Hi,
I did not receive CD with the K&B book. It is Indian edition.
On asking the vendor he replied it does not come with the CD.
Is it so?
I needed the practice exam that comes with it.
What all is on the CD?

Thanks in Advance!
-Rohit

I bought the book in Delhi, And have got the CD along with it but mine is the 1.5 book. So just check whether he is offering a CD with 1.5 version or not, If not,there's certainly something fishy.

I'll check with my editor - In the US, both versions of the book come with a CD, and we certainly hoped that non-US publishers would include a CD too.

In http://osborne.onlineexpert.com/elearning/ you can get another practice exam for free. It's different but I think hardness is similar.

Thanks for the prompt reply! Appreciate that!
On the cover it mentions a free CD inside but there was no CD.
I am not sure if this was specifically my case or otherwise.

Thanks in advance!

Can anyone tell me why the comparison of logn and float yields true in this code,even when float is widened into double and not long


Long l = new Long(129);
float f = 129.0f;
if(l == f)
{
Short s = 15;
Boolean b; // insert code here
b = s instanceof Number;
System.out.println(b);
}

Hi Bert,
Please kindly make a note that the missing CD is an exceptional case! I checked with some of my friends and they did get the CD with a similar edition of the book.

Thanks & Regards!
