Given:

In[1]:= RandomComplex[{0, 1}, 5]

Out[1]= {0.031873580468932516 + 0. \[ImaginaryI],
  0.5275216955764901 + 0. \[ImaginaryI],
  0.665414621684336 + 0. \[ImaginaryI],
  0.11248161136844037 + 0. \[ImaginaryI],
  0.3548022392621708 + 0. \[ImaginaryI]}

In[2]:= $Version

Out[2]= 6.0 for Mac OS X PowerPC (32-bit) (June 19, 2007)

I conclude there is simply an error in the tutorial
