The book is superb. Don't even think of taking the exam without it. Mock tests are also mind blowing.
But I guess you will have to wait till December before the book is released.

I highly recommend this book, it has ALL what you need to know to pass the exam, questions are the same style as the one in the new 1.4 real exam. Written in a very easy to understand English, warns you for tricks in the exam. Super.
If you have some more money, then I also recommends Mughal's book, It's the Bible so far in Java cert. for beginners.

There wasn't a free review as far as I know, it's only that kind Kathy sent me a chapter before my exam because I had problems finding good resource on Collections Framework and hashCode().
She also sent the mock exams to about 10+ for beta testing and I was one of them.
You can ask her if she will publish a sample chapter or so...

I was one of those 10 people who review her mock test. I am telling you that those questions really help me pass the exam.
Do a search for her name on Amazon.com and you can find out when the book will be publish.
