Typos - Sybex OCP Java 8 Study Guide
(1 like, 1 cow)
Hi, first post.
I've made it all the way through the Sybex OCP Java 8 Study Guide.
Overall I like it and I expect most of my questions will be answered by another readthrough.
However, I noticed a few typos that I haven't seen in the errata.

page 219 - Third paragraph. Shouldn't it be 'implementation of Set' not 'implement of Set'?
page 233 - First Localisation bullet point. Shouldn't it be "set the locale" instead of "set the local"?
page 287 - Table 6.3 Reference to Chapter 3 for DateTimeException should be Chapter 5.
page 298 - 2nd last comment line in code example. "exeption handler" should be "exception handler".
page 306 - First paragraph. Shouldn't it be "There are a few" not "There are few"?
page 428 - First sentence after the box. Is there any need for the 'a' before Serializable?
page 637 - "Too be determined"? I know it's in a String and it will print perfectly well. It just bugs me. Should be "To be".
page 648 - The very last page. There's a reference to Option H which does not exist. Should be Option G.

Now back to page 1 for me for another try.
Nick.

Yes, but I'm not going to log it as an errata. There were a couple of typos in the objectives from Oracle and we had a debate about whether to fix them when copying the objectives into the book. As you can see, there was some inconsistency in response to that question. Such as this errata where we fixed the typo in the intro to the book, but not the intro to the chapter.

page 287 - Table 6.3 Reference to Chapter 3 for DateTimeException should be Chapter 5.


Heh. It's in chapter 3 in our OCA book . Logged

page 306 - First paragraph. Shouldn't it be "There are a few" not "There are few"?

I logged this on our private list of things that we'd want to fix when we update the book for the next cert version, but aren't quite wrong. There are few valid ways, but that's not great English .

page 637 - "Too be determined"? I know it's in a String and it will print perfectly well. It just bugs me. Should be "To be".


Also logged on our private list. Fun fact: Appendix C was written in a mad rush. It didn't get the same amount of editing as the rest of the book so we focused on content over grammar inside strings . Oracle came out with an upgrade exam with extra content shortly before we went to press.  And we felt it was an important appendix to have so we made it happen!

page 648 - The very last page. There's a reference to Option H which does not exist. Should be Option G.
