Hi . i am making preparetion for OCPJP6 exam.
l have seen below sentence in Kathy Sierra book . which is about "AssertionError" ...
l couldnt figure out about meaning of "correct" and "legal" ...
Can anyone explane this two words.

Kathy Sierra book (About AssetionError)

If you see the word "appropriate" on the exam, do not mistake that for "legal."
          "Appropriate"always refers to the way in which something is supposed to be
     used, according to either the developers of the mechanism or best practices officially
  embraced(benimsemek) by Sun. If you see the word “correct” in the context of assertions,
  as in, “Line 3 is a correct use of assertions,” you should also assume that correct is referring to how
  assertions SHOULD be used rather than how they legally COULD be used.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
