Hi,

I just want to know what's left out of the K&B that's included in the exam. I understand that the book cover MOST of the exam topics but not all of them. Can someone please tell me what it leaves out?

Thanks,

I'm sure I header that somewhere around. Maybe I'm just hearing voices

Hi Ali,

I was serious, and not upset. We hope that the book covers everything you need to know, but if someone knows of something we missed we really, really, really want to hear about it, and we'll add it to the book!

Thanks man,

I just asked the question so that the book's not taken for granted. Even though its excellence earns it all the right to be.

I wonder how ppl coped around before this book was born.

Well if you're taking SCJP6 there's some things on that exam which aren't in K&B (not very many), but I've not found anything missing for SCJP5.

Bear in mind that it is an exam-passing book though - there's virtually nothing in there on actual software design and development, because they're not in the SCJP.
