It finally arrived yesterday. The new book "Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java 2" and I am impressed. The book is well laid out, well written and gets to the "meat" of the matter. There are "exam Watch" notes, outlining information and pitfalls from the exam throughout along with "on the Job" notes which describe real-world issues that come up often. Details are drawn out of the page by using Bold type. I may even throw out my highlighter ! I started reading Chapter 7 "Objects and Collections" specifically the section on Garbage Collection. Wow. Clarity or what. If you are serious about passing the SCJP 1.4 exam, do not hesitate, order this book now! Again, Congratulations to Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates. A Superb Job!
