Hi Guys:

Here's what we know now:

1 - We're working on our LAST CHAPTER (it's the generics chapter )
2 - There are still several chapters that have to be reviewed, and a few more mock questions to write... general tidying up.
3 - We have permission to post several important topics from the book so that you can do some more studying before the book is published. We plan on publishing 3 topics for you, the first one will be available early next week!
4 - If you have a book on 1.4, you can do a lot of studying now! Just skip bit shifting, and skip the Math class. Everything else in a good 1.4 book will help you study for Java 5. (Remember though that no 1.4 book can prepare you for the Java 5 topics - and the exam has LOTS of tiger questions.)

hth, and thanks for your patience!

Bert

Ok - a little more good news and bad news...

The good news is that we're going to submit the last chapter on Monday!!!

The (only slightly) bad news is that I'm going to focus on getting that chapter done, and THEN posting sample topics here

But, once the chapters are all submitted we'll get a much better idea of when the book will hit the shelves, and I'll be able to focus on posting these sample topics!

Thanks!

Bert
