I just wanted to thank you for writing the book and sharing your experience with Java interviews. It was helpful in guiding me to concentrate on the important topics and the key knowledge from each, allowing me to drill down into each topic and not lose focus on the way.
I am usually quite nervous at interviews, but the tips you mention in the book helped calm my nerves. I just want to applaud you in writing this book for fellow programmers!”
"I've already bought your book 'Java Interview Bootcamp' and have got some great pointers and tips from it - Its a great piece of work. I've been in the IT world for more than 20 years and wanted a book to just review Java"
"Thanks Sam, It was really helpful. It helped me summarize the topics I should be concentrating upon."
"When I was reading this book I asked my self a lot: "Why I didn't read this book before?" Several days before I started reading the book I had an interview. And I was quite surprised when I noticed that the book describes an interview which is exactly the same. All that questions I was asked are here, just in front of me. But it's a little bit late. So here's an obvious advice: if you want to be prepared for the interview try to read this book before, not after.
The book contains two big and logically separated parts. First part describes an interview process starting with CV and ending with personal talk. Here you'll find an information how to prepare yourself to the interview. One of the key points is soft skills. Second part is about technical stuff like OOP, core Java and algorithms. If you're new in Java, this part will help you to find main topics to learn and improve. If you're already good as a Java programmer, you can use this part as a reference. It's quite helpful to refresh your knowledge, especially if you had no interview practice for some time."
"Java Interview Bootcamp is very well written in a clear and concise fashion, which is something that can be rare in books about programming. Atkinson writes in a friendly and conversational tone, without ever sounding less than professional. It focuses specifically on Java, but I think it is general enough to apply to any programming interview. Certainly the first half is, which focuses on interview skills and developing a good resume.
The second section focusses on core Java knowledge, and is clearly explained and gets right to the point.
It's a great resource to have an experienced programmer and interviewer lay out exactly what knowledge is important to carry into an interview and a job. As someone who is preparing to break into programming professionally, I am so glad that Atkinson wrote this book. Many times I have wondered what, specifically, to focus on for the interview process.
The field of programming is so vast that, at times, it is easy to become overwhelmed with what to focus on. Java Interview Bootcamp does a great job in narrowing that down. Highly recomended!!!"
“I have been interviewing for more than 2 years, I always faced a huge problem, there is too much information scattered everywhere and no good single place review the basics, so after finding your site I purchased Java Interview Bootcamp, and l really like it.
Not only did it talk about and demonstrate the concepts I needed, it was clear and precise. Your book gave me confidence and given a clear path on how to succeed.
The end result, I am closing out one offer and I'm at the final round with another company”
