I love the quality of McGraw Hills books and specially the ones to prepare the Java Certify exams. I'm also a Kindle user with very good experiences reading books in Kindle versions.
But this one is completely useless. As you may know, Kindle books are actually a kind of HTML code (with labels like: '<'html'>', '<'body'>', '<'p'>', etc.). Well, Java ALSO use these kind of labels for its GENERIC parameters, so when you open this book in Kindle version you lose every generic argument (and there are a lot of them in the exams) because the book reader thinks they are HTML labels and don't show them. This problem also affects to EVERY comparation expression which uses the characters ">" or "<" or ">=" or "<="...
So, as you can check in the Free Sample here in Amazon, in the question 9 of the Assestment Test 1, you can find a code fragment like this:
6. List c0 = new List(); 7. List c1 = new ArrayList(); 8. List c2 = new...
I studied for the SCJP (OCJP) test for more than a year (on and off). I started with the SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 6 Exam 310-065 book, which was helpful. Once I finished, I felt that I needed more exam questions before taking the real exam, so I purchased this exams book. My exam scores (for the exams in this book) tracked at around 20-40% correct. Toward the end, I think I scored about 50%. According to this book, with such scores, I wasn't close to being ready to take the real exam. For this reason, I rescheduled the exam several times and I continued to study. The book told me I wasn't ready, right?
I finally got the courage to take the real exam. (My test voucher was about to expire, so I didn't have much choice.) The actual exam is *worlds* easier than the exams in this book. I scored an 83% on the real exam, but...
I passed the exam with 98% and while this book had a part to play, in the hind sight, I feel it wasn't money well spent, specially since I already had the SCJP Study Guide by the same Authors. I wanted to practice some more questions before the actual exam and based on the positive reviews I bought this book for that purpose. I must say the book tries to make it convenient to help the user reach to specific question(s) since it contains the same question with and with out answer and has a mapping of exam objectives and the questions. Of course, it can't escape the limitations of a book, but there are some things I wish the authors had made more exam like.
The actual exam tells you the number of correct options that you have to select, this book doesn't. Apparently, this was done to "help" the reader learn better, but I found it really frustrating because it makes the questions really hard to answer in the given time limit. This leaves you totally clueless as to how fast or...
