Progress on the OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide

November 2nd, 2014 by Jeanne Boyarsky

book-pdf

In September, Scott and I announced we were writing a book for the OCA (Java 8) exam. Just over a month later, the book cover is up on Amazon along with the estimated publish date of December 31, 2014. I assume this means early January as I find it hard to believe anything happens at a large company during Christmas/New Year’s Week.

It’s great to see progress though. The book is now starting the technical proofreading stage. Yesterday, our tech proofer showed us what the PDF or some of the chapters looks like. it was really cool seeing the jump from a (heavily edited and iterative) Word document to a sharp looking PDF. It’s also exciting seeing something we wrote in near final form.

not sure where to start…congrats on the effort in writing this book…but i am amazed that you were allowed to publish such an important book riddled with so many errors. can you tell us when to expect the second printing…i am teaching myself java and would like to use your book to prepare for the exam, but i am worried about the errors.
thanks and may the good lord bless you both.
