Heck, even the multithreading APIs are much the same.
That's really sad if that's the case. It's a great programming book, period, and it should live on. I hope the authors rework it into a general Java guide. For my part, I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn Java. The newer Java versions are mostly a superset of the old ones, so you won't be wasting your time.
Okay, my take while reading the book and doing the quizzes at the end of each chapter was that this had to be the most worthless certification on the planet. The quiz questions seemed more inclined to try to trick and misdirect than to really test anything of value, so I was pretty down on it as a result. But I had committed to taking the exam, so I prepared anyway. I read the book twice and did all the questions at the end, studying the answers ca The book seems good at what it is designed for.

Sierra attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a major in exercise physiology and spent 10 years working in the fitness industry. She also led the new media team at Mind over Macintosh, a Los Angeles training center that provided training to advertising and entertainment corporations adapting digital technologies in the mid s. She also worked as a master trainer for Sun Microsystems , teaching Java instructors how to introduce new Java technologies and developing certification exams.
In , she founded the Java programmer's online community JavaRanch.
She is the co-creator of the Head First series of books on technical primarily computer topics, along with her partner, Bert Bates. The series, which began with Head First Java in , takes an unorthodox, visually intensive approach to the process of teaching programming.
Sierra's books in the series have received three nominations for Product Excellence Jolt Awards , winning in for Head First Design Patterns , and were recognized on site.
In she coined the phrase "The Kool-Aid Point" to describe the point at which detractors emerge purely due to the popularity of a topic being promoted by others. Sierra says that her interest in cognitive science was motivated by her epilepsy , a condition for which she takes anti-seizure medication.
After years of being mostly absent from the open internet, in July she started the site "Serious Pony" including a blog,  together with a Twitter account, although as of October the latter had been deleted due to ongoing harassment. In March , Sierra abruptly canceled her appearance at the O'Reilly ETech conference in San Diego due to threatening blog posts and emails, including death threats.
The hacker and self-professed " Internet troll " Andrew Auernheimer, known as weev , told the New York Times that he was responsible for posting false information about Sierra online, along with her address and Social Security number , a form of harassment known as doxxing. Sierra gave up her technology career as a result of the harassment, withdrawing from most public-speaking events and no longer blogging.
In her final post, she wrote that she did not want to be involved with the culture of the Blogosphere as long as such harassment was accepted.
The issue triggered public discussion on the concept of a bloggers' code of conduct. Some bloggers, including Robert Scoble , author of the technology blog Scobleizer , temporarily suspended their blogs in a show of support for Sierra. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
