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.

thanks sir for the kind information.
i didn't knew that serialization has been removed as it was given in the BOOK(kathy siera and bert bates).
someone told me earlier that wait and notify also has been removed, is it like that?
please do tell us the other topics that has been recently removed from SCJP 1.6(310-065) but still given in book,
it will remove lots of load from SCJP1.6 aspirant students who are referring BOOK(kathy siera and bert bates)??
thanks once again!!

This might not be the complete list, but for sure these topics have been removed:
- wait and notify
Be careful with this last one! System.gc() is gone but garbage collection and finalize() are still in the exam and tricky!
The objectives for section 1 have been consolidated a bit, but I think all the old bases in section 1 are still covered.
Bitwise operators are gone, but they might have been gone as of SCJP 5.
