It is OK book,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 6 Exam 310-065 (Hardcover)
I am giving it 4 stars because most of knowledge you are going to receive from this book is a complete nonsense. You need this knowledge to complete the exam, but I highly doubt the idea that it will make you a better developer. 90% of what SCJP about is a Java trivia. Things you will never need in order to deal with you code. It is kind of shame that language syntax and other non-important things took such a precedence in this exam. I am not sure that person would be able to write a bauble sort algorithm or any other sorting algorithm after reading this book or any other book dedicated to the subject. This book will take a 1/2 of year of your life to prepare for certification and it will indeed make you ready. But I said before would it make you a better Java developer ? Not really sure.
