This week's book giveaway is in the Programmer Certification forum. We're giving away four copies of OCP Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 11 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-815 and have Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff on-line! See this thread for details.
Does anyone know if Kathy Sierra and or Bert Bates is planning on writing a book for Java SE 11 Programmer II test ( 1Z0-817 )?? Or is there another forum where I can ask? If so, is there a time frame?
Jeanne, thanks for responding. I'm definitely for the quickest route possible to achieve my certification. So to be clear. You are suggesting that if I take the Enthuware practice questions, alone I can be successful at passing the Java 11 programmer II certification? Sounds great, but doesn't a text book provide more details about the how/why that practice exams may not? I will say when I received my first certification. I took the whizlabs exams and it was so close to the real test it was great and made the test a lot easier. However, since I had studied via text book I wasn't sure if how easy it was was a result of studying from the book. So please advise if you think I can take the practice exams and if they provide explanations as the whiz labs did then maybe you are right. I should just dive in with the practice exams. To be honest, I thought that was sort of like cheating, then I thought to myself "if I'm learning whats new in Java whether it be via text book or test, when its all said and done, I know what I need to know so thats not cheating". I thought of buying Oracle online class to prepare for the exam. The one I would need is $495 if I'm Java 8 certified and if you are below 8 then its $1695. I know you are busy writing the text book. Please advise. Also, any idea on ETA on your text book for the java 11 programmer II 1Z0-817.

I don't think that is what Jeanne meant at all. She said it is faster to create questions; she didn't say that you would pass your exam faster if you use Enthuware. There is one book available, but I think that is only for tthe part I test (maybe 1Z0‑815; I can never remember the numbers).

Campbell, You are correct. Reading too fast. Thanks. Looks like I may have to use the Oracle online tools. Buying a text book and studying is a whole lot cheaper.
