Nice book.. Not for someone who wants to learn java. Recommend it only if you have some IT background and well aware of programming concepts. Read morePublished 19 days ago by prerit

I did not see detailed topics on any of the Java 5 and above version. Its very similar to the Java 1.2 certification book.Published 6 months ago by Jopzy Philips
Useful for taking the SJCP exam, pretty much the gold standard exam review book. Also came with exam on a dvd disc. Humorous writing from time to time.Published 7 months ago by Li
