Hey Igor,
As far as the EL questions are concerned, I suggest you to be thoroughly prepared the operators mentioned i.e. . and [] operator. Most of the EL questinos revolve around these two. Sincere suggestion, prepare very well for EL and JSTL. They are going to cost big time in the exam.
I think its already late for Beta, but Good Luck anyways. Thanks.

I've taken beta on saturday, (7 feb).
As for now - really it's late.
But just in case someone will need this to prepare a real exam...
My impressions:
Exam is heavily toward custom tags development / EL / JSTL.
Both classic and simple tags should be well prepared.
You need to know all the details.
EL questions are not tough at all but you need to understand all the details... You need to experiment a with [] and . operators and understand clearly how are they use and when exactly they work in the same way and could be interchanged. Pay attention on how you could access attributes from all contexts. Play with accessing all implicit objects and their properties. Pay attention on shadowing of objects with the same name stored in diff. places. Infinity, conversions from types to types should be closely examined...
I agree. Here's the link:
