What a question to ask to an author He's certainly not going to tell that it's worse

My book is very light on illustrations (only two graphics I think), but quite heavy on code samples. It also includes plenty of "Key Points", items that you should focus on because they are not obvious and are likely to come up in the exam. My book has very little humour in it. Actually I'm a really funny guy but I try to keep it out of my technical writing (grins)...

Congratulations, that's less than the spec

How did you summarize the different tags available in the deployment descriptor and in the taglib descriptor ? No graphics ?

In this case, how would you compare your book with SCWCD Exam Study Kit?

Will there be any mock tests for your book, like what you did in SCJP?

It would be reasonable to compare with that book, but I suspect my book is shorter overall. You can see a comprehensive example of my writing style aimed at an old version of the SCJP exam at

I always confuse with your products. Does the book include mock tests or they are in separate product? Looks like it's a study guide only.
thanks

Thus, are you working on the mock tests (like the one you did in SCJP) or it is already in progress?
