Hi Gandhirajan -

This book includes thorough coverage of Java topics on the exam. Each chapter starts with a list of exam objectives mapped to section numbers, followed by sample questions and exercises that reinforce key concepts. You’ll learn techniques and concepts in multiple ways, including memorable analogies, diagrams, flowcharts, and lots of well-commented code. You’ll also get the scoop on common exam mistakes and ways to avoid traps and pitfalls.

You can download a sample chapter of this title from the publisher's website to know the style and approach used in the book, using the link manning.com/gupta3 (screenshot included).



These threads include information on 'Twist in the Tale' exercises (my favorite!) and images used in the book:

With much respect,

Hi Mala,

I hope to know your opinion, Should anyone with little experience in Java to start with tutorial such as "Java the complete reference ninth editon" or "Core java tenth edition" before starting from the certification study Guide book ? or there is no need to the tutorials for the exam preparation and it is enough to start from the certification study Guide book ?
