We're shooting to have the book to the printers in late July, in the stores around Sept 1 - we'll keep you posted as we get closer.

BTW - we've been talking a LOT to the publisher, and I think we've convinced them to keep the price at $50 - they wanted to go to $60 - which is what the earlier post listed, but I think we'll succeed in keeping it at $50 - once again, when we know for sure we'll post it here!

Thanks!

Bert

Q1. k&B book title is "Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java 2(study guide-exam 310-035 & 310 -027)", authors is kathy sirra and bert bates.

That's a harder question than you might think

We're at JavaOne this week - actually, I'm in the hotel, writing a chapter

Anyway - the 1.4 title is Sun Certified Programmer and Developer for Java 2 Study Guide.

The update for 1.5 will have a similar title - but we're waiting for Sun to clarify their new naming conventions for Java - that clarificaion is expected this week. We'll have the final title in a few days -

- Bert

It's hard to say what Amazon might do... although they won't get it before we're done

I think the key thing to make sure of is that you order the book for the 310-055, that's the number for the new exam -

as I said earlier, as soon as Sun announces its new Java naming standards, we'll post the official name of the book.

HTH,

Bert
