Back to Basics! Review underway for OCA Java SE 7 book

Hello friendly blog readers!

If you're a frequent reader of this blog, you probably remember some fairly technical Java topics.  Like most Enterprise-ish Java folks, I sometimes find myself deep in the weeds with some difficult topic.

But do you remember when you were new to Java?

There are still people out there today who haven't seen EJB2, XDoclet, Struts, Ant vs. Maven and so on!  They are just learning Java today.  How in the world will they ever accumulate the vast array of tangential knowledge they're going to need to survive?

Why, they'll read books of course.

If you're one of those new people, I'm embarking on a project that can help you.  I am reviewing a new book from Packt Publishing that covers the basics of the Java language.  You don't need to be a rocket scientist to read it, and it will give you a nice frame of reference to build your Java knowledge upon.

The book is called "Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 7 Programmer Study Guide" and it can be found here.

I'll post a review soon.

Meanwhile, happy learnings!
