THere is no doubt that K&B is a very good book to prepare for certification. BUt i dont think this is good book to start java.I think u must follow some other book before starting this one otherwise u may not be able to understand K&B. Regards candy
Failures are practice shoots for success.
Hi, When i started learning java last year, 1) I first referred to tutorials on the internet and java books , wrote a lot of small programs. writing programs helped me learn java. 2) after i got a fair idea bout java, i bought K&B book, was very useful in understanding how to solve tricky questions. 3)I went thro javacertificate, javaprepare sites, dan chrisholm sites for topic-wise exams. I concentrated on Threads, Looping (for, if, etc). 4) then took up mock exams on internet and then k&b mock exam. Best of Luck ! vidya
