It usually happens in most of the interviews that they ask more of syntax based questions rather than concept based ones. This will be easy for a guy who has very good memory or has constantly used over years.In worse case they have a set of questions to ask with answers and expect the same to be told to them.
A book like yours should focus also on that aspect. See both sides of the coin.If the person has good conceptual knowledge syntax is just got to do with google.Even if he is a master of syntax and has no conceptual knowledge, he will end up deisigning a bad application.
I have seen many cases where the candidate jumps from company to company in 6 months just because he does very well at interviews but at ground level does not deliver the promise.

This book has lots of code snippets and examples. No matter what book you read one cannot replace the power of hands on experience.
