I have just finished ch. 3.

Well I must say that was tough. After reading the chapter once I felt dazed , that was a week ago, since then I have broken the chapter up into manageable bits and spread it over the whole week.

Now I think it all makes sense, I will find out for sure in a minute when I do the Self Test at the end of the chapter...

wish me luck

Wish you all the best Rory.
K&B book can be fully utilized if read slowly and steadily. Do not rush and do not get disappointed with low scores. After a gap of solid 5 years I started java with K&B and in fact after every failure in mock tests or self test questions, my determination increased and now currently I'm in a position to face quite a good tough questions, though not yet ready for the final battle . So plan properly and write as many tests as you can.

Thanks Chandra

I scored 9 / 14 in the test at the end of Chapter 3.
I am still quite pleased though as I enjoyed the test and learnt a lot by doing the test.

The book is really good,

onto Chapter 4

but first I'll watch the football England vs Israel

KB have included lot of stuff explaining the concepts. But, once you are clear with the concepts it would be waste of time to re-read all that stuff. One imp tip is to write notes while studying the chapters. Just don't write every other point. For eg. read one paragraph and try to identify that most imp point. Apart from this, try writing lot of programs and that's essential. Here, you've to help yourself. What kind of programs you write? What's the task that you wish to accomplish through your program? Such things matter... Another tip... try getting some exercises from some book so that you could practice them again and again. Hmm..may be..from the free Java tutorials!?
