from 1.5, Head First only helps you 50%, remaining 50% are specs, API and lots of practice... So guys, dont depend only on Head First blidly. The time you spent on reading Head First, equally you have to spend on specs, APIs and practice.
I wrote a whole chapter about (classic) custom tags and another on tag files; I always found custom tags a bit tricky myself, so I put some pretty diagrams in there too which I found really helpful to explain all the steps (like calling setters, iterating, skipping over the body content, discarding that body etc.) You can pretty much use those four diagrams to study the entire section on tags - at least I think so...
What about custom tags?I could not find any good tutorials on BodyTag class.
Can you give more info on what is not covered in HFSJ please
noticed that there are efw extra methods covered there.
not everything, but most of them. which were not emphasised in Head First as well.
Does this mean that we need to memorize API for covered classes?
No, no need, not at all. not required.
Should we look for another book ?
Absolutely Correct, this is what i am doing now. If you are good enough in this, it's moore than enough. you can even score good marks.
Or is it enough to try every possible weired idea that pops in our heads about these topic and see what output we get, and try to understand them of the old HFSJ.
No need to scare about anything, if have completed Head First twice, simultaneously covering APIs and Specs, and practiced your wiered ideas, that's more than enough.
scary stuff out there.
Why not? Unless there's a very close expiration date on your voucher, there's surely no point in rushing the preparation, missing bits, then failing the exam because of a lack of solid knowledge? Personally, I'm happiest sitting an exam when I feel I know everything in depth (usually it turns out I don't, but it's beneficial to at least feel confident!). Speaking from experience too, most people I know get the best knowledge from consulting different resources as each presents topics in different ways, and there are usually gaps (and/or errors) in every resource which are filled (corrected) by the others. My advice for everyone studying for anything is to take plenty of time (if possible) and try to study as much literature as is available, in as many forms as possible.
more over i have no time to refer multiple books
please buy my thing and then I'll have more money:
