In the book:
Oracle Certified Associate Java® SE 8 Programmer I, Study Guide, Exam 1Z0-808 by Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff, the following is written:

from the snippet above, in the statement below the code, I believe an error may have been made. Is it not "... a reference variable called name of type String..."?
I am not sure about this one but I really need some confirmation so that I redo the chapters explaining that if I need to.
