Hi All,
I have passed my Java Exam yesterday.
The result is delighting me(62%),since I expect it
to be passed only as I prepared it in a short time.Anyway, I would like to sharpen my skill
and knowledge from time to time.
Here,I would like to say "thank you Javaranch" and "thank you for Kathy and Bert who have produced a good book."
Regards,
Peter

Bert,
I have taken about three weeks to study the whole
book from chap 1 to chap 9.When I faced doubt to
questions at the back of the chapter, I always
try to prompt the answer in my PC and use the
forum as mean to help me for further understanding.
Currently, I am planned for SCJD in next few months later.I am not well verse in RMI and some
technologies.Should I buy a new book for each
technology or any other alternative to pick
up the technologies like JDBC,Swing,RMI....etc
which is essential for the Developer assignment.
How depth should know about each technology,e.g
JDBC.
Any suggestion are welcome. Many thanks.

Peter -
For my money Max Habibi's book IS the one to get to study for SCJD. You may discover that you need additional help on a few details here and there, but his book should be your baseline.
As we've said before, we DON"T recommend our book if you're ONLY interested in the SCJD exam, because while we talk about that exam, it is not the focus of our book, SCJP is!
Having said that, if you already have our book, then I believe that reading the SCJD section will get you asking the right questions. And, if you can compare your design to our book, and honestly say that you've covered all the questions that we ask, you'll be in good shape.
One example I have is that if you read the posts on the SCJD forum, you'll hear a lot of people say that they lost a lot of points on the GUI portion, which surprises them. So, our book DOESN'T tell you how to write Swing GUI's, but it DOES tell you how the GUI should look and behave from the end user's perspective.
Good luck and thanks for the info!
-Bert

Congratulation!
In my point of view, you need to know what wrong in the examination question and find out the correct answer, that is what I prefer you to do.You will get more knowledge better than focus on the result.
