Howdy! This exam will not change until August, at the very earliest. The new web specifications are expected to be announced at JavaOne, and the exam changes will be made from that. So, nothing will happen until *after* JavaOne, and it takes some time after that for the test to go through beta and then be released.
The best book seems to be the Manning book! I would stay away from the Sybex book.
good luck,
Kathy
(hey, did McGraw-Hill ever get a book to you? They were supposed to send one out to you, but I haven't heard anything

No it never reached me, I don't know if this is about me being in Egypt or is it that it got lost on the way...
I also sent you several messages to your e-mail both the wicked and the sun... but received no reply... was waiting for your new book chapters for review I thought you were on vacation in Hawai or something but I found your posts here... so I thought maybe my address was blocked or something... anyway...
So will manning book still be useful after the changes they will make to the objectives? When is the SunONE?

JavaOne is in June 10-13 in SanFransisco (you'll probably see the snazzy yellow banners through out the forums).
I'm sure *most* of the Manning book will still be viable for the new exam. But its impossible to tell til they release the new objectives...
It's an excellent book. I used it to pass my SCWCD. I fully recommend it.
