My review is about the pdfs that come on the disk that accompanies the book.
The PDFs are exactly the same as the book, which is good, but they're locked for printing, which is bad.
One reason I bought this book was for the pdfs so I could print out a few pages and scribble notes on them without defacing the book. When I tried to print a page I found that it was locked for printing. This is a real PITA. I understand that the authors and publishers don't want people stealing their hard work, but I'm not that guy. I bought the book, I bought the disk, I bought the pdf, I'm not going to start emailing the pdfs to a bunch of people. It's especially frustrating because the lock is so easy to break. The only thing that prevents me from unlocking it is that I'm not the type of guy who steals digital content. It really galls me that their useless lock really only works based on my honesty whereas any jackass with internet access can crack it open. Check it out [...]
I don't have a solution for the problem of piracy, but relying on my honesty isn't going to stop other people from stealing it.

A friend of mine recommended me this book for preparing my certification exam and it was a wise peace of advice because not only that it teaches you JAVA in a funny way, but it's incredibly efficient ! This book prepares you way over what is needed to succeed the exam which is great because by completing it your can be sure to pass the exam !
