Thanks Vincent,
I still prefer the paper format though. This way I can read and carry with me everywhere.

Pradeep,
Q1. I'd like to be positive about winning however I have a tendency to not win when I need something ;-)
Q2. Yep i maintain levteck.com, I use the site more as a repository than anything and I wish I could spend more time making it better but with a one year old, time is a rare commodity.
Cheers,

Thank you Vincent.
I need to add a formal testing portion to our project. I'll be looking for your book. Thanks again.

Vincent,
Do you have to read all chapters of your book in sequence to get up to speed on testing?
Also, are there chapters that cover special subjects would not necessarily be found in an average project?
Thanks,

I have a list of mock exams on my site that will keep you busy for a while,
You'll find the links to Marcus and Dan's test in there as well.

Hi everyone,
I posted my study notes on my website. (long file, takes ~15 sec to load on 56k modem)
The code snipets in green have been cut and pasted from the compiler so pretty much everthing should be free of errors but again let me know if you run into problems.
Although sometimes small, those snipets most often represent full working programs with everything needed to run on their own.
I did not have the time to finish all the code samples so feel free to send me your similar full working code snipets and I will update the file.
Also, I did not indicate which subject is part of the SCJP 1.2 or 1.4 exam so feel free to send me your notes or your review and add on for the 1.4 that I did not cover.

Kathy,
Thank you for your reply.
I just downloaded the first chapter and it reads quite fast. I'll be placing an order for your book.
Hope you get enough support for it to motivate you to continue with other java subjects using the same style.
Cheers,
Mario
Hi all,
I recently started working on a project that will require EJB knowledge. 75% of the code is complete and I'm working on a billing module to add on.
My question is: Are there sections of the Head First book that someone could skip in order to learn the basic about EJB without learning all the details usually required for a certification exam? i.e. are the different chapter fairly independant or do you need to read all pages in sequence to get a good grip on EJBs?
Thank you.
Mario
P.S. any tips on learning EJBs in the shortest amount of time would also be welcome
Hi all,
I have updated the list on my site and indicated which exam provide complete solutions vs simple answers.
As always, if you know of other helpful resources for the test, let me know and I'll be happy to post them.
Also found a book on the new exam 1.4. by Kathy Sierra. The book is due in Jan 2003.
I placed a link to it on my main page:

You can probably find what you want from one of the exam I listed on my site.
Good Luck
A method declared private can not be accessed outside of that class and can not be overridden however the name can be used again in a subclass and the method will be consider completely separate from the one in the base class and will not be overriding it.
in the same line of thoughts,
You can declare a static method with the same signature in a subclass but it will be hidden. Dynamic lookup is not used when invoking a static method.
