The solution on page 340 says:

The if statement on line 18 returns false because ...


I think this should be corrected as follow:

The if statement on line 18 returns true because ...


Is that correct?

Too little information for me to confirm or deny, so I'll notify the authors about your question.

PS. Currently there are 3 books out there for the OCA exam. Could you please add (e.g. in the title) the study guide you have a remark about (makes it clear for everybody). Based on your previous submissions of errata items about Java OCA 8 Programmer I Study Guide, I assume this one is also about this study guide and I added the study guide to the title. Hope that's ok for you.

Confirmed and added to the errata. I'll confess that I paid way more attention to making sure the answer was correct than proofreading the explanation. Thanks for catching it. You are a very thorough reader. (Many people gloss over the explanations and just look at the letter answer)

Thank God. I love this site. I thought I was going crazy when I couldn't quite grasp the explanation. Thank you for this!
