    Funny writing style, Detail explanation (sometimes too much detail that could piss me off). Deep coverage of OCJP exam objectives. Challenging exercises and Good summaries at the end of each chapter. If you are going to take OCJP exam, this book is for you.

    I am a big fan of Kathy Sierra. I have read couple of books written by her. Head First Java, 2nd Edition Head First Servlets and JSP SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 6 Exam 310-065 I love the way she writes. Very simple language and easy to understand programs. I am coming back to SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 6 Exam 310-065 to brush up my concepts on generics and she has really done a great job. Simply awesome book.

    Good on concepts, but it could be good if it could be updated for latest java versions or add appendix for the same.

    This book...well, it means a lot to me. I taught myself programming out of it. I'd worked my way through Apress's SCJP guide, which was crap. Then I heard this book is THE guide to the exam, so I worked through it too. In my mind, not only is this book THE guide to SCJP, it's THE guide to Java itself, or even to programming and computer science to some extent.

I taught myself programming out of it. I'd worked my way through Apress's SCJP guide, which was crap. Then I heard this book is THE guide to the exam, so I worked through it too. In my mind, not only is this book THE guide to SCJP, it's THE guide to Java itself, or even to programming and computer science to some extent. Somehow it manages to teach to the test AND teach CS concepts incredibly thoroughly while being actually entertaining. It taught me what the heap is, what "pass by reference" means and why I should never modify an object that was passed to me (or if I do the passing, don't allow modifying to begin with). I haven't programmed full-time in Java for 5 years, but I still reach for it from time to time when I need a refresher on how garbage collection or multithreading works. Those things work the same way in most modern languages. Heck, even the multithreading APIs are much the same. Once I've read how to use `wait` and `join` in Java, which this book does a great job teaching, I can use them in Ruby, Python or what have you. And of course, when I *do* program in Java, this book is a godsend. I guess the book hasn't been updated for Java 7/8 because the SCJP exam has fallen out of favor with employers? That's really sad if that's the case. It's a great programming book, period, and it should live on. I hope the authors rework it into a general Java guide. For my part, I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn Java. The newer Java versions are mostly a superset of the old ones, so you won't be wasting your time.

    The book seems good at what it is designed for. Okay, my take while reading the book and doing the quizzes at the end of each chapter was that this had to be the most worthless certification on the planet. The quiz questions seemed more inclined to try to trick and misdirect than to really test anything of value, so I was pretty down on it as a result. But I had committed to taking the exam, so I prepared anyway. I read the book twice and did all the questions at the end, studying the answers ca The book seems good at what it is designed for.

But I had committed to taking the exam, so I prepared anyway. I read the book twice and did all the questions at the end, studying the answers carefully. I did each practice exam that comes with the book and scored 41% (after 1st book read), 57% (while reading the 2nd time), and 55% (after 2nd read of the book). I took the actual exam a couple days ago and scored 90%. The real exam had virtually none of the dumb trickery that the practice stuff had. So I'd say the book did a good job of tricking me into studying more than enough to pass the exam--I wish I had spent less time preparing, although I am happy with the result. If anything, the book's practice questions may be overly discouraging and difficult--they might cause some folks to give up on taking the real exam who ought to press ahead anyway.

    Here is the thing, want to prepare for the SCJP 6 exam? This is the book to read. It tackles each of the 38 objectives of the exam in great detail and a very neatly-organized 10-chapter structure. The book assumes no prior knowledge of the topics, just that you know your way around Java programming- compiling and running programs. The only chapter that might feel a bit messy is the I/O section (chapter 6), but if you know your way around Java I/O you will have no troubles with it.

    This is a very well-done certification-prep book. It is informative, has great sample test questions, and is often funny in a geeky, nerd sort of way (though the promised twist ending is something of a dud). The only complaint I had was that it needed more exercises. It gave great examples, but didn't have the reader actually try them out enough. If not for that, it would have been 5 stars. Recommended for anyone studying for the exam.

    Why you're reading the book matters. If it's to clear the exam it's the best that there is. of course, just learning from the book will do no good, but reading this will help you learn a few things. If you're reading this to "learn" java. You should understand that you're "learning" java not learning how to use java. It's just a different way of saying that you're learning the fundamentals in quite a detailed manner, which is good.

    The read was difficult, but it serves its purpose. Each subject is written thoroughly to a fault. Each time you read it, you will walk away with with a better perspective on Java. You're always guaranteed to walk away with something. The only problem is making it through! I pick a random chapter every now and then to re-enforce the concepts.

    The technical base for any java programmes. This completely covers the java part of what i think a java junior should know. The book itself is a well crafted manual that helps you absorb and structure all the 800+ pages showing that authors are not only good technicians but also awesome teachers. And as bonus you get to easily pass a certification. An example for any manual!

    This is the best book I have seen for Core Java concepts. Not recommended for beginners though, as it travels wide discussing Java concepts, but doesn't delve deeply into individual topics. A must-read if you feel you are at an intermediate level of Java programming.

    A truly fascinating and easy to read book about Java. I've finished it even though I don't plan to pass Java 6 examinations (Java 7 exams are available already). I liked the author's jokes a lot, and generally the way information is presented is quite easy to get.

    It was a long fight but I managed to finish it. Will see how it helps with the test. I actually liked the book. There is a lot of interesting information and authors are doing their best to put it in understandable way (with jokes once in a while).

    It's doing a good job at keeping content concise. I read it when I was in my early phase of career, but book was organized in such a way that it did not overwhelm me. I hope they come up with something equally good for Java 8.

    It is really easy to read and makes Java Fun LOL. It addresses topics in a more engaging manner. Realistic and challenging problems well explained. Each Chapter is focused to one topic and it is well written Overall, it is a five star book for anyone who'd love to get Cert'd
