In the Jaworski web site http://www.jaworski.com/java/certification/
Java 2 Programmer Exam Review Questions
I found the following question and answer
Q> Is a class a subclass of itself?
A> A class is a subclass of itself.
Is it true?

Not according to the Java Language Specification. As usual though, different people may have their own definitions of terms which don't follow the JLS. I seriously doubt this particular point will come up on the exam; no one has mentioned it to my knowledge. Of course, that might just mean that no one thought it was worth commenting on, since the answer is fairly obvious IMO as long as you haven't read Jaworski.

Thanks Jim,
Yes, it is obvious. That's why I was a little confused.
