Let's face it. The Sun Certified Java Developers Exam is tough. If you are serious about passing, this is an excellent book for anyone wishing to avoid the common pitfalls associated with many of the projects. The authors reveal various approaches to many of the issues that need to be resolved, discussing both the advantages and disadvantages of each. I found the authors' information on Threading, Building the GUI, logging, configuration, RMI vs. Sockets and "putting it all together" all extremely helpful.

Even though the book has already helped me pass the exam, I will continue to refer to it, because it is filled with great information that applies to development in the real world, as much as it does in the SCJD Exam.

The SCJD exam is tough and time-consuming. It requires a good deal of effort. So no surprise there are only like two books out that cover this topic. Fortunately, this book does a great job.

I'm an experienced developer, so I was already familar with many of the concepts covered in the book. Where this book was valuable to me was in the guidance it provided through the SCJD process. It helped me complete the assignment faster (I did it in half the time I had originally estimated). And gave me more confidence when it was time to submit my work.

Most of the time people who are preparing for SCJD will buy this book but it is good beyond that. Second edition give you practical example on actual project. It is kind of parallel to what you are doing in SCJD. Author is active member on javaranch and gives very useful tips to all post in SCJD forum. I think people who want to improve Java skills on application side should look into this book as well.

I am using it for SCJD exam. Good luck to all.

The SCJD assignments are somewhat vague and misleading. While part of the exercise is to work through imperfect requirements (as those you will find in the real world), a good set of 'must' requirements needs to be met. The Sun Certified Java Developer Exam with J2SE 5 book fills in the gaps for common questions a SCJD candidate may have on areas such as packaging, logging and Javadoc. More importantly, the authors walk through a sample project detailing key areas of importance to your SCJD assignment; including RMI, Sockets, serialization, Swing, threads, design patterns, value/transfer objects and more.

If you are going to do the SCJD assignment, you should purchase this book. You will find yourself developing the assignment the 'right' way and you will also find yourself working many of the author's suggestions into your workplace.

The code for the sample project is provided online for reference purposes.

It does exactly what it proposes. It's a not a good java reference book, its intended to give you insights on how to easily achieve the scjd exam objectives, and I think it does a great job at that. I havent downloaded my exam yet (waiting for sun to send me the access code), but I think this book is really helpful.

Even if you decide not to seek Java Developer Certification you owe it to yourself to read this one. You won't find any better coverage of threads and RMI anywhere.
