i just browsed a simulation java exam in this forum; its dryness contrasts a lot with the way you write.

do you believe that someone with java passion will be more produtive even if ignoring some detais, since any google or good book will quickly fix it?

Hey Miguel,

Our goal with every book is to take a hard topic and make it as easy as possible to learn. That's our goal, I'm certainly not saying that we achieve it. :roll: In general, we believe that if you're enthusiastic about a topic you'll learn it better, but even so some teaching approaches work better than others, regardless of the learner.

HTH,

Bert
