How closely is this book tied to the spec.
It seems Sun has the tedency of setting one or two questions outside the spec like in the SCWCD exam spec.
Its not like one would not pass the exam with thorough preparation, even if he/she did not know this one two questions, but it is just that when a book becomes so tied to the spec it gets uncomfortable like the case of some books for the SCWCD exam.

Hi Anselm!
I think the exam sticks very closely to the spec. If anything, when we made the exam we decided to leave certain parts of the spec out of the exam.
I've got no option but to sell you all for scientific experiments. Or a tiny ad:
