Seems a bogus account to discredit Kathy and Bert's book. I doubt we'll hear much more from the user.
Hmmm... read my posts again. I basically said:
1. The K&B book is sufficient to pass the exam
2. Everyone pretty much knows it
How is this discrediting Kathy and Bert's book? If anything, it's a rave review!
The point, (since you seemed to miss it completely) is this: Does having a book -- a single source of information -- that allows someone to pass the exam cheapen the overall value of the certification?
Here's a thought experiment for you -- take a Java newbie, give him/her the K&B book, and 1 to 2 months to study. If he fails, I pay his fee. If he passes, you pay the fee.
Any takers? I thought not.
