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.
In the below statement given in K&B for SCJP in page number 492 under Serialization sub topic .I think there should be readObject() instead of readMethod().If this was a typo or an error please add this one into Errata list.
"The key method you invoke to serialize an object is writeObject(), and to deserialize an object invoke readMethod()."
