A Tip slightly improved

Hi All,

This is my first post. Currently I am preparing for OCJP 6 exam. Studying the study guide by Kates & Bert. While reading the Introduction under the heading "Tips on Taking the Exam" it states:

"Check for syntax errors first: count curly braces, semicolons, and parenthesis and then make sure there are as many left ones as right ones. Look for capitalization errors and other such syntax problems before trying to figure out what the code does."

A very good tip and I just want to optimize the tip by saying that "Do the above ONLY when you see a 'compilation fails' or 'error on line #' or similar choice in the answers. Otherwise start figuring out what the code does."

I hope this helps.

Regards,


OCPJP (6)
