Since the questions that I posted about the appendices of the book were lost, because of Disk Crash of the JavaRanch, I am going to post it again.

In Appendix A, there are answers to Mastery Checks as the title of the chapter says. Are the Mastery Checks after each chapter? Or is it a big check at the end of the book? Is it sthing like exercises for each topic of a chapter or all overview in general?

Does Appendix B: Using Java's Documentation just talk about the way how to find and download the API and search the classes or methods inside the API? Or is there anything special in that appendix?

Thanks you, Mr.Herbert.

Thanks for asking again.

Appendix A contains the answers to the Mastery Checks that end each chapter. These are quizes that test the reader's understanding of the material contained within the chapter.

Appendix B explains how to use Java's Documentation Comments.
