However, I cant believe the author is a Java/programming expert. At some point he says that it is easier to parse strings by kicking off an external Perl program. And he frequently discusses StringBuffers, Vectors, etc which good Java programmers in this decade would not champion (should use StringBuilders and ArrayLists). Also, as some others have said, his language is not precise and the editing/proofreading is really bad.
I dont really think it is 1 star, I think it is worth purchasing (maybe 2 or 3 stars), but the average score is too high. :)

This book, and the SCJA Exam Questions Book were the only two resources that I used to study. They're definitely all you need to pass the exam.
These books are awesome!
The only thing I would do differently is carefully review the exam objectives on Sun's website and review the applicable sections in the book or even other sources for anything that I was hazy on. The exam objectives accurately define what you need to know to pass in pretty good detail so study them carefully.
Not only is the book chocked full of invaluable information regarding the areas covered on the SCJA exam, the information is presented in a very easy to follow and humerous fashion.
There were many times while reading that I actually found myself laughing out loud at the analogies the author used to illustrate his point.
This is actually the first "text" book that I have read in it's entirety. It's also one that I don't plan to resell as I can see it being a useful reference for quite some time to come.
Bottom line: If you are studying for the SCJA exam - or just want to learn a little more about Java -- this is a great book to add to your reading list.
If you can pass the exams in the book, you'll have no problem passing the exam. Just make sure you understand why certain answers to the mock exams are right, and why certain answers are wrong. It's all explained thoroughly in the book, but don't take anything for granted.
The book is written in a very easy to read, conversational style. I actually read half the book in one sitting. It wasn't like reading a technical book, but instead, like having a fun and casual conversation with an expert in the field.
This is the book you need to pass the exam.
As far as the exam goes, well, it seems pretty straight forward until you really get into how much content it covered. You really have to know a little bit about everything to do well on this exam. I mean, it covers EJBs and it also covers Midlets - talk about opposite ends of the spectrum. The real challenge is knowing how much to study. You can easily study way too much on the topics of JSPs and Servlets, or you can spend too little time on JMS and Web Services - either way, you're not using your time effectively. That's probably the best thing about this book. It covers all of the topics on the exam in just the right depth, making you very comfortable with how much you need to study, and letting you know when you are finished with a particular objectives.
Personally, I thought the object oriented analysis and design section of the book was the best explaination about OOA&D and UML I've ever encountered. It was comprehensive, yet to the point. You learned what was important very quickly.
I also used the SCJA Exam Questions Guide by the same author to really practice hard.Read more ›
