Hi Everyone,
I passed SCJP 1.4 yesterday with 95%. While I did use some of Dan Chisholm Topic Exams, Marcus Greens Mock Exam and a few other resources, my preparation was based basically only on the Kathy and Bert book.
While you, Kathy and Bert, must have heard enough of how wonderful the book is, I would like to add my appreciation to your never-ending list. Apart from the fact that it was entertaining to read due to the light-hearted quips-filled writing style, what I really found commendable was that where the single-minded objective was to cover topics as required for passing the exam, so that the topics were in a way very fragmented - still the matter was presented in a very lucid manner and did not seem fragmented at all. This is anyway a commendable thing for any teaching material and in this case even more-so. Goes to show that the two of you must be really good instructors/teachers!
Regards
Vani
SCJP (95%)

Vani -
WOW !!! 95 % !! Yikes, that's good!
We're glad the book helped, and thanks for your kind words, ( you're making us blush ).
We just finished our beginner's Java book (which you obviously don't need), but we're gonna start cranking on our EJB cert book next week! So - if you're thinking about going after Sun's soon to be announced EJB certification - our book ought to be ready about the same time you can actually take the exam!
(It's an amazing coincedence ! ).
-Good luck,
Bert and Kathy
