Learn Java at the Programmer level in a friendly way.,
This review is from: Mike Meyers' Java 2 Certification Passport (Exam 310-025) (Paperback)
I'm a Java instructor and I really like this book. It's succinct by nature with the ultimate goal of passing the Sun 310-025 certification exam. However, there are many surprises in this book for students learning Java without intending certification. For example, chapter 10 on "AWT2: Making the Screen Work," is the best single chapter I've found that progressively takes the reader through the event model and implementing listeners. If you're having trouble understanding anonymous inner class listeners, buy this book for that reason alone.
