I'm learning for the OCA exam right now, and I believe I spotted a typo on page 311, near the bottom of the page:

"If it is thrown, the first catch block takes care of it, making sure there no way to get to the second catch block."
Sounds like a word is missing => "... making sure there is no way to get to the second catch block."

I didn't see it in the errata on https://www.selikoff.net/java-oca-8-programmer-i-study-guide/ but maybe it has been reported already

That does appear to be a “tyro typo”: well done spotting it

And welcome to the Ranch

Tom,
Welcome to CodeRanch! You are correct that this is an error.

I feel like I wrote it down somewhere (because I fixed it in my OCA 11 draft). Not sure where though. I've added it to the errata list now though.
 
Be reasonable. You can't destroy everything. Where would you sit? How would you read a tiny ad?
