Hmmmm ...

Even in it's 9th printing, this (retail $45 soft-back!) book has far too many typos and errors in it than one would expect from the master of C++ himself. Was the book rushed to press or was Dr. Stroustrup simply bored?

nice book

Now, it is time to write this review. I took 310-025 an hour ago and passed it with a score of 83%. Generally speaking, this book is very good it covers most of the stuff on the exam. The content seems boring but it is not a novel is n't it? You want to remember as much details as possible. Those practice questions in this book are mediocre. However, there are tons of Mock Exams on the internet. After read this book, you need to do as much mock exams as possible. I find learning by doing mock exams is a good approach. Identical quetions from mock exams may show up on real exam, which is weired. Sun has a web site and you can find several sample questions there. I did come across one of sample questions in the real exam. Pay more attentions at garbage collection and threads, if you do not know them. I assumed there would be one or two fill in blank type of qestions but I got five which is a lot I think. Anyway, this is a good book, read it memorize it, take mock exams on the internet, and you will pass it. Whenever you answer a question, ask yourself "what is this question testing me?". If you know the answer, you are more likely to be right. If you do n't even know what knowledge point they are trying to test, then you are in trouble. The exam is as tough as most mocking exams. Do not think the real exam is easier.

You should know...

...that this book is bad. Sure, you're saying, but almost all books in this field are bad because they're rushed, lame attempts to get on the shelves quick - how is this book relative to the field? And that's precisely the point. It isn't just bad by general standards, it's bad relative to the field. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, in this book that you don't already know. It's kind of like bottled water. These guys have built a business wrapping up common knowledge and making it seem like they've got a new take. They don't. The bottom line: if you purchase this book, you're going to be plenty ticked-off a few minutes later.
