Hi all,

I understand that Andrew's book "should" be out (or at least available at amazon) by the 7th of this month (this Friday). But i'm sure i seen a post by Andrew that said something about that it may go into november until it actualy comes out. I did a search but can't find this post. Can anyone confirm this?

Also, while i'm on the topic, does anyone know if choosing the 2 to 4 day courier option actually make a difference? Because i was reading "something" about it on Amazon but didn't quite understand it. I know it said that it depends on availability - in this case, if i order it today, does it mean that it will take 2 to 4 days to be "received" or 2 to 4 days to be "shipped" after amazon receives it? And, does being in a foreign country (other than U.S) have a big impact on the 2 to 4 day courier service?

Conclusion:
(options)
9 - 36 buisness days
6 - 22 buisness days
2 - 4 buisness days

Do they usually stick to this? And does it mean days to be shipped or days to be recieved ()after they receive it?

Thanks in advance,
Marzo.

They must have updated it recently - it states November 14 now.

APress's page isn't specific:
SCJD Exam with J2SE 5, Second Edition

If you are really in a hurry keep an eye on Apress's
E-books in case they decide to make it available. You'd get it as early as possible and then you could go for the cheapest shipping of the printed version, putting the difference towards the e-book (which is 50% of the price of the printed version).
