Exam Essentials

Methods are overloaded if they have the same method name but a different "argument" list.

It should say "parameter list" instead of "argument list".
When you define a method is parameter list.
When you use a method you type the "argument list".

While this is the terminology I use too, but that's not absolute.

There is also terminology used which says: "actual arguments" and "formal arguments". Maybe author(s) those had in mind.

Quick test as a proof:

javac Test.java (pay attention to reason)
