In one book -- Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide, Third Edition -- you’ll find all the study resources you need to pass the newest versions of both of Sun’s flagship Java certification tests: the Programmer’s Exam and the Developer’s Exam. This is authoritative stuff: Coauthor Simon Roberts has been directly involved in helping to create Sun’s Java exams.
There’s a lot to know in order to pass Sun’s “entry-level” Java Programmer’s Exam, and this book covers it all: basic syntax, operators, assignments, modifiers, converting and casting, flow control, exceptions, assertions, objects, classes, threads, the java.lang and java.util packages, I/O, and more.
Then it’s on to the Developer’s Exam, which (among other things) requires you to write a real application, based on Sun’s detailed directions. Heller and Roberts respond by walking you through two multi-chapter projects of comparable complexity: a room reservation system, and a help desk trouble-ticket system. In each case, you implement user interfaces, networking, and database integration.
In addition to hundreds of sample questions delivered by an extremely flexible test engine, the accompanying CD-ROM contains a complete practice Programmer’s Exam, plus a fully searchable eBook. Bill Camarda
