I can guarantee you, based on helping write the SJCP 5.0 exam, and being a technical reviewer for their book.

It covers 100% of all the objectives from the exam. You will not miss anything.

Hi,

I recently ordered this book at Amazon.com and waiting for the shipment, but after seeing the message of Mysha Ahmed I got the doubt and went to the table of contents, but couldn't see any topic covering Java 5(like generics,autoboxing etc), could anyone tell me is this the right book for SCJP(Exam 310-055)

Thanks in advance,
Deepa

Personally I like the Head First series as well.

Learning or explaining with pictures works for me.

I bought the book from amazon, it's the 1.5 version. But if I click on the book image on amazon from the link above, it shows the table of contents of 1.4 version of the SCJP book. But otherwise the book information is correct (use ISBN).

To be sure, you can check out other online bookstores using the ISBN, e.g.:
Barnes and Noble
