I'm back... that didn't take long! I am taking an online course as well as using the Head First Java book. The online course discusses the Switch statement, but the book doesn't. Is the Switch something that is now outdated? Or was it put into the language after the book was published? Just need to know if this is something I should spend time learning.

The switch block is still in common use, maybe less so if you use Swing because you can have on-screen menus rather than text menus.
