This week's book giveaway is in the Java in General forum. We're giving away four copies of Think Java: How to Think Like a Computer Scientist and have Allen B. Downey & Chris Mayfield on-line! See this thread for details.
I've been putting together a guide for the Certification Exam based on the objectives set forth by BEA (9 sections). It's in the format of links to supporting documents, and milestones to be met for each section. I would be interested to know from anyone who has taken the exam, or is currently studying for the exam, what you think of it (the layout, the logic, does it look like a viable path for passing the exam, etc.). Any suggestions or criticisms at all would be appreciated! If you're interested, send me an email or respond as such to this message, and I'll send over a copy (zipped word doc, 28kb). Please read disclaimer: The author has made his best efforts to prepare this guide, but alas is just a student such as yourselves. The author makes no representation or warranties of any kind with regard to the completeness or accuracy of the contents of the guide, and accepts no liability of any kind, including but not limited to another's passing the exam, or any loss or damages of any kind caused or alleged to be caused directly or indirectly from this guide. The author is in no way an employee of, or affiliated with BEA Systems.

I might add a mock exam, and some additional tutorials, and anything else that may seem pertinent, so check back often. Thanks to all of you who have requsted the guide and given feedback, and especially the JavaRanch. I appreciate your help! I hope in some way I've helped others become proficient in WebLogic Server.
