Hi,

I had the misfortune of purchasing this book and would sincerely not recommend it.

It basically consists of a summary of the relevant API's and some lame multiple choice questions. I guess that all books by this author are of a similar nature. Please don't make the same mistake I did.

Sincerely,

Hi Rory,

First of all: Welcome to the JavaRanch!

Unfortunately to hear the book was not good, but thanks for sharing your experiences with the book. I can advice a really good SCJD-book, written by Andrew Monkhouse. More info can be found in ScjdFaq

Kind regards,
Roel
