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.
Well Book is good, but eventually, I would like to tell you, It totally depends upon your expereince. I have read some of sections of this book. Specially Section III is good a bit.
It would be innapropriate for me not to mention one major issue I have with the book. The book makes reference to resources in a cd that wasn't even included. At the end of the book, where most CDs are found, there's a sales pitch to call a 1800number to ORDER a cd! There isn't even a website with supporting documents for this book, which is a luxury that we're accustomed to with other publishers.
But finally I have concluded that it may be worthy if I have some expereince around 10-12 Years. [ October 03, 2006: Message edited by: Ankur Sharma ]
Much of the advice in this book may have been useful 10 years ago, but isn't relevent today. The picture of a pile of 3.5" floppy disks on the back cover is a good indication of the dated material in the book.
Well, lets assume no bubbles busted in past 7 years and world is not happy with CDs, DVDs, BluRays etc. and waiting for floppy disks to come back. Seems like a pretty useful book to me
