This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I don't know if they are too old, but they are still relevant. The reason why they aren't there in the current beta version is more of an oversight. They will be available in the next batch of changes that we have lined up for the beta view.
