Hi guys, I have a quick question and need you suggestions. Since your 1.5 book is not released, I am going to read 1.4 book first for SCJP 1.5. After the 1.5 book comes out, I will just read the news chapters. Could you tell me what chapters in your 1.4 book is not necessary or important for SCJP 1.5? Looking forward to your reply.

Best Regards.

Jon

BTW, your 1.4 book is one of my favorite IT books. Very helpful and lots of fun...

Hi Jon -

Oh man, we're so close now!

Anyway, we took only about 15 pages out ot the 1.4 book! (We took out bit shifting stuff and Math class stuff). Other than that we added about 300 pages of new stuff, so the 1.4 book covers about 2/3 of what's on the tiger exam.

We'll have an 'in-stores' date very, very soon - we're down to some final edits!

hth,

Bert
