I love the quality of McGraw Hills books and specially the ones to prepare the Java Certify exams. I'm also a Kindle user with very good experiences reading books in Kindle versions.

But this one is completely useless. As you may know, Kindle books are actually a kind of HTML code (with labels like: '<'html'>', '<'body'>', '<'p'>', etc.). Well, Java ALSO use these kind of labels for its GENERIC parameters, so when you open this book in Kindle version you lose every generic argument (and there are a lot of them in the exams) because the book reader thinks they are HTML labels and don't show them.
This problem also affects to EVERY comparation expression which uses the characters ">" or "<" or ">=" or "<="...

So, as you can check in the Free Sample here in Amazon, in the question 9 of the Assestment Test 1, you can find a code fragment like this:

6. List c0 = new List();
7. List c1 = new ArrayList();
8. List c2 = new ArrayList();
9. List c3 = new ArrayList();
10. List c4 = new ArrayList();
11. ArrayList c5 = new ArrayList();

Where lines 7,8,9 and 10 supposedly are different, and you don't see it but all of those lines are actually using generic parameters
Big joke that Amazon is selling this as an exams book. I regret so much of buying this version. I'll try to get Amazon correct the book or give me a solution, because this is unacceptable.

UPDATE (2010-12-20): Amazon has contacted me and they will refund the money of the book. Anyway, I'll leave this reply here to let everyone who think on buying the Kindle version of the book know about this issue, and to encourage them to CHECK FIRST the free sample here in Amazon to see if they have already fixed it.

Thanks so much to Amazon and their quick response and to the author who paid attention on this the same moment I wrote it.

Disclosure: I was one of the tech reviewers of this book so I'm probably biased. I'm reviewing it anyway and saying *why* I liked things.

1) Lots of questions
2) Clear explanations
3) Advice on how to study
4) Similar looking problems that test different things so your brain doesn't memorize "the answer is 'a' as fast"
5) Harder questions than are on the test and a mapping to to how it would relate to an actual score.

Note this is not like the thick SCJP book that is a study guide to the exam. This book is virtually all practice exams.

I studied for the SCJP (OCJP) test for more than a year (on and off). I started with the SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 6 Exam 310-065 book, which was helpful. Once I finished, I felt that I needed more exam questions before taking the real exam, so I purchased this exams book. My exam scores (for the exams in this book) tracked at around 20-40% correct. Toward the end, I think I scored about 50%. According to this book, with such scores, I wasn't close to being ready to take the real exam. For this reason, I rescheduled the exam several times and I continued to study. The book told me I wasn't ready, right?

I finally got the courage to take the real exam. (My test voucher was about to expire, so I didn't have much choice.) The actual exam is *worlds* easier than the exams in this book. I scored an 83% on the real exam, but according to this book, I wasn't close to being ready to take it. I finished the exam with 45 minutes to spare, after several rounds of review. As another reviewer stated, there are fewer options for each question and the number of correct answers for each question is stated in the real exam. This makes the questions much easier! On top of that, the questions were more obvious. (Sure, there were tricky things thrown in (e.g., final and static modifiers) here and there.) To be fair, the book states that the questions are more difficult than those on the actual exam.

So, yes, the exams book did inform me of some exam 'gotchas'. It also scared me so much that I almost didn't take the exam. I would have preferred a book that was representative of the actual exam.

I passed the exam with 98% and while this book had a part to play, in the hind sight, I feel it wasn't money well spent, specially since I already had the SCJP Study Guide by the same Authors. I wanted to practice some more questions before the actual exam and based on the positive reviews I bought this book for that purpose. I must say the book tries to make it convenient to help the user reach to specific question(s) since it contains the same question with and with out answer and has a mapping of exam objectives and the questions. Of course, it can't escape the limitations of a book, but there are some things I wish the authors had made more exam like.

The actual exam tells you the number of correct options that you have to select, this book doesn't. Apparently, this was done to "help" the reader learn better, but I found it really frustrating because it makes the questions really hard to answer in the given time limit. This leaves you totally clueless as to how fast or slow you should go in the actual exam.

My second biggest gripe that that the proportion of very twisted questions seemed high. They are unrealistic as compared to the actual exam. Some questions have as many as 8 options! In the actual exam I got may be a question or two with 6 options. One can argue that it is all for your own good and I think it is ok for the other book I mentioned before, but I was expecting more exam like stuff from this book.

I am not sure if the other reviewers actually used the book while studying for and before taking the actual test or just read the book casually and posted 5 start reviews here because my experience with the book was very different. I finally bought exam simulator from Enthuware for $20 which was exactly what I was looking for. I wish I had bought it before spending $40 (including shipping to SA) on this book.
