On page 84, under the heading Increment and Decrement Operators in the 2nd paragraph, line 7 reads, " expression is returned with operator applied after the value is returned."

Should this rather read, "expression is returned with the operator applied after the value is returned." ?

Hi Riffath,

While I (and many others) appreciate your efforts for reporting errors in the book, I believe you picked a wrong strategy. If ever single typo will be posted here -- we going to loose readers.

I also noticed a funny thing -- errata page (https://www.selikoff.net/ocp11-1/) asks directly to report errors here on this forum 8-)

And it's only 1 book on the market at the moment, there are more coming from Manning.

There is a moderator here, and I have no authority to tell what should and should not be here. But as a first step to make you review less verbose, I propose to accumulate all your findings in a document and then share it in a single post, not spawning many posts for every found typo.

Thank you,
MZ

Hi Nikalai

Thank you for your reply. I was just highlighting inconsistencies, and since I've never posted on a forum before I was advised to create a new post for every different query.

I will take your advice into consideration though. Just trying to help out.

Regards.

Hi Riffath,
Thank you for your understanding.
Let's wait till moderator shares his opinion.
I am willing to help you if you are in doubt, but when I see a post which says like "-cp option is wrong answer on page XX" -- how can I verify or help?
At least some context needed: the code itself, answer options, and then some people can step in and help you. Please keep this in mind.

Another thing I would like to suggest -- make sure your thread subjects differ, because if you have started 6 threads with the *same* name, how can one track them?

Hi. I'm a moderator here along with co-author of the book we are discussing.

We do encourage readers to post both errata and doubts in this forum. However, we do not specify whether each one needs to be it's own thread. Some tips I recommend:
  • If something is a doubt or you need more explanation, make it's own thread
  • If it is just a list of typos, collect them and do one per chapter
  • Stick the publisher and chapter name in the subject


  • I've been adding page numbers to make this set of posts unique.

    And finally, thank you for posting. All the reader feedback we got from the Java 8 book definitely helped make the book you are reading stronger.

    Oh, and in this case the sentence is fine. We are both native English speakers. So we write in colloquial English, not the way a textbook would.
