Thank you all for your welcomes (back). It has been a while since I've had time to trail through these parts, so I look forward to your questions this week. Some general information you may find helpful about the book can be found in these places:

Publisher's Page (description, table of contents, sample chapter) (6 five-star reviews) ($39.99 - 28% = $28.79 USD) (average 4.25 reviews) (£29.99 - 5% = £28.49 GBP)
Asian edition (Rs.399)

As the new book (with the black and red cover) is a second edition, there are also a number of reviews of the first edition including:

JavaRanch Bunkhouse review
3 Steps to Success review (from a JavaRanch contributor)
JavaRanch reader's review

Is this book is sufficient for the exam?

Of Course and almost . Mostly it would suffice until you feel like going for another book! (if at all)
