Hi!
I'd like to know how much is this book marked by current technological achievements and trends. Does it depend on them at all? In other words, could the book have been made in XX century?

Hi everyone,
I'm looking for manuscript reviewers for "OCP Java SE 7 Programmer II Certification Guide" by Mala Gupta. We are primarily interested in reviewers who have taken this exam - regardless of if they failed or succeeded.

The review is internal and it consists of reading available chapters (roughly two thirds of the book), trying out source code examples and answering a list of questions from our editors. It will start in a couple of days and last two or three weeks.
Reviewers will get a complimentary book copy and be acknowledged in the book when it gets published.
If you'd like to participate or need more information, post here or message/email me.


Thanks!

The review of our manuscript - OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I Certification Guide - was successful and thanks again to all JavaRanch members who participated.

(the old thread is here: https://coderanch.com/t/584773/java-programmer-SCJP/certification/OCA-Java-SE-Study-Guide )

Now we are looking for somebody who has recently taken the OCA Java SE7 exam to review the updated manuscript. We are looking for someone who has within the last month or two taken the exam to tell us if what we cover in our book is sufficient.

Please contact me (email is in the profile) or post here.

Thanks!

Hi everyone,
I'm looking for manuscript reviewers for two books for absolute beginners in programming. I don't think there are such among forum members, but maybe you have a family member or a friend who would be interested.

1. Programming with Scratch
The book can be used to teach the concepts of programming to upper-middle and high school students. It can also be used for an “introductory” programming course at the college level.
Practitioners may also be interested in this book. Scratch has millions of users worldwide and the number is constantly growing. Teachers who want to create engaging learning environments for their students will benefit from this book. The book also has extensive international market. Scratch has built-in support for many languages and is used by many users across the globe.
The book can also be used to teach programming concepts for non computer science majors. Instructors can select what chapters to include in their courses based on the learning objectives of these courses and the level of the students.


2. Hello World! 2nd Edition
Hello World! provides a gentle but thorough introduction to the world of computer programming. It's written in language a 12-year-old can follow, but anyone who wants to learn how to program a computer can use it. Even adults.
Though the concepts and ideas presented apply to any programming language, Hello World! uses the easy to learn Python programming language. Python is free, and is available for different platforms, including Windows, Linux, and Mac. Hello World! covers all the basic concepts of computer programming, including memory, looping, decisions, input and output, data structures, graphics, and many more. It then applies them to fun, interesting topics like computer graphics, game programming, and simulations.


The review is internal and it consists of reading available chapters, trying out source code examples and answering a list of questions from our editors. Reviewers will get a complimentary book copy and be acknowledged in the book when it gets published.
If you know someone who would participate, or need more information, post here or message/email me.

Thanks everyone. I have enough reviewer candidates now, even had to turn a few down. Sorry about that.

Saloni, I expect the book to be available this Autumn but I will post again if I get different or more precise information from our production team.
Hi Ted & Pinki
I need to contact you by email so as I said - please send me an email (my email address should be visible in my profile) or a PM with your email address.
The technical review is basically carefully reading a computer book and answering 20-30 questions about it, with some extra time devoted to trying out source code examples. It can take from an evening or two to many days, especially if you choose to make a lot of comments on your own. We would naturally like the reviewers to invest as much time in the review as they can spare, but we will also find value in a short or partial review.
Saloni & Leonid, I'm glad you're interested. Please send me an email (my email address should be visible in my profile) or a PM with your email address.
