Nested Classes in the Exam

Before I forget, the term "inner classes" in the exam includes static nested classes. So be careful. In other words, use "loose language" when reading "inner classes" in the exam. I hope they change the wording in the future. I had to guess that's what they meant, and the only thing that gave me a hunch was the simplicity of the topic as treated in the exam. It doesn't try to get too technical on that.

In 'real life' (I hate that term; how many lives are there? I know of only one) inner classes do not include static nested classes. The term nested should be used. Inner are one type of nested classes.
FINALLY: Remember I just got a random sampling of 59 questions and the test is not always the same.
