An absolutely cracking book, I couldn't put it down. It was so easy to read, nicely laid out with diagrams, code snippets and program output.

It basically goes through a sample project, a DVD database, and explains what is needed to get the project through to being acceptable for submission for the exam. There is a lot of helpful insight into what is required to pass the exam like whether to use RMI or sockets and the documentation that needs to be packaged with the submission.

It goes through analysis, coding conventions and Javadoc before getting to coding. It then looks at threading, RMI, sockets and the GUI explaining what the examiners would be looking for.

I am looking into doing the first exam, but when I need to pass the second exam I will definitely be getting this book down off of the shelf. This is the first techie book in a while that I have really enjoyed reading.Other Languages
