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.
