You'll be fine, just as long as you take the time to figure out what is specific to Java 7. Plenty of articles about that on the net, so no problem.1 person found this helpful
BTW: scjp? Nowadays its Oracle, not Sun. Beware that Oracle changed the certification a bit.
Here are the main differences between 6 and 7: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java_version_history#Java_SE_7_.28July_28.2C_2011.29. They are quite substantial at the language level and some important API's. Since you want to read 'Beginning Java', I assume you are a beginner and you don't need the extra-confusion resulting from trying to sort out what is part of what version of Java. I don't know the books and if the author of 'Beginning Java' points out which features are new. As a test, check if, when talking about String's in switch statements, they tell you that it is a new Java 7 feature.1 person found this helpful
