The BEST!


This is the best book out there for the cert test. I first used the programmer 2 study guide but then a co-worker recomended this one. I was glad he did because there were some assumption that the other book made about certain things like two's compliment and binary conversion which I didn't know since I wasn't a computer science major. I would recomend using this book and the Java 2 Exam Notes. It's only ... and you get so much value for that. I would study that book, then if I didn't understand a subject, I would read it from this one.
Good Job Khalid and Rolf!

Increase your chances with this book !


If you are planning to become an OCP, you need this book. If you want to become a good application developer, you need this book. buying this book will increase your chances of passing the OCP test because it tells you what oracle expects you to know. Even if you have experience, you might not use everything offered in oracle. Oracle lists all the subjects covered on the test and this books touches each one but it might miss some parts since oracle adds new questions so often, but you will have most of the information you need (95%). But this book will really help you pass but you need a little experience along with it. I actually use this as a reference and I am learning a lot more than any other book out there. You should create your own sample database so you could use your own creativity, and that is the ultimate experience, looking at sample code is easy--making your own to enforce business rules is what you need to do to become a good application developer. The sample test questions are good but on the real test there are more scenario type questions on it. Those questions will help you understand and learn oracle features but download the assesment test from the oracle website for more of a real feel--it's free. Some of those questions are similiar to the real one, just be prepared for other types. This guide is not just to pass the ocp tests, but is also a good reference. You should have other books as well, i recomend Oracle the complete reference and pl/sql programming-both from the oracle press. These books are all you need to make robust applications.

Perfect For Beginners!


I knew *nothing* about HTML and making web pages before I bought this book. Within just a day or 2 I had some simple pages up. A few weeks later I had a nice family site up and running, along with a few sites for friends.This book covers everything you need to know to make simple web pages. Unfortunately it doesn't help you make more dynamic web pages. There's either not much info or no info at all on cgi, javascript, css, or DHTML. This book is pure HTML, which is really all the basic web page builder needs.
The book is well written and the examples are very easy to follow. I'd recommend this book to EVERY HTML beginner. But if you want more advanced stuff, you'll have to buy another book or 2 after this one.
- on a side note, I wouldn't recommend the Visual Quickstart Guide: "DHTML and CSS for the world wide web". Most of the examples in there could be accomplished with straight HTML, and a lot of times much more easily.
