I passed the SCJP exam today with a 76%. Not a great score but I had only been studying seriously for a week and a half (been doing Java web dev for 1+ years). My only comment is that the RHE book (I had second edition) was not detailed enough. Just comparing the book to the Exam Objectives, it seemed like a lot was missed. Thanks for everybody's help.

Corey-
Thanks for the validation. I talked to a couple people at work and we all came to the same conclusion. I definately think that the RHE book (and others) should have a "Note" related to this topic. Thanks again!
I can convert (not cast) a long to a float. The storage size for a float (32bits), however is smaller than a long (64bits). I realize that you can store very large numbers in a float, but if every single number in my long is significant, won't I lose some precision? Why isn't this a cast?
long l = 12345678901234567890 . . . ;
float f = l;
