This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
It's going to be a challenging, but rewarding and hands-on experience. More thoughts about target audience, also make sure you check the free chapter from the publisher's site, it should give you a good idea if you'll like the book.
