Does anyone know approximately when this test will be publicly available and out of beta?
Usually, the exam will be released 2 months after the beta exam period.
Is there going to be a "Head First" book for this exam?
I dont think so, as Bert and Kathy have lots of books on hand.
The servlets book is first - it's coming soon - we're really tired
We have some GREAT co-authors leading the charge on Patterns - it's in progress PHP has been postponed a bit Final cut is 'slightly' postponed - coming soon HF Flash is being worked on by another GREAT co-author - probably will be a little slower HF Statistics is being considered HF SCMAD is being considered SCJWSD is fairly low on the 'possible' list SCEA is very low on the 'possible' list
