This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi All, I purchased the K&B book to study for the SC programmer exam. I have Java programming background but I'm wondering if the book covers all the material needed to for the exam? Did Sun objectives change since the book was published.
I have the same doubt...Please any one clarify if K&B covers all the objectives of the SCJP exam...In some mock tests i found some questions based on static , non static block, operator precedence ( based on JLS) (visit http://www.go4java.20m.com/mock1.htm as well as mock2.htm)....Whether these are in Objectives of SCJP....Thanks in Advance...Please clarify....
Yeah K&B book has everything in there you need to know for the exam! I have been using it for the last couple of weeks and have learned thing from it that i would'nt i thought i needed to for the exam.
K&B book is great

Yes Thats right, K&B book is good, but the question is whether the book completely covers the objectives....
It covers all the objectives and is a very good book. However unless it is entirely beyond your pocket I recommend getting at least one other book so you can see the topics covered from a different angle (and you will get some additional mock questions to sharpen your skills on).
Yes K&B is good, but only for 1.4. Is the SCJP 5.0 version of the book out yet? I havn't seen it. There are very important additions in the exam objectives of SCJP for J2SE 5.0, and to cover that K&B will need to be modified...I don't what their plans are...
