strictfp is not covered on the exam.
however, for information,
java 2 development allowed the relaxation of the foating point model(with respect to the earlier versions of java). strictfp may be used with classes or methods, and its usage will ensure tht the floating pt calcs, are carried out with the same precision as earlier java versions.
note that the relaxation was carried out to facilitate faster computations
hth,
chetan
