Is this book still useful for current Spring Professional Certification?

Hi all,

I am planning on taking the Spring Professional Certification. This covers the Spring framework v5.0. The book Pivotal Certified Professional Spring Developer Exam: A Study Guide  focusses on Spring 4.3.

Is this book still advisable to read or is Spring in Action, which is updated to Spring v5.0, a better read?

Regards,

Bart

Some parts of the book will still be relevant, the core topics like spring dependancy injection, bean lifecycle, aspect oriented programming, testing, model/view/controller, REST web services.  Other old topics which were dropped for the newer certification, can just be ingored, technologies like spring remote method innovation, SOAP web services for example.  

In summary I'll use both books along with Spring Boot in action.   And also the official documentation which is always very good.

Good luck.

Thanks Peter for the update. Could you send me a link to the official documentation, I haven't been able to find those.

Spring Docs main page
All the documentation for every project

The framework is large, and so split into many different projects.  So it will be a case of looking at the documentation for a specific technology which is a objective on the exam.  Here is the core spring documentation;  The latest core Spring reference guide
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
