More than 250 challenging practice questions have been completely revised to closely model the format, tone, topics, and difficulty of the real exam.

Praise for the author:

“Finally! A Java certification book that explains everything clearly. All you need to pass the exam is in this book.”

—Solveig Haugland, Technical Trainer and Former Sun Course Developer

"Who better to write a Java study guide than Kathy Sierra, the reigning queen of Java instruction? Kathy Sierra has done it again—here is a study guide that almost guarantees you a certification!"

—James Cubeta, Systems Engineer, SGI

"The thing I appreciate most about Kathy is her quest to make us all remember that we are teaching people and not just lecturing about Java. Her passion and desire for the highest quality education that meets the needs of the individual student is positively unparalleled at SunEd. Undoubtedly there are hundreds of students who have benefited from taking Kathy's classes."

—Victor Peters, founder Next Step Education & Software Sun Certified Java Instructor

“I want to thank Kathy for the EXCELLENTStudy Guide. The book is well written, every concept is clearly explained using a real life example, and the book states what you specifically need to know for the exam. The way it's written, you feel that you're in a classroom and someone is actually teaching you the difficult concepts, but not in a dry, formal manner. The questions at the end of the chapters are also REALLY good, and I am sure they will help candidates pass the test. Watch out for this Wickedly Smart book.”

-Alfred Raouf, Web Solution Developer, Kemety.Net

"The Sun Certification exam was certainly no walk in the park but Kathy's material allowed me to not only pass the exam, but Ace it!"

—Mary Whetsel, Sr. Technology Specialist, Application Strategy and Integration, The St. Paul Companies

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
There are nearly 4 million Java programmers. How to stand out from that gigantic crowd? Earn Sun’s brand-new J2SE 1.4 platform certification. Base-level certification involves passing the new Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform exam (310-035). Once you’ve done that, really demonstrate your chops: Pass the Sun Certified Developer exam (310-027). One book will prepare you for both exams: Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java 2 Study Guide.

Part I offers focused, example-rich coverage of every programmer’s exam objective: declarations and access control; operators and assignments; flow control, exceptions, and assertions; overloading; java.lang; collections, garbage collection, inner classes, threads, and more. Every chapter ends with a two-minute drill on all the high points, followed by a multiple-choice self-test with careful explanations of every answer. (You’ll find hundreds more questions on CD-ROM.)

Next, it’s on to the Developer’s Exam, wherein you’re asked to build your own application and justify its design. Here, Kathy Sierra focuses on effective project organization, coding, and development practices, as well as Swing-based user interfaces, networking, RMI, database implementation, and other advanced topics. She covers everything you need to translate your Java knowledge into certification -- and all the good stuff that goes with it. Bill Camarda

    A Fun, Interesting Way to Prepare!

    This book is awesome! Kathy Sierra and Burt Bates take a detailed, yet light-hearted approach towards covering the topics for the SCJP exam. They meld topics together seamlessly, so that it is not forgotten. This book also covers the SCJD exam by going over a mock assignment (The SCJD consists of completing an assignment as well as an essay exam.), and covering the areas on which your assignment will be graded by the fine accessors at Sun. This was a very helpful, knowledgeable book that helped me ace the JP and JD exams. The cd contains testing software, which gives you an accurate feel for the real thing. If you are serious about studying Java and preparing for these two exams, this book will be a very valuable resource for you.

    Great book!

    I got a score of 93 on the SCJP exam using only this book as a study guide. This well-organized book contains all you need to know to pass the exam, including exam tips, sample questions at the end of each chapter and two free practice exams (one on the included disk and one available online). And it does it all with a sense of humor too :) Study this book from cover-to-cover, do all of the sample questions, and take the practice exams, and you should do very well on the test.

    The only book you need for the SCJP exam

    This week I passed the Sun Certified Java Programmer Exam with a score of 90%. This is the only book I needed. It covers everything that you need to know for each exam objective. It also tells you what you don't need to know. (i.e., Swing, AWT, and I/O are not covered on the exam.) The format and difficulty of the sample questions are identical to the actual exam questions. (Yes, the actual exam questions are very tricky and the exhibits contain very subtle errors.) You should study the chapter summaries and self test questions until you know them cold. Once you are comfortable with the material, go to javaranch.com and take the mock exams. They also have some great forums on certification if you have questions. My only criticism is regarding the chapters covering the Sun Certified Java Developer exam (Ch 10-17). There is a lot of good information, but it's light on specifics. I suspect this was intentional to avoid giving away too much about the solution to the exam assignment. I would have liked to see a couple of example assignments similar to the actual exam assignment.

    Great book. To the point and with good tips

    This book is great because it won't make you waste any time on things you don't need to know for the exam. Everything in it is a must know. However, I think it assumed some previous knowledge in some important topics, so you should complement this book with Java Certification by Khalid Mughal. You need both, not one or the other. Both complement each other perfectly.

    my favorite ever certification book

    best book I have seen for Java programmer certificate. very detailed, very clear. it kept my attention and everything did make perfect sense. End of chapter summary and the sample tests are a very big help. I learned to understand things and not just memorize. Enjoyed it! Exam-watch tips are also a very big help, to tell you about hard or unusual traps on the exam. From the sample tests at the end and on the CD, I think that I am now prepared to get a very good score.
