Thanks very much for the learning opportunity
Yes, I made it through the last chapter of the SCJP material, but I'm actually working *backwards* through your book (chapter by chapter). I had started with the Heller / Roberts book.
After reading on javaranch that the thread questions are some of the more difficult exam questions, I jumped right to chapter 9 in your book.
I plan to schedule my exam once I see how I'm doing on the mock exams (current results are confidential
Thanks for your well-written study guide!
