Core Java Career Essentials Book Details

"Core Java Career Essentials" are something you must know, and know it well to succeed as a Java professional. Even 40% to 60% of the so called experienced professionals fail to make an impression due to their lack of understanding in one or more of the areas covered in this book. Lack of good understanding in the core essentials can be a speed breaker to your career advancement.
If you have a java interview coming up in a few days or you want to impress your peers and superiors with your technical strengths during code review sessions, team meetings, and stand-ups, and concerned about how to make a good impression? You don't need to worry if you are familiar with the fundamentals. This is a Questions & Answers book with 250+ questions and answers relating to core Java with lots of code snippets (100+), examples, and diagrams. Most Java interviews and technical challenges you face at work are structured around the fundamentals and how well you communicate those fundamentals. So regularly brushing up on these fundamentals really pays off.
