At end of each chapter you are given a review test (answers are provided), in addition there are many exercises to work on at the end of each chapter. However, answers are not provided, but if you work through the exercises - you begin to feel like a java-guru. The authors also provide excellent support, I had difficulty with 2 questions and the authors responded to and corrected my code!
Negatives: Difficult to read, would not recommend this to a "newbie", it is probably more suitable for an "intermediate" programmer. The chapters on "Classes" and "OO Concepts" are very poorly written (I had to switch to another book to learn OO concepts & classes)
