Hello,
It's great to have Paul and Joe available for questions this week. A study group that I belong to in Denver is using the Allen/Bambara SCEA Study Guide as our template for exam prep. We've noticed what we think are typos or what could be misunderstandings on our part. We'd like to know where to post what we think are potential errata so that all may learn from the explanations provided by the authors and others.

That's great that you have a study group for exam prep. It makes it fun and faciltates the process.
Send your questions / errata to jbambara@ucny.com. We will create a maiuling list and send you everything we have. If you send me an email this week I will send back the errata to date.
-regards,

Bill,
The errata should have been posted a while back to the Osbourne McGraw-Hill site (Osbourne Errata). However it is not there yet, so here is the most recent errata file contents:
