This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
HF Java isn't intended to be a study guide for any of the Sun certification exams. We hope that it's a good intro to Java, and if you don't know very much Java it might be a good place to start, but it will NOT prepare you for the SCJP. We have another book that's intended to help you study for the SCJP exam, people around here call it "K & B". Also, there are other books that focus on the SCJP exam, and there are a LOT of mock exams available too.
Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!
