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.
We do provide a sample assignment for SCJD. It is not same as the actual assignment but it covers all the concepts and techniques that you need to learn to develop the SCJD assignment. You can know more about it here : http://enthuware.com/jdevplus
