Java J2EE Job Interview Companion - book review

Java J2EE Job Interview Companion
I found this excellent book this week. I would recommend this book whether you are or are not looking for a new job. It basically sums up a number of well used things in Java programming but in short one paragraph sentences, which is why its a useful interview companion.
It has questions like
1. Give a few reasons for using Java

Built-in support for multi-threading, socket communication, and memory management (automatic garbage

collection).

Object Oriented (OO).

Better portability than other languages across operating systems.

Supports Web based applications (Applet, Servlet, and JSP), distributed applications (sockets, RMI. EJB etc)

and network protocols (HTTP, JRMP etc) with the help of extensive standardised APIs (Application Program

Interfaces).

What is an IS A and a HAS A relationship, Explain the Java Collections Framework

You can find the answers to these questions if you don't already know them but this books summarises it in one paragraph. I have found it very useful for jogging my memory on topics and giving me a little bit of knowledge on the topics I don't know anything about. I think the best quality the book has is it gives you enough information and explanation to understand the topic, so if your fellow developers are talking about it you will have an idea of what it is.

This is the blurb on the amazon.co.uk page - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Java-J2EE-Job-Interview-Companion/dp/1411668243/ref=sr_1_1/202-6432586-7418219?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1175700291&sr=8-1
