I'm thinking of doing the upgrade exam from java 6 to 8.

I liked the Sierra/Bates book when I did the java 6 exam, so I thought I'd stick with those authors.

Could anyone with experience of that book comment on a couple of questions?

Assuming I have a good grasp of the material required for the java 6 exam, is it reasonable to start with volume II? Or, would I find that volume II assumed knowledge of some post java 6 feature that had already been explained in the first volume?

Secondly, does the book contain a checklist of what pages/chapters need to be mastered for the upgrade exam? The preview at Amazon cuts off at the point where my guess is that any such table would be.

Who among you feels worthy enough to be my best friend? Test 1 is to read this tiny ad:
