Very readable and comprehensive. I'm a very experienced C++ programmer, but haven't done a lot of coding in Java. I spent a few weeks reading this, making flash cards, writing small programs to practice using the API and test nuances of the language, and then a weekend taking the practice exams and reviewing my mistakes. I passed the test with 57 out of 60 questions correct (needed 35). I also enjoyed the process, largely because of this book. The writing is genuinely enjoyable. There is just enough humor, never forced. My only complaint is that the exercise seem to be entirely an afterthought. There are too few--totally lacking in many chapters with plenty of APIs to exercise, some are unclear, and others uninteresting.

Katherine Sierra has a way of presenting the Java language that is interesting, encouraging, and entertaining. Her light-hearted humor, injected from time to time, helps the reader to both lighten up and approach the material as a surmountable challenge. This is needed because one of the realizations that the reader must inevitably reach, while assimilating the subject matter, is that anyone can program in Java, but only a few actually do it well. This book has helped improve my own Java skills considerably, inspiring me to approach each project with a lot more thoughtfulness with respect to the language's basics.

As a professional programmer this book was easy to read. Most of the material was easy to understand after first pass. It pre-supposes one already knows java. I've been doing Java for 5 years on and off and I learned things through the Study Guide. The exam sample questions each have to be read really carefully. I made a first pass through the book in about 3 weeks. Next I will go through it again at a quicker pace and hopefully be ready for the exam. The section on Generics could have been more concise. However this topic really needs a full explanation because it has so many dimensions that is unlike classic Java.
