I'm thinking about purchasing the Java series from Has anyone used this series or heard anything good about it? Trying to figure out if it's worth my money or if I should just keep reading.....

I remember seeing a few questions out of it, but im not sure. But whatever it be, my suggestion would be that, just purchase a book (preferably Kathy's), and browse around this forum, and that'll b enough. i never had even a little bit of difficulty managing the exam after whatever i got out of this site... and i scored a nice 90%.

If I were to give myself advice, I'd strongly suggest using all of the great and free learning resources available on the internet. There are thousands of practice questions and excellent explanations of various topics on some good web sites around, like this one, from which to learn.
A good book is usually nice, and would cost about 10% or less of that LearnKey product.
I've never heard someone say that they learned much from a product like LearnKey offers, or that they were happy with their purchase. Now, I don't think I've ever known someone that purchased this exact product from LearnKey.
