SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 6 Study Guide by Kathy Sierra

I taught myself programming out of it. Somehow it manages to teach to the test AND teach CS concepts incredibly thoroughly while being actually entertaining. It taught me what This book It taught me what the heap is, what “pass by reference” means and why I should never modify an object that was passed to me or if I do the passing, don’t allow modifying to begin with. I haven’t programmed full-time in Java for 5 years, but I still reach for it from time to time when I need a refresher on how garbage collection or multithreading works.


Those things work the same way in most modern languages. Heck, even the multithreading APIs are much the same. That’s really sad if that’s the case. It’s a great programming book, period, and it should live on.

I hope the authors rework it into a general Java guide. For my part, I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn Java. The newer Java versions are mostly a superset of the old ones, so you won’t be wasting your time. Apr 18, Shawn rated it liked it.

The book seems sckp at what it is designed for. Okay, my take while reading the kayhy and doing the quizzes at the end of each chapter was that this had to be the most worthless certification on the planet.

The quiz questions seemed more inclined to try to trick and misdirect than to really test anything of value, so I was pretty down on it as a result.

But I had committed to taking the exam, so I prepared anyway. I read the book twice and did all the questions at the end, studying the answers ca The book seems good at what it is designed for. I read the book twice and did all the questions at the ksthy, studying the answers carefully.

Kathj real exam had virtually none of the dumb trickery that the practice stuff had. So I’d say the book did a good job of tricking me into studying more than enough to pass the exam–I wish I had spent less time preparing, although I am happy with the result.

If anything, the book’s sdjp questions may be overly discouraging and difficult–they might cause some folks to give up on taking the real exam who ought to press ahead anyway. Feb 12, Ahmed rated it it was amazing. Here is the thing, want to prepare for the SCJP 6 exam? This is the book to read. It tackles each of the 38 objectives of the exam in great detail and a very neatly-organized chapter structure. The book assumes no prior knowledge of the topics, just that you know your way around Java programming- compiling and running programs.

Mar 05, Jeffery Moulton rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a very well-done certification-prep book. It is informative, has great sample test questions, and is often funny in a geeky, nerd sort of way though the promised twist ending is something of a dcjp. The only kkathy I had was that it needed more exercises. It gave great examples, but didn’t have the reader actually try them out enough.

If not for that, it would have been 5 stars.

Recommended for anyone studying for the exam. Jul 06, Ahmed Attyah rated it it was amazing. Jul 10, Santhosh Kumar rated it katy was amazing. Why you’re reading the book matters. If it’s to clear the exam it’s the best that there is.


If you’re reading this to “learn” java. You should understand that you’re “learning” java not learning how to use kathhy. It’s just a different way of saying that you’re learning the fundamentals in quite a detailed manner, which is good.
