I have a question concerning the SCJP exam. I'm studying AWT and I/O right now, and the review questions from Khalid and Rolf ask alot of questions about which methods this class have, or, what are the parameters of this particular method.
My question is: do we have to memorize these methods? I will certainly understand before I take the exam, but I don't seem to understand the point of memorizing all the methods a class has and what the parameters are?

The test will probably have a few questions that will ask you to pick the appropriate method to perform a described task such as drawing a line, or how to set the insets in a GridBagLayout. The answers are a list of method signatures that you select from. So in these areas it is a good idea to have a feel for what methods a class provides and the parameter lists for the various methods.
