Before I answer that question I hope that U have done some preliminary groundwork for your SCJP.
As far as I am concerned, I went thru the Java basics and then took a couple of tests to evaluate myself and also to get to know my weakpoints. This pattern continued till about 15 days before the examination and when I was pretty confident that I have ironed out a lot of my weakpoints I registered for the test.
This pattern worked out for me pretty good.
As the questions cover all the aspects of the SCJP objectives it is pretty important that U study all the points.

Welcome to javaranch.
You could reach the objectives foll the link. Please note everything is important.
I don't think anyone can tell you specifically that this is not
important or something like that....
Just suggesting!
Btw, nothing is difficult either, just needs some/lot of
homework and everything you do eventually will help you.

thanks Ajay kumar,
but most of the exam (i.e.) mock which i took was covering
basic java not awt,utilities,string class. i have been reading
java 2 certification study guide by Simon Roberts i found
that most of the mock exam including in java ranch which i
have done yesterday were covering only first 6 chapters.

Initially one gets the impression that the first 6 chapters of the RHE guide are the most important - well it is not true. I will emphasize that ALL the chapters are important as EVERY MARK counts.
Java Ranch has a link to the list of Mock Exams available. It is at
Good luck
