    Hi Paul and Joseph...and welcome to the JavaRanch.
    I took a look at Amazon about your book but I was anable to find a detailed desciption.
    Is there a place where we could have a Table of Content or something like that ?
    Does your book cover part I and Part II of the certification, or only part I ??
    What is the difference between your book and the one from Sun (
    SCEA Study Guide.

    I am sure, i do not have luck to win this ..
    But I want to ask you few questions
    1) First, is this book available in India??
    2) Does your book include mock exams? How many questions
    3) Does this book give any practical examples for important concepts.. This is very important for us, while we actually use these concepts in real time scenario.
    4) Is this book covers Part II and Part III also
    If this book covers some sample case study , it will be really good..

    I have couple of questions to the Authors.
    Do you think this book is enough to get through the SCEA certification ?
    If not, do you suggest in your book any additional readings to get through the certifications ?
    Also does this book include any mock exams ?
    Thanks.

    Don't ask questions here!!! They aren't eligible to win. When I pick the winners, if the program picks a post from this thread I skip it and go to the next selected post. So say "Hello!" here and then start a whole new thread with your questions.
    And a big welcome to Paul and Joseph. I hope you have fun this week.

    What's the difference between J2EE and J2SE? Are they just different Java libraries?

    Hi Paul and Joseph welcome to JavaRanch.
    Hope you will have nice time in the Ranch !!
    Can you provide some more details about the book ?
    I see that it comes with the CD ROM version as well. I love to read on the computer screen rather than a paper book ( may be an exception!)
    Welcome again!
    Raju.
