I bought and read Mehran Habibi's SCJD book before I downloaded the assignment. It is very explanatory and very well written. However, after downloading the assignment, I quickly discovered that it is very outdated for these new assignments. It could no longer be used a guide as promised in the book especially for the new buyers. I think a new edition of the book is required so that new and prospective buyers can enjoy the same guidance received by the old buyers that did the exams one or two years ago.

Thanks,

Omobola

I have one of the new assignments and I have found Max's book to be very useful. His example still addresses the issues that come up from the new assignments. I'm sure he's working on a new edition, but its likely to be for the 1.5 projects.

I also have Max's book, and I think it is a great roadmap for my project (B&S 2.2.3). I think the point to remember is that the project example in Max's book is only intended to be a guide, not a step by step instruction book for implementing the SCJD assignment.

In comparison to my version, Max's example makes the process easier by already implementing the database class. But other than that the differences are relatively subtle.

Omobola, what version of the assignment did you get?

Omobola,
The book is not to give an exact instructions on how to do the assignment. It gives an overall understanding of the requirements and how to go about them. Most importantly, it explains how to architect a project, and develop a good designed software that follow common design patterns.
