How to Tell which Printing You Have

On the copyright page (facing the first page of the Preface), there is a printing history of the book. The printing history is a row of numbers that—at the 1st printing—looks like this:

10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

At each subsequent printing, one number is removed from the end of this row of numbers to indicate which printing of the book you have. For example, the last number in the row of numbers in the 2nd printing is 2, and so on.

[B3C2] = fixed in Big Java's 3rd printing, Java Concepts 2nd printing
[B3] = fixed in Big Java's 3rd printing

Page numbers have a prefix B for Big Java or C for Java Concepts.
