Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Revised and updated by one of the co-developers of the (310-035) Programmer exam, this edition offers complete coverage of the Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2 exam objectives and newly added, complete coverage of both portions of the Sun Certified Java 2 Developer's exam. More than 250 challenging practice questions have been completely revised to closely model the format, tone, topics, and difficulty of the real exam. An integrated study system based on proven pedagogy, exam coverage includes step-by-step exercises, special Exam Watch notes, On-the-Job elements, and Self Tests with in-depth answer explanations to help reinforce and teach practical skills.

Praise for the author:

"Finally! A Java certification book that explains everything clearly. All you need to pass the exam is in this book."

--Solveig Haugland, Technical Trainer and Former Sun Course Developer

"Who better to write a Java study guide than Kathy Sierra, the reigning queen of Java instruction? Kathy Sierra has done it again--here is a study guide that almost guarantees you a certification!"

--James Cubeta, Systems Engineer, SGI

"The thing I appreciate most about Kathy is her quest to make us all remember that we are teaching people and not just lecturing about Java. Her passion and desire for the highest quality education that meets the needs of the individual student is positively unparalleled at SunEd. Undoubtedly there are hundreds of students who have benefited from taking Kathy's classes."

--Victor Peters, founder Next Step Education & Software Sun Certified Java Instructor

"I want to thank Kathy for the EXCELLENT Study Guide. The book is well written, every concept is clearly explainedusing a real life example, and the book states what you specifically need to know for the exam. The way it's written, you feel that you're in a classroom and someone is actually teaching you the difficult concepts, but not in a dry, formal manner. The questions at the end of the chapters are also REALLY good, and I am sure they will help candidates pass the test. Watch out for this Wickedly Smart book."

-Alfred Raouf, Web Solution Developer, Kemety.Net

"The Sun Certification exam was certainly no walk in the park but Kathy's material allowed me to not only pass the exam, but Ace it!"

--Mary Whetsel, Sr. Technology Specialist, Application Strategy and Integration, The St. Paul Companies
