This soul began to dwell in this body named Ganesh Patekar since 31/07/1987 in Solapur, Maharashtra, India.
Being youngest child in the family had happy childhood but I was also an obstinate kid As days go by I became more amiable.
I had persuaded Bachelors of computer application( BCA, Batch 2007-10 ) from Sinhgad College of Science, Pune. I’m so greedy about learning so couldn’t stop there so persuaded Master of computer application ( MCA ) from Sinhgad Institute of Management, Pune. I used to act as emcee and compare in college events. Those were the best days of life.
I really adore to learn new things. I always eager to write a beautiful code I enjoy visiting natural places near by Pune on weekends.
I’m passionate about maintaining good physic so I do yoga, pranayama and workout regularly because I think, health is wealth.
Pune, Maharashtra, India.

Here is the OCAJP Wall of fame reading their story will be helpful to see how others prepared for the exam. I would not recommend using any IDE while preparing for this exam since IDE helps you in so many ways, better use any text editor. Write the code in text editor, analyse It and guess whether It compiles Or not then compile and see you were correct Or not, If runs successfully then what would be the output?  asking such questions to yourself and answering them will clear all your doubts.
Congratulations all of you !!  

And thank you !!

I've checked OCAJP8: 1Z0-808 syllabus It's not there but It is mentioned in OCPJP8: 1Z0-809 but as Campbell said you better refer Oracle's official site for such information which is always up to date before taking any exam.

not other way round.

No, enclosing class can access private members of inner class.

Also private member of inner class is accessible in another inner class (of same enclosing class) which is already stated in Campbell's JLS quote.
Here is an example

But I might misunderstanding the wording.

Yes It is all about wording that's why hats off to those who document JLS.

Agreed I was wrong. I didn't think of private members declared in inner class.

Agreed since the book clearly explains The values in each case statement must be compile-time constant values of the same data type as the switch value under the heading of Compile-time Constant values.

Stephan van Hulst wrote:An overview:
private: Only code within the same source file can access the member.

I don't think so since a source file (a .java file) can have code of another class which doesn't have access to the private member of another class defined in the same source file. (a source file)

Rather I would say private members are directly accessed only within the class they are declared in.
