Excellent reading

Book Review

In short.....WOW!!!
I am an experienced web programmer and decided that it was time to add Java to the list. I was looking for a book that would provide me the information I need but not a a beginner's level. Well, this book did exactly that. I provide great insight on what Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages were and how to quickly implement them.
In addition, it showed and discussed more than just the standard "Hello World" examples. This is a book that I would recommend for anyone looking not only to learn Java but who is looking to implement it.
Thanks to Mr. Hall for writing a great book...

Good content, not enough test prep

I used this book and this book only for preparation on my A+ exams. While I found this book a wonderful source of information, I encountered several subjects on the test that weren't even mentioned. However, this book is a very comprehensive technical reference as well, sometimes maybe reaching beyond its bounds. For example, 40+ pages were spent discussing netwroking equipment, topologies, and protocols, but there were only 3 questions related to networking on the tests. I am living proof that it's possible to attain A+ certification through this books, but you may want to supplement it with some other study material.
