Hi All.

Thanks for the welcome. I am equally excited to answer questions about my new book, the exam preparation and the exam itself.

This book provides multiple ways to learn and remember Java concepts and techniques - comic conversations, analogies, pictorial representation, flowcharts, UML diagrams, and lots of code. The book also gives insight into typical exam question mistakes and guides you to avoid traps and pitfalls.

The 'Twist in the Tale' exercises, sprinkled throughout the book, helps you to examine the code in the real exam with precision, so that you don't miss any important details. The book encourages you to see what's happening behind the scenes using the actual code from the Java API source - to get a better understanding of how Java's core classes and methods work. It helps you to understand the code rather than remember how it works.

I wish Good Luck to you for your exam and look forward to some interesting discussions.

With respect,
Mala Gupta

Welcome Mala,

I was wondering what was going on with this OCA 7 book. I am excited to see it is finally going to be released in a hard-copy format.

Also, I was one of the reviewers; when will I get my free copy mailed to me with my name in the 'thanks' section?

All the best,

Ted North
