hi folks, I'm preparing the SCJEA 1. I found these books were mostly recommended in this forum. But I can not find them in my country. Can anybody give me the URL where to download these books? The list is below. 1.Design Patterns: by Erich Gamma 2.UML Distilled: by Martin Fowler, Kendall Scott, Grady Booch 3.Java 2 Certification Training Guide : by Jamie Jaworski BTW, what's the Blueprint refer to? J2ee specs 1.1 or Java Pet Store1.3?(sorry for my ignorant question) Thanks for your time! Jack
Jack, I don't think they are free. They are 2 out of three of the most popular books sold, so of course the publisher won't let that go out free. I think you need to go to bookpool.com or amazom.com. I think bookpool will probably be cheaper. Mark
Oh, and here's a link to Jaworski's mock exams. There is a review questions protion that gives you a question, then answers it and gives you an explanation. It is pretty good. http://www.jaworski.com/java/certification/ Mark
thanks herve, you r the real Santa Claus I have already found the first two resource.The third one you recommend is really enoungh for exams? If that's true, it will save me a lot of money. Any other comments would be appreciated.Thanks! jack
Yes. the Together UML link is really enough. Exam has only 3-4 simplistic questions. Jaworki questions are not architecture scenarios. It is interesting reading for legacy systems. Where can we find good exam questions ? I would say going through Javaranch Forum (september-october)and others links.... IMHO, you just need to have a global knowlegde of each SCEA objectives..not deeply. Understand the concept not learn by heart is important !
