Hi Bert!

Congratulations on your new book! I was wondering how this is different with the previous book you wrote with Kathy on SCJP 6.

Also, would you know if the Kindle versions of both books will be out eventually?

Thanks and all the best with your new book!

Paul

"SCJP for Java 6 Study Guide" teaches you Java and Java for SCJP in particular. This book does not. It is packed with questions to help you practice what you've learned in the "SCJP for Java 6 Study Guide". It also contains study tips and advices according to your results.

What is the structure of the book?
I mean... are the questions arranged here by topic or is it just a compilation of some sample papers for the overall exam?
Also, what is the difficulty level of the questions included?
I am already SCJP certified... could it still be of any interest to me? Any guesses?

You can check the Table Of Content at the link I've posted in my previous post. There are several master exams which contain several questions, covering all topics of the real exam. Questions vary in difficulty, but as a whole, each master exam is more difficult than the real exam.

I am already SCJP certified... would it still interest me? Any guesses?

If you like to torture yourself again with SCJP-like questions, why not

I doubt it. This is not a code puzzle book but rather a book that will strengthen your code analyzing abilities. You are going to need a lot of will power to get through it successfully. Think of it as an elaborate mock exam simulator in the form of a book.

Just to note - there is a chapter called Coding Exercises which is supposed to improve your Java coding skills.

I think most of the questions have been well answered, but I'll add one more detail:

There is an appendix in the book that lists the exam objectives, and for each objective lists which questions (by page number) in the book cover that objective. So, if you want to focus on a particular objective this appendix provides a path to get there.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
