Availability of Practice Exam Book

Hello All,

I am preparing to give the SCJP 5 exam and have read the KS&BB book a couple of times.

I see the following Practice Exam book (by KS and BB) listed on Amazon and other websites. I am confused on whether this book is available or not. Some websites list the availability of this book as Sept 2009 (A year away, seems kinda late considering people are already talking about the Java 6 exam)
It seems to be on sale on Amazon by a third party vendor for $135?

Book: "SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Practice Exams (Exam 310-055)"

Is this book available?

Thanks and looking forward to participating in these forums.

Thanks!
Sunil

Howdy Sunny! welcome to java ranch

The book is not available as the authors are just thinking about such a book.

A few rules here, you display name is not correct. Please remove California from it. Use you real name, It seems that your name is Sunil not Sunny. So use your actual name as your display name..

Thanks...

SunnyCalifornia, please check your private messages. You can see them by clicking My Private Messages.

The Practice Exam book is not available. It's a mistake that this book is listed on Amazon. (This has been asked on the forums here before, and the author Bert Bates himself has explained that it's an error at Amazon).

See the JavaRanch SCJP FAQ for lots of useful information about preparing for the SCJP exam.

Thank you for your replies. I apologize for asking the question again but I tried to search for existing posts on the book but couldn't find them. I hope my name is in compliance now. This is a great resource! Thank you!

Your name is fine now, thanks for changing it. Here are some threads in which Bert Bates gives some more information about the mistake with the book:
