Is it a tutorial to subjects in java, or it is a reference book?

The book is not a reference book - and not a pure tutorial. A tutorial to me is one that has topics presented much like classroom exercies. With that said, I've written the book in an easy to read style - explaining tech stuff in every day terms then in tech terms - covering topics that someone starting out in Java needs to know. There are simple examples for each topic - I don't like it when an author illustrates many topics in one example. And there is a quiz at the end of each chapter and a 100 question test at the end of the book - so it still has an academic flavor.

What are the quizzes about? Are they like questions or exercises? If they're questions, are answers included?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
