On Chapter 2, page 119 of (Sierra-Bates) guide for SCJP Java 6 (310-065) I believe there is an error on the book (not on the code, but on an explanation)

At the end of the second paragraph, instead of "The compiler is smart enough to say, "I know Beagle already IS a Dog, but it's OK to make it more obvious" it should say "I know Beagle already IS a Pet, but it's OK to make it more obvious"

What do you think? How do I report this to McGraw hill so they can check it out and correct it (if I'm right) for the next edition.

Thanks and regards

Gabriel

Hi Gabriel,

I think it's OK since Beagle is also a Dog.

Or maybe the author is trying to tell us (in the real world) that not all Beagles are pet-able.
