Thanks for fielding our questions Edward and Robert.

I will be taking the Java 6 Programmer (1Z0-851) exam in a few months (probably around mid-December). I plan on utilizing the SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 6 Study Guide (1Z0-851) by Katherine Sierra and Bert Bates for my preparation.

I tend to side with the belief that the more resources someone can have, the better. I realize that isn't always the case, but it's a character flaw

My question is, do you guys feel that it would be worthwhile for me to utilize your book as well for my exam prep? I realize that your book is for v7 and I'm taking the v6 exam, but I would think there's definitely going to be some overlap. My thoughts are your book could reinforce some of the concepts since they might be explained/displayed differently.

Your thoughts/recommendations?

Thanks,

Karl

No, if you study from the SCJP book, you should have near-complete coverage, and will not need to reference our book at all. Essentially, the SCJP exam was broken into two exams, the OCA and OCP. Therefore, the SCJP book that covered the SCJP exam will now cover the OCA and the OCP exam. As such, the SCJP (K&B) book is currently being updated to fully cover the new objectives being added to both exams.

Now, if you did choose to use our book as a supplemental resource to the SCJP book, we do provide extra information in the appendices and throughout our book that will be very useful (and direct).

Note though, that in promotion of *our* book, if you want to stay focused on the objectives at hand for the 1Z0-803 test, you will be able to use our book as your primary resource.

But either way (either resource), the SCJP (K&B) book, or our OCA SE 7 (E&R) book, will get you where you need to be; Java SE 7 certified.

Thanks,
Robert
