Hi,

For someone who has just passed OCA exam and right now learning advanced core java topics namely:
Collections, Generics and Multithreading.

Is the book enough for learning such topics or do I need to learn that topics before reading the book?

Thanks in advance.

You might do well to get the associate's exam book. I would have thought that basic threading, collections and generics are not advanced topics.

Since we're in the cert. forum I think we should focus more on what's in the exam objectives, rather than what's an "advanced" topic out in the world.

From the objectives perspective, Collections, Generics and Multithreading are part of the OCP exam.

So, START learning those topics using solely the book is enough for the exam?

I recommend you use the code in the book as a starting point for writing your own code, and seeing what compiles and what runs and what produces which results.

I think learning topics such as Multithreading or Collections from tutorial first would give me more confidence before starting to read the study guide of the exam.
