I haven't read the Complete reference yet, but I believe it will be better than Developer Notebook because it is too breif.

I mean the complete reference will be better.

For the developer notebook, it is good for beginner level, but I feel it is too simple (not indepth) to cover the objectives for Tiger exam.

Thus, if you got the complete reference book, you might go for it.

The new complete reference include the following topics of j2se 5.0 :
1] generics
2] autoboxing
3] enumeration
4] metadata ( annotation )
5] the enhance for loop
6] static import
7] varargs ( variable length arguments )
8] the formatter and scanner classes .
9] the concurrent API

This all we have to read for beta , or should I ask is there an thing else in the beta & not in the list ...

Is Something removed from 1.4 objective for beta or they will be in beta ...
