More is covered. Good revision before a job interview.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By T. Powell on September 5, 2008
Format: Paperback
Overall, I give this book a medium rating. There is a lot of information about J2EE and related technologies, which is good to help give you a quick understanding of technologies if you don't have any experience with them. The presentation is very weak and this book could be much better with a proper job of editing.

Pros: lots of good information, presented in a concise manner, lots of brief code examples
Cons: poorly written, many points are repeated multiple times, the grammar is sometimes difficult to understand

Format: Paperback
I'm finding this a good book preparing for interviews after over a year out traveling, a slightly scary prospect. It's great to find so much subject matter (and most of it very relevant) in one place, but I'm only giving it 3 stars due to some really poor editing. Not something I normally worry about unduly, but I have a breaking point. Some of the examples are lifted more or less straight off other websites...

Great, but intense brush up on Java/J2EE for those interviewing with Google, Microsoft, Amazon or any of the other "rigorous interview" tech companies.

Format: Paperback
There are many glaring grammatical and sentence construction errors. Anybody would expect quality work for a book that is priced $$. Sure one can swallow some mistakes of this kind given the fact its a technical book, but not when it interferes with your reading and wastes your time. 3 stars are for the subject matter covered.

An excellent book. Not only for the J2EE interviews but a very good book for refreshing Java/J2EE concepts. Many times, it happens that, we would have worked on a particular technology very well a while ago, but we may not be able to answer even fundamental questions if we do not refresh our knowledge before interview. That is where this book will be very useful.

Format: Paperback
This book covers most of the topics one might need for a J2EE interview, and in that sense it is a good book. Quite adequate for reviewing before interviews just as I'm doing.
However, even if it is a technical book, it should be written using adequate English grammar and using good writing techniques. Just as J2EE has its tricks, so does English. A more professional layout would also be useful. The book needs an editor. Urgently.

This is one of the best books that talk about the J2EE concepts in detail. This book helped me gain a more thorough understanding of J2EE concepts. I learnt a lot from this book eventhough I had 12 yrs of mostly java and j2ee related experience.
