I'm using your book to study for the exam, so I was kinda surprised to find that one of the example questions in the bundled test from Enthuware caught me out when I was asked about <env-entry>.

It sounds like the exam requires knowledge of any aspect of the deployment descriptor, so I guess it is quite valid to be asked about <env-entry>.... or is it?

So, err, how come section 5.2 forgets to mention this (and other properties) in web.xml? Shouldn't it at least say that it is an imcomplete list and encourage the reader to also read and familiarise him/herself with the full spec? Or am I missing something?
