OK, one more time... our final set of 65 practice exam questions are ready for a beta test (actually we have about half right now, and the other half will be done Friday night). As usual, it's a very tight deadline (don't ask why), and we need all results by Sunday morning Colorado time (whatever that is, does anyone know the official time zone here?)
This exam VERY closely models the real exam in difficulty, topics, tone, structure (without giving anything away, of course ) and is probably the closest you'll get to the real exam (similar to Sun's ePractice, since the same people wrote them).
So, if you're interested, you'll need to have some free time this weekend to test them. As before, we're looking only for technical accuracy. These questions are for the website that McGraw-Hill is hosting to go with the new book.
Since the physical book has already been printed, it's too late to get your name in the book if you weren't in the earlier batch of testers, BUT we WILL put your name in the acknowledgements section of the O'Reilly book we have coming out in a few months (Bert and I will say more about *that* book in a few weeks)
Send me an email directly:
kathy.sierra@wickedlysmart.com
[the wickedlysmart website is a little behind schedule, expect it to be live sometime this month]
Yee-haw!

Hi Kathy,
there you are. In case if you haven't noticed, I wanted to know s/t about the nested static classes. I didn't know Bert was also in that team. Can you please write a line or two for the following thread http://www.coderanch.com/t/240152/java-programmer-SCJP/certification/inner-classes
