I've postponed taking 1Z0-810, because I want to read your guide book. Now that you have published this book, I can now schedule my 1Z0-810 exam. Thank you.
BTW, I read your wonderful book of exam guide for 803 and 804.
Make sure you checked exam objectives you need to study and you may skip: you're taking 1Z0-810, and book is fo 1Z0-809.
Welcome everyone and thank you so much for your messages!!
And yes, great tech editing on this book :-) . Thank you SO much to the tech editors!!!
Definitely check the objectives carefully depending on which exam you're taking.
p.s. No aliens in the book (that I know of)... but they are out there.
Thanks for all your warm welcomes! Please be sure to thank all of the folks on the technical review team. They did an incredible job, and the book is much, much better because of their efforts!
Also, thanks to all the ranchers who have taken time in the last few years to add errata entries to the JavaRanch errata list. We looked through all of the errata on the list, and there were many really good catches you guys made! (We didn't fix everything you guys mention, but we consider all of the suggestions on the list!)
