Welcome to JavaRanch.

There are different editions of the K&B book, for example an edition for SCJP 5 and an edition for SCJP 6. Which edition of the book do you have?

Hate to side track this question, but since it has already been answered...


What is wrong with studying something that is not on the test? Isn't the point to learn the subject? And whether it is on the test or not, it will definitely be something that you will use as a professional programmer, right?

Henry +1

To clarify however, Sun / Oracle is really pushing folks away from the older wait/notify approach and towards the newer concurrency APIs.

But I think that an understanding of serialization will definitely payoff somewhere in most folks' Java careers...

The answer to this question is some training and degree programs require this test to be taken regardless of the student's current of future plans to use Java professionally.

Ron,
Welcome to the Ranch! That is a good point.

Another reason that learning something for understanding and being able to spot obscure edge cases on the topic are quite different things.

Thanks Jeanne!

I have no practical Java experience but this class is part of my degree program. So I'm trying to learn as much as I can, but there is also the reality that I probably won't have much Java in my future.

Nevertheless, this is one very specific test. It seems like it's less about useful knowledge of the language and more about knowing how to answer questions in a particular, tricky way.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
