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.
