    Default SCJA preparation

    I am currently struggling my way through McGraw Hill's SCJA study guide by Liguori & Finegan after completing a Java 101 course (of which I got a high distinction I might add )

    I'm finding some of the review questions quite difficult & can't help but wonder if they're irrelevant. Often a question's subject matter is not covered within the chapter material, plus I believe they are out of scope of the SCJA exam objectives.

    For example, Chapter 3 Question 2 :

    Which set of operators represents the complete set of valid Java assignment operators?
    Answer: C. %=, &=, *=, /=, ^=, |=, +=, <<=, =, -=, >>=, >>>=

    Yet only a subset of these are covered on the exam (=, +=, -=).

    Not to mention the assumed prior knowledge of classes & interfaces. (Which I have, but isn't SCJA for beginners?)

    Does anyone have any advice/experience with this book? Is there a better study guide?

    Or am I off the mark & need more experience with Java before attempting the SCJA?

    Thanks for the reply/tip. My book gets a bit better from chapter 4 onwards. I will check out your book too.
