In Chapter 12 on page 164, the book is describing how to write a record into a random access file. In the FIELD statement, the first two items in a record are called first$ and last$.

However, in the loading up of the variables before the PUT statement, they are referred to as firstName$ and lastName$. This error persists through the rest of the chapter as more example code is revealed.

EDIT: The problem also spills over into Chapter 13.

Chapter 9's quiz has a slight typo:

"Use the ___________ window command add a handler for closing a window."

This typo could be improved by using one of the following:

"Using the ________ window command adds a handler for closing a window."

OR

"Use the ___________ window command to add a handler for closing a window"
