"When someone asks how you’re doing preparing for the exam, you should have a strong sense of what you’ve learned so far, what you’re currently studying, and how many weeks you need to be prepared to take the exam."

There is an extra "the".

Thanks!

Thanks for your reply, Campbell... and for your warm welcome!

Please excuse my immense ignorance, but how do I submit it? The link you sent only says:

"To report an error in the book that is not yet listed here, please create a thread in the OCA forum and include “Sybex OCA Java 8 Study Guide” in the subject."

...which is exactly what I am doing.

I understood that creating this thread was all that was needed and that eventually, the authors of the book would look for threads that included “Sybex OCA Java 8 Study Guide” and update the erratas from these threads.

In that case, all you have to do is wait for Jeanne to pick up this discussion

Yes.

When someone asks how you’re doing preparing for the exam

Not a native English speaker but wouldn't that better be
When someone asks how you’re doing preparation for the exam ?

Agreed. Added to the errata and credited you.
