This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I don't think the book is an awesome exam prep guide. I didn't really try to write one. I was more interested in writing a book for someone who wants to find work as a Java programmer, and who plans to use the OCA exam as a stepping stone. I am far more interested in what it takes to prepare a person for a job programming in Java. To me, certification is just a means to that end. If by the end of the book you have the tools you need to start reading and understanding Java APIs, I'll feel like I did the job I intended.

Ok, so does your book explain all ways which a task could be done and then explain the best way and why it is the best way?
