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.
I have a good basic knowledge about java. I am Doing MCA in India. Have done SUN courseware core and advance java course from NIIT Technologies. In their Module tests i scored 70% and 60% respectively without reading even once.
Now have almost gone through the book "Java, How to Program 7th edition" by Deitel and Deitel. Just 2-3 chapters are left. It concentrates more on java SE 6.0. But still i would like to go for SCJP 1.5 only.
I am planning to take the exam in first week of May. I have a query whether now reading K&B book help me further. If so which book to purchase, i mean which edition. Probably if i am provided with ISBN, Publishers name and year, would be obliged.
Also what is the difference between SCJP 1.5 and 1.4. Could someone just specify the extra topics added in 1.5.
Thanks in advance! :roll:
