The add(index, element) method for List returns nothing but table tells me boolean...

Welcome to the Ranch.

This tells me the return type of the method is void. Where does it say the method is supposed to return a boolean?

Which book/source has the table/code in question?

Consider reading QuoteYourSources.

I think you are referring to K & B

yes, boolean add(index, element) is a mistake

its void add(index, element) ...this versio of add method is defined in the List interface only
my source (Herbert Schildt - the complete reference for Java 7th Edition)
