This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
To ALL Javarachers: Passed SCJP2 yesterday with score 89 (53/59) Made some stupid mistakes, otherwise would have gone close to 59. Thank you all for your kind help. I visited JavaRanch everyday. Finding Java ranch site was a turning point while studying for certification. RHE & Mughal both are great books. Java2 exam Notes by Heller is also another good book. JQ+ was a big help. Though service provided by these people was very poor. There were no replies for some of the queries. Never mind. Also very helpful was exam cram "question of the day". I would say that the 4 exams from RHE book have a very similar look to the actual one. The difficulty level in my opinion is same as SCJP exam. RHE(4 tests), Java2 exam notes, JQ+ have questions similar to SCJP exam. Once again thank you all. Next I want to do Sun's Architect Certification. Please suggest useful sites and resources. Avinash.
Congratulations Avinash! Can you please tell me which queries did you not get any reply for? I handle nearly all the technical querries sent to email@example.com . I checked our email support log and I did not see ANY (not even a single email) from you. Did you use any other name? If yes, then let me know so that I can see which one of your query was not answerd. thanks, Paul.
Thanks Paul, I have posted JQ+ question about thread on Java ranch. For that you replied saying the question is correct in your copy. Well maybe that was a typo in my copy. After asking about errata page you never replied. I havn't sent that question to firstname.lastname@example.org Anyway your product is too good. And I strongly recommend this to everyone who is preparing for SCJP. Avinash

Well, I do not hang out here all the times. So sometimes I answer the queries (which may not even have to do anything with jqplus) and sometimes I do not. We do not officially provide any support on this site. But we make sure that we reply to all the questions asked by our customers on jqplus_t@hotmail (which is our official support email id.) or on www.jdiscuss.com Your comment about our support really surprised me and that's why I checked the logs. Thanks for your appreciation and best of luck for your future, Paul.
