The exam for the Sun Certified Programmer for Java Platform, Standard Edition 6,
has changed considerably since the second edition of this book was published. The
most noticeable change in the current version of the Sun Certified Java Programmer
(SCJP) 1.6 exam
is the inclusion of the features of Java 5, and the shifting of
emphasis towards analyzing code scenarios, rather than individual language constructs.
In our opinion, the new exam demands an even greater understanding and
actual experience of the language, rather than mere recitation of facts. Proficiency
in the language is the key to success.
