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.
The 1.3 version is definitely good. "One book has all" would be an apt desc for this book. There are parts of the book, where you might want to have a companion book to get more insight.. but this will definitely get you going!
