Hi Javaranchers,
Sorry to intrude.. I am not here to discuss any Java topic per se, but want to talk about Kathy's book and SCJP exam in general. I just took the test today and passed with 88% score. Many thanks to K&B for writing such wonderful book..lucid and to the point. I can't say about other books, but if you read K&B's book and follow every word of it YOU WILL PASS THE EXAM, guranteed. I was averaging 80% or so with all those self tests but the exam was passed with 88%. I did not find any difference b/w all those self tests and the exam itself. I am a novice to Java ( but 5+ yrs with C++ ) and had made 2 passes of the book. The book is very focussed on getting you passed. I also read Khalid Mughal's book ..it's a good one too, teaches more than what you need for SCJP and the questions are far tougher.
Kathy & Bert <if you are reading this>,
You guys make all those pointers - including you in the will, accepting flowers and chocolates for teaching us well. Now here is a counter offer:
There are some spelling mistakes in the book.. and I will make one more pass to document all that and send you....an offer you cannot resist....only for $100 ONLY. Let me know :-)
best regards,
Prahalad

Prahalad -
Congratulations on a great score! We're happy the book helped.
Hey, we can't pay you in actual dollars, but we can provide a certain small amount of fame Everyone who is the FIRST to spot an error in the book will get their name included on the errata page and in future printings of the book..
-Bert
