Hi,

I wish to know how far do you guys go on covering the new features like improved concurrency and the new Try Catch with resources statement in Java 7.
Plus are the java specification docs covered maybe as an appendix or something?

Concurrency is not part of the OCAJP so we don't get into that. We do discuss exception handling with the resource statement. The coverage here is intended to match up with what is on the exam so it is not as deep as a pure Java reference book.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
