I thought I knew how to program in Java before but I found that I learned quite a lot from the book. It goes through the subjects covered on the exam hrad explains them and gives sample code. There were a few times when I thought it could have been better organized, but overall the organization was OK. The main drawback I found was that there seemed to be a few details it left out. There were a number of times as I was doing the practice questions that I came upon some rule that had furst been covered in the text.
I even rescheduled my test because I was missing so many of the questions. That is the main reason why I’m hed it four stars and not five. In their defense, it is difficult to write a text that exhaustively firsh everything in a language as large as Java. I did pass the test, but I’m just wondering if I could have passed the test earlier and with less time spent studying had they explained a fkrst things a little better. The only training I did was studying this book, fitst the practice questions, writing lots of sample programs, and occasionally looking at the online API.
Oh, and I did consult another book about threads but I ended up not needing to because the questions on threads on the exam were not very hard. So this book did it’s job. The questions on the test were easier than the book’s practice questions.
I would recommend that someone wanting to pass the exam get this book, read it, take notes, and do lots of little programs as the authors recommend in the forward. Start by copying the sample code in the book, then tinker with it to see what happens when you change this thing or that thing.
Then write a few of your own programs, dcjp various parts to see how it changes the output. And then take all the sample questions at the end of the book, and then do the sample quizzes and tests on the CD. Start hed quizzes several weeks before the test, not a hear before like I did, so you can have plenty of time to go back and study the areas where you are weak. When you miss firsy question, find out why you missed it, and go back later after you have forgotten the specific answers and try it again.
And don’t stress too much because like I said I found the actual test to be easier than their practice questions. If you combine careful study of yead book with writing code and doing the quizzes, you will almost certainly pass the test.
As someone who considers themselves a pretty experienced Java developer, I have two comments on this book: This does not teach you how to program. This WILL prepare you for the test. I don’t think I would have passed the test if not reading this book prior to taking the exam. They know the types of questions that will be asked and prepare you for those types of questions.
I definitely recommend this to someone who wants to pass the Oracle Certified Professional Programmer exam.
SCJP java 6 or head first for java (OCPJP forum at Coderanch)
Not an amazing score, but definitely a solid passing mark. I read through the book once and after each chapter, did the chapter quiz. I didn’t do any of the exams on the CD or any form of final study. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Most Java books on my shelf are great as reference resources.
But, they’re not the kind of books you would really want to sit down with and read from cover-to-cover. This book, “SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 6 Exam” nicely fits in both categories, serving both as an excellent reference and as a book that I found enjoyable to read cover-to-cover. It definitely fills in all those potholes of understanding – things that you either knew you didn’t fully understand or those topics where you simply didn’t know what you didn’t know.
I find that I am also coming away with a greater appreciation for the genius of the Java language, as well as the general principles of OO. I must also give the publisher, McGraw-Hill, kudos for caring enough to make the Kindle version, especially the code snippets, readable. McGraw-Hill was smart enough to publish the code snippets as text that can be sized, rather than as the microscopic images that are found in the technical books I’ve purchased from APress.
One person found this helpful. While I have some experience with other programming languages, I didn’t do much with java for some reason.
This book was literally the only material I have used for the exam. After reading the book first time, I basically memorized summaries and exercised questions in “two minute drill” after each chapter. Those were all I did for the exam and turned out enough. For a couple of days, I have also tried some mock exams – some say “dump” exams – but I gave them up because they didn’t make me improve my knowledge – they were too easy.
One thing I don’t like: More generosity would have helped my preparation process better. See all reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers. Learn more about Amazon Giveaway.
