Hi Cameron,
<...Shipping to Asia seems to be the only time getting the books was problematic...>
I am from Asia. I managed to get the SCJA Study Guide from Amazon but the timeframe was a bit longer than usual.

Do you have any plan to release new edtions for both books?

Hi Jon Manson,

Like you, I am *aiming* for SCJA too for a start :=) Here are my recommendations:

If you know Java basic
do
{ SCJA Sun Certified Java Associate Study Guide (Exam CX-310-019) by Robert Liguori and Edward Finegan
SCJA Sun Certified Java Associate Study Guide for Test CX-310-019, 2nd Edition by Cameron, W McKenzie}
else
do
{ Head First Java
Murach Murach's Java SE 6: Training & Reference by Joel Murach
SCJA Sun Certified Java Associate Study Guide (Exam CX-310-019) by Robert Liguori and Edward Finegan
SCJA Sun Certified Java Associate Study Guide for Test CX-310-019, 2nd Edition by Cameron, W McKenzie}
endif

I believe the above are sufficient to pass SCJA ;=)

Hello,

May I know if Class B inherits from Class A, will the private methods in Class A be extended to Class B too?

Thank you.

Hi Peter,

Basically, I have 2 questions:

1) Java was introduced in January 1996 and it has been more than a decade in the market. Is it too late for a *structured developer* to get started in Java now?
2) Experienced developers are *encouraged* to move up the ladder (to non-technical role). Is it a *must* to move UP in order to *survive* in the IT world?

Thank you and I look forward to your opinions :=)

Hi Mark A. Lee,

I am from RPG, AS/400 environment too :=) I would suggest you to start with Head First Java followed by Muarch Java 6.

I feel it is better for procedural developers to pursue SCJA first and SCJP later. The OO codes can be tough for non-OO developers.
Good luck! Maybe can tell us what resources are you using :-)

Hi Chuu,

SCJA gives a good Java technologies overview (J2ME, J2SE, J2EE) and UML while SCJP is all about Java, in details. It really depends very much on what role that you would like to play. SCJA is good for someone who is just getting into SUN Java platform, like beginners or IT managers.

I hope the above helps!

Hello all,

I have compiled the following reading list as a preparation to SCJA:

Head First Object-Oriented Analysis and Design
Head First Java, 2nd Edition
SUN e-learning: WJB-110-SE6 Fundamentals of the Java Programming Language
SUN e-learning: WJTB-310 Java Platform Overview for Managers
SCJA Study Guide for Test CX-310-019, 2nd Edition

Please let me know if the above is sufficient. I am thinking of completing the above in 3 weeks (fulltime). I do not have any Java background and am with structured programming experiences.

Please advise and Thank you.
