Section 5.2. says:

                          (p+1)/4    3            (p-3)/4
                 x = (u/v)        = u  v (u^5 v^3)         (mod p)

It should say:

                          (p+1)/4            (p-3)/4
                 x = (u/v)        =  u (u v)         (mod p)


The original text was correct (verified by Nick Sullivan).
