Hi, Jeanne & Scott,

I am (used to be?) Java 8 certified programmer. I skipped 11 but now I want to get back on the horse with 17.

Can I jump straight to your 17 guide or do I need to go through 11 first?

Thanks,

You can definitely jump straight to 17.  The new Java 17 book includes most of the topics from Java 11, as well as new features of Java 17 like pattern matching, switch expressions, and sealed classes.

I have study guide 11 and it's amazing. I use it not only for certification. When I have a question about a subject, I find it there. I hope this new publication has the same quality.

Hugs,

Celso

Thanks Celso, glad you like it!

I think it's higher quality actually.  Because they combined two exams into one between Java 11 and Java 17, we did the same with our books.  The new book is a streamlined version of our two previous Java 11 books because we were able to cover topics all at once, instead of sometimes splitting the material between two exams.

Thank you Mike!

If I don't get my copy of javaranch, I will definitely buy the new edition.
