Hi ranchers!
I'm re-reading Kathy & Bert's OCA JAVA SE 8 Exam Guide.
Very accurated book, you can see many people work hard on it.
Anyway I cought two small bugs and I post here because there're no other place to report to.
One is 'organizational' and one technical.

The first one is at page 58 in the first on "the job!" paragraph.
The last sentence: "[...]Java provides a wide variety of Collection types to address these situations, but the only collection type on the exam is ArrayList, and Chapter 5 discusses ArrayList in more detail."
It's the Chapter 6 that discusses ArrayList.

The second one is at page 50 where it is discussed var-arg parameter, the basic sintax list-point:
"To declare a method using var-arg parameter, you follow the type with an ellipsis (...), a space, and the nameof array that will hold the parameters received."
In fact you can omit the space or you can put a space between the type and the ellipsis, or you can put as many spaces as you want around the ellipsis.
At least javac 1.8.0_31 enables the following code:
