K&B - Need Summary Figure for Modifiers?

I'm wondering if anyone else feels this way. I'm not brand new to java, but I've never really had all the access and non-access modifiers nailed down to the degree that you need to for the exam. I've just finished chapter 2 in Kathy's book and kind of feel like I need (or the book needs) some tables that summarize all that stuff in a concise way. I haven't thought this through, so I don't even know off hand if that's possible or what it would look like, but when I was just reviewing, I found myself flipping back and forth a fair amount. It's probably obvious my brain is fairly fried at the moment. Please don't flame me for such an incoherent post. I was just wondering if anyone could relate.

Great idea!

Actually, when we update the book it's going to have tons more tables and diagrams than it does now! We've been pushing on our publishers and they've agreed that inserting tables and figures and diagrams and such should be WAY easier than it is. It was INCREDIBLY difficult to add figures and such when we first wrote the book, but we've been assured it will be much easier next time.

In the meantime, it might be a great exercise for you to create this table - and I'm sure you would be a hero here on this forum if you posted it for all of us
