Early Testimony in Favor of Kathy and Bert's EJB Cert Book.
I was a psychology major at the University when I decided to study Physics instead.
So I remember a lot about cognitive theories on learning etc.
OK. Not as much as I would like.
But I have to EMPIRICALLY agree with the authors that their method of teaching is better than (certainly) so-called reference books, but also better than books with "Tutorial" as part of their title.
Although I just began it, I have verified that yes, their approach to teaching (and learning for the rest of us) is better that what I have seen before.
One thing is thinking that you know something, and another one is seeing it expressed in valuable PICTURES, which, BTW are worth 1024 words (as the authors state). And reading it again (whatever it is) also is of help.
In particular, I liked the analogy of the 'bouncer" or "bodyguard" which is the EJBObject in relation to the actual EJB with the business methods. I also loved the "princess" EJB in the pool! Is she single!?
Even though I already knew that, it was revealing to see it pictured like that. It does help the understanding of things.
I can't wait until the rest... I'm sure I will do good in the exam when I take it, thanks to this book.
Ta ta 4 now!
