I've been looking all over the net to find answers for the sharpen you pencil exercises in head first java (first edition), but all i've found is answers to part one of the book - only chapters 1-8...

Does anyone know where i can find answers to chapter 9-17?

Did they ever even publish this?

There are answers at the *end* of all chapters to the exercises at the *end* of all chapters.

I am refering to the "sharpen your pencil" exercises which appear intermittently throughout each chapter. I did find the solutions to ch. 1-8 on google at www.wickedlysmart.com/HeadFirst/HeadFirstJava/sharpens/SharpensOne.pdf

However, I haven't been able to find answers to ch. 9-17 and replacing 'Two' for the 'One' in that link doesnt' pull anything up... seems rather disorganized the way wickedlysmart.com is laid out.

any ideas?

I read in the text that we could find 'suggested' solutions at www.wickedlysmart.com.

Hi Guys -

The solutions for the 2nd half of the book are not available

A lot of teachers asked us NOT to publish those solutions so that the exercises could be used in the classroom... Given that this IS JavaRanch, I'm sure that if you want to post your solutions here you'd get lots of valuable feedback

hth,

Bert

Indeed, I surmised this to sadly be the case.

However, I have discovered a work around in many cases where i simply test my answers by compiling test code...

takes longer but relieves the wonder and anxiety of the uncertain...
