I'm not affiliated with these folks, but given the time & money that goes into Developer certification, I thought it was worth risking $50 to see what they had to offer.
They'd do well to pay somebody $1000 to rewrite it for them using the King's English (or at least the President's Texan), but from reading this and one other SCJD forum, there are a lot of people that would do well to buy it.
As one example, they give the code fragment needed to enable hyperlinks in JEditorPane, which was the topic of a recent post here.
If it amounted to no more than a SCJD "cheat sheet," I wouldn't mention it, but in fact I think it can be used as another good learning resource- which is mostly the point of certification.

I just went back to their website, and saw where it says "It provides 5 complete working sample projects."
If it once did, I haven't seen where it still does, so presumably that's been removed. There's still a lot of good information though, which may continue to be useful after I'm finished with certification.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
