Thanks, Henry.

Its an honor to promote my book at JavaRanch.

I hope the book serves its purpose of preparing the readers for the exam. I wish them Good Luck.

To make this promotion interesting, I'll post questions or code for ranchers to answer. It will help them to understand the topics covered by the OCP Java Programmer certification.

With much respect,
Mala

Welcome Mala to your book promo week. I hope you have fun answering our questions.

I like your idea of setting some little challenges for us to play with. It's a nice touch.

It's currently the most used Java version. I am happy to see even though Java 8 has been released and books like this publishing for hungry-for-knowledge people like us. Java 7 has long way to go. OCP is what measured a Java programmer. So, having a perfect exam guide will help us to get through the exam and score high marks. Good luck with your promotion.

Welcome Mala once again,

It is a big pleasure to have you here. Thanks for coming.
Since your previous book gained a massive popularity, I'm not doubted it is going to happen the same or even better with this one.
Best luck.

Hi, Mala Gupta,

I want to say "Thank you!" for *unobtrusive* inspiration! I had a great experience and pleasure to read your previous Programmer I Certification Guide! Information was provided in a correct way and detailed enough to pass the exam with 98% score.
It's been 2 years ago. After I passed the certification I had a goal to complete the next step. I ordered the book of another author (yours, obviously, was not published by the time), then I had been struggling with errors and going back and forth with the author.
Finally, I haven't completed that path and that book is still gathering dust. The good news, I got from JavaRanch, reminded me about such uncompleted goal. As far as I'm aware of the quality of your work, I'm happy to see you keep going and publishing more material for Java Developers.
Thank you for such kind of inspiration in certification field!

Thanks,
Sergey
