In Review question section of chapter 3 , question 2 , line 7.
And when we go to Appendix A Answer to Review Question and the explanation for this line is wrong.
In question it is checking equality and in explanation it written that it is checking reference.
I feel it is very minor mistake.

Hi prateek shaw,

First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

You are correct! Line numbers are messed up in the explanation. This errata item was reported a year ago here and already added to the official errata overview of this study guide.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

Thanks for your reply , however i knew the below website.

https://www.selikoff.net/java-oca-8-programmer-i-study-guide/

First i went there and i was trying to search with statement which was wrong , not the correct.
They should have one more column which is basically should have statements which has issues.
However i know people may say that it has page number. but the problem is i am reading book via safari and i did not see page number so for me it is tough to search and find this.

Is i am missing anything ?

I think adding an additional column with the actual statement would clutter the errata overview. Of course the most easy way is using the page numbers, but if you are reading the study guide through Safari, that's pretty useless. But then the second column should be very handy: it mentions in which chapter the errata item can be found. And because it is sorted on page number, it's chronological (from beginning of the study guide till the end). So that might be a big help to search for a particular errata item.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

And in this case, it also has the question number so pretty easy to find.

We do try to write a snippet of the statement where it makes things clearer. That isn't always the case as Roel noted.
