Everyone that puts their hands on the SCJA Certification Guide, from scja.com, comments on two things right away: 1) how entertaining the book is, and 2) how easy it is to read. "I couldn t believe it! I read through the first three chapters in one sitting, and those three chapters made me want to read three more!" Those are the types of comments we are flooded with when people finally get their hands on their SCJA Certification Guide.
And there are very good reasons as to why this Java book is so readable, and so enjoyable, not the least of which is the fact that the entire book was written, from start to finish, by one, and only one, author. The one-author-book is a rarity in the technical world these days, but its significance can't be understated. From start to finish, the author makes the objective of this book clear: to get the reader certified, FAST. With one, single, focused author penning the pages, this book reads like a single, clear and contiguous thought. The fragmentation seen in so many books, written by multiple authors, is nowhere to be seen in this logical and free-flowing certification guide.
But not only is the book entertaining and easy to read, it approaches Java, and the whole issue of approaching Java certification, from an entirely new perspective. Most people penning a book on Java would start the book by discussing syntax and code. But Cameron McKenzie refuses to fall into that old trap, instead, turning the SCJA Examobjectives on their head, by starting off with an in depth discussion the big picture issues, getting the reader excited about Java, and enthusiastic about learning how the language works.
This is the ultimate Java Certification Guide. If you want to get certified, get your hands on Cameron McKenzie's SCJA Certification Study Guide.

If you're interested in attempting what is probably Sun's most comprehensive certification exam, you need to be prepared. This book covers all of the certification objectives thoroughly and comprehensively, with hundreds of mock exam questions to test you on how much you know and understand. I couldn't have passed without this book. Definitely the standard for the SCJA exam.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
