How do I study for Threads?

I was hoping that there would only be 3-4 thread questions. That even if I got them all wrong I could still pass. The thinking behind that was up till a couple of day ago everyone that took the exam was saying they wish they concentrated more on fundemetals. So I went back and ignore the hard stuf like thread and concentrated on the basic.
But now I'm reading the other posts and people are saying they've see more than 12 question on Threads. So now I'm taking it a lot more seriously.
The only think I know at this point(which is the only thing I got out of readn about threads) is just the definition of
synchronized, wait, yield, notify, and so on.
How far will just knowing the definitions take me?
How don't even now how to go about practicing it?
Any one know any good long exam just on threads so that I can acquaint my self with the questions.
Can someone who has already taken the exam give some pointers as to what they wish they did diferently?
I just know I'm going to get 0% of Threads.
