Simple question. What access modifiers can the top level class have. My book says only public, but my compiler allows friendly as well. And does a top level class simply mean that it isn't an inner class?

You are correct. A Top-Level class usually means a non-inner class. The access modifiers (If any) can only be public. The modifier can be left of, in which case it's consideres package or friendly access.
