Title: Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java 2 Study Guide (Exam 310-035 & 310-027)
Publisher: McGraw-Hill Osborne Media
Authors: Kathy Sierra, Bert Bates
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A key to success...


I used this book to study the testing format for the SCJP exam together with The Java Programming Language and The Java Language Specification for details where I needed them. After reading this book and working all the examples and taking all the practice exams, I felt comfortably prepared to take the Java Programmer exam, which I passed today with 95%.
I'm convinced that if you know Java at least to the point of being able to write simple programs, then this is the only ***exam study guide*** you need.
That said, I highly recommend supplementing the study guide with a good tutorial -- either a book or the free ones from Sun -- and a fair amount of time at the keyboard typing, running, breaking and fixing code. Then, spend a few days or weeks taking practice exams to get familiar with the types of things you'll see on the exam. (By the way, this book comes with two electronic exams and a lot of end-of-chapter questions, all of which I thought were very close to the real thing.)
Thanks for a great book, Kathy and Bert (and all the editors and reviewers who assisted K & B).

Definitely a 7 out of 5 stars - great code examples


This is a must have Access/VBA book because it includes code that you will not find elsewhere. I also like the Access 2000 Developer's Handbook, vol 1, and 2. The 2 Wrox books are also great.
This book has code examples that just aren't covered in the other books. To be fair, the other books also have code examples that this one doesn't have either.
I particularly like their coverage of the API functions that work well with Access.
I highly recommend this book.
