# Study Guide Corrections-Spatz

**Study Guide Corrections **Publishers print several thousand copies of a book when it comes out (first printing). For a second printing, they correct small errors that the author identifies.

The corrections that follow are arranged by the printing: 1

^{st}, 2

^{nd}, etc. To determine what printing your book is, turn to the back of the first page (which faces the dedication). In the middle of the left column there is a string of numbers. The first number on the left is the printing for your book.

First printing corrections are below. Following the correction, I've listed the name and school of the first person who reported the error.
