Hello Craig,

My question is about the certificate:

does this book cover the whole matters of the certificate? Could be used as a guide to take the exam  with no taking the Pivotal course ?

does it worth get the certification?

Thanks in advance.

The Spring in Action book will help, but I don't think it covers the whole content of the core exam.  The thing about the exam is that when I took it it covered some of the lesser used technologies (JMX, RMI).  There is however a certification book; Certified Spring Developer.   I recommend the actual course from Pivotal, but it's expensive.

No worries, still think that the Spring in Action would be worth reading (I'm going to do so).

The certification books tend to cover a lot of material quickly as the exam is (well was) based on a lot of subjects.  The exam guide is to be found here; spring developer certification exam.  I've just had a quick look at the new exam subjects and it looks like they have dropped the older technologies (like; XML configuration [yuk], JMX, RMI, SOAP) and added some more relevant newer ones like spring boot, and spring data.  

 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
