Hey everyone, I'm going through chapter 3 in K&B and I've noticed that I'm running across more and more binary, octal, and hexadecimal stuff. I feel like this would have gotten removed from the exam with the bit shift operators and the like. Does anyone know if this stuff is going to be covered in the current incarnation of the exam?

Thanks

Chris

You won't be tested extensively on these but you need to know a little bit about these number systems. You can get a question which assigns an octal value to a primitive variable as well as handling integer parsing for different number systems (there is an overloaded version of parseXxx methods which take radix as 2nd argument)...

Thanks. That's exactly the information I needed.
