Greetings to dear SG Ganesh & Tushar Sharma,
These days scores of books are written for the same subject and only a few good one survive rest all perish. Now to monetize on the preparation time, as a candidate i would like to ask the authors what features have they incorporated to make the learning curve easier?
Researchers like (Kolb,1984) have proved that if educational books or imparting education follows learning theories model only then they can be widely accepted by the students. So in the light of this, please explain to me how have you structured the contents and written your book so as to curtail the learning process of a student and help him/her to maximize their output by reading your book?

Reference
Experiential learning: experience as the source of learning and development, D. A. Kolb, 1984, webpage


Still a beginner at crafting quality coding but have the zeal to learn more. Your help would be appreciated.

Hi Ashish,

You have correctly pointed out that such books needs to be written keeping students in mind. In our experience, we found that students (or early stage professionals) like example oriented text rather than theory-filled heavy sacks. Thus, we tried to keep our book example-oriented; each topic is explained using examples.

Some more elements that we introduced in the book to make it a delectable read are:
-a FAQs chapter (since we know students normally have a lot of questions about the certification)
-a pretest to let you know where your preparation stands initially and where you need to put more effort
-a set of questions after each chapter
-"Points to remember" section that lists corner cases and tricky elements with respect to the topic
-two full-size mock-tests (90 questions each)
