is null a keyword in java?

in the book "Programmer's Guide to Java Certification, A: A Comprehensive Primer, Second Edition" by By Khalid A. Mughal, Rolf W. Rasmussen
null true false are listed in the "Reserved Literals in Java" table not in the
"Keywords in Java" table.

but in the mock exam of the same book answer of one question is given as:
"Java has a keyword null, but not NULL"

in another book (written by jamie jaworski) i see this explanation:
"NULL, null, and main are not Java keywords."

now i am really confused. how should i answer the questions related with java keywords in java programmers exam?

null is not a keyword.
P.S Sometimes it is best to read books written by the creators of the language itself.

Ever so true; there are a lot of sloppy half baked authors out there that just want
a piece of the cake, no matter whether or not they've understood the subject they're
scribbling about: they're only in it for the money.

kind regards,

If you are done with Sun's tutorial go ahead and try the JLS itself.
You'll find all the links here.
