Is this a great book to use as my primary Spring Certification Guide?  If not, what approach do you recommend that I take with your book to achieve certification?

I'd LOVE to tell you that it's the BEST book to prepare for certification! But, I can't honestly do that because I've not taken the certification myself! (I know...I should. And I actually gave myself Spring certification as a goal for the near future. Just didn't cross my mind until a month or so ago.)

But based on my lack of knowledge of what's on the exam, I'd think that the book would be good for most (if not all) of the scope of the certification exam. I just can't promise that.

If you become inspired, I would really also look forward to pre-ordering that MEAP Companion Set Guide!  

Thanks,

Charles

Depending on how comfortable you are with your newly learned Java skills, yes, I think it'd be a great book to start learning Spring. (Of course, I'm biased.)

Hi Charles,
If you would like to take Spring certification exam, first  I read Craig's Spring In Action 4th and 5th edition and Getting Started with Spring Framework 5.
You can also read Iuliana Cosmina's new study guide next and Ivan Krizsan's notes as a quick review https://leanpub.com/corespring5certificationindetail

I took Dominik Cebula's 8 modules of the spring professional certification tutorial on Udemy. The course is very very helpful.
Good luck.

Thanks Himai, but I just got a bomb dropped upon me.  From OCA-808, I have basically a month to pass 816 or I have to "start all over".  Is it as obvious, as I am currently thinking, to go for 816 IF I can crunch that in first?  Or would there be an advantage, that I'm not aware of, to first attempt to tackle Spring Cert first before 819?  Any parallels/correlations of attempting Spring first?  I had already started preparations for both, but obviously feel as if there is now a fork in the road with the announced 816 retirement.  

Thanks,
Charles

Hi Charles,
There is no prerequisite for the Spring professional certification exam.
That says you can take this Spring certification exam without pass other Java programming exams.
But you need to first know the basics of Spring framework before you can pass the exam.
