    Don't buy this book and think it will prepare you for the exam.

    Don't buy this book and think it will prepare you for the exam. I know the contents of this book inside and out but the actual Sun exam asked questions that were not covered. Almost like the exam writers had a copy of this book and made sure not to include certain questions based on the fact it was covered in this book. plus there are tons of typos and errors, especially in the practice exams.
