The authors also do not distinguish the difference between widening of primitive types and upcasting of classes.
The sum() method on page 166 creates n Double object wrappers, instead of using primitive double variable etc. and so on.
This book also contains many groundless optimization tips, for example it states that final classes in Java are more efficient, because "the method calls are resolved in compiler time" . That is wrong for Hotspot JVM, because it's smart enough to apply analogous optimization looking whether the method is effectively overriden in subclass or not - it's done during the classloading and has nothing to do with final keyword.
You should not justify twisting your code only by a hypothesis that there may exist some JVM where some specific optimization *may* work.
P.S. sorry for my English I'm not a native speaker.
Otherwise, this was a good study aid. It seems comprehensive.
Update- I completed this book the first time. It's like 650 pages. I will re-read it and then take the enthuware mock exams I bought (which they updated for me recently). I like the book, I like the writing style, I believe in the content, and it's nice to have somebody gather this information for me in a way that helps me target the exam. I'll update this when I get results on my exam. My recommendation is to read it twice, and I'm following my own recommendation. 650 pages is a lot of information to take in.
Update- After reading this book twice, taking and reviewing both included exams, reading the online Oracle.com Javadocs for the OCP JP SE 7 certification, getting a wee bit of practical experience, and taking and reviewing all 5+1 associated Enthuware exams, I passed the 804 exam on my first try. I got a 70%, where 65% is a passing score. This book was an important introductory step toward getting this certification. The study process up to today (June 9 2014 pass) took me 6 months of part-time study.
I recommend studying this book as a part of the above steps to prepare for the 804 exam.
For someone who wants to understand Java in depth, and at the same time prepare for certification, there is no alternative to Head First. Having said that since its not yet available for Java 7, I will suggest using the complete reference also if you are going with this book. Or using Head First and preparing the V7 changes from another source.
This book is fine but lacks depth and falls short in explaining things in details.
