Hello Maurice Naftalin Sir,

I want to know how this book is different from Java: the complete reference, Ninth edition by Herbert Schildt, in approach towards learning lambda exceptions.
I am not good in lambda exceptions, may be i need a lot of practice.

Does this book contain practice questions too at the end of the chapter?

Hello Linkon

I haven't read Herb Schildt's book, so I can't really say. But a quick read of the table of contents shows that it gives one chapter to the Stream API, as against the four chapters and 140 pages that it gets in my book. So Herb's book, which I'm sure is great in its intended purpose – covering the whole of the Java language – can't really go into the kind of detail that I'm interested in. You ask specifically about exceptions. I deal with exceptions in stream code in some detail in Chapter 5. I'm not sure where or whether Herb deals with them.

The book doesn't have practice questions. But it does have worked examples, in which you are invited at various points to stop and try to work out for yourself where the example is going next.

Regards
Maurice
