Hi Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff!

First of all, congrats on the book!

I have a simple question: an inexperienced Java developer - but with wide experience in software development using Delphi - can get a Java SE 11 Programmer Certification studying through this book?

I really intend to follow this path and challenge myself to become a certified Java developer.

Thanks & Regards,

Cleo,
In chapter 1, we write that this shouldn't be your first Java book. So you should pick up an intro to Java book first and then read ours!

The reason is that a cert book is designed to help you pass the exam. Teaching the basics of Java at the same time is too much for one book.

The good news, it can be any version of Java. You can pick up a nice free Java 4 book like "Thinking in Java" to meet that pre-req!

Hey Jeanne! Thanks for your feedback.

Actually, I'm not a newbie in Java, I've already worked with Java same years ago.

And I have the "Thinking in Java" book in the press version. =)

Cleo,
In that case you meet the pre-req now . I saw your comment about expertise in Delphi and missed that part about you knowing some Java.

Hey Jeanne!

Good to know that I meet the pre-req.

Now is the time to improve my Java skills.
 
I want my playground back. Here, I'll give you this tiny ad for it:
