Hi all.
What is the breakdown of questions per objective group in the SCJP exam. Is there some fixed proportion of questions for each objective group? In simpler words, what is the % of questions on GC,, java.util, etc.? I need this info in order to maximize the (exam score)/(time spent preparing) ratio

This is rough breakdown of questions:
Declaration & Access Control: 4
Flow Control & Exception Handling: 6-7
Garbage Collection: 1-2
Lang Funda: 7/8
Operators & Assignments: 7/8
Overloading & Overwriting: 4-9
Threads: 7-8
Java.lang: 4/5
Java.util: 3/4 5-7
Java.awt: 4-6
Exception Handling: 3-4
This is Rough distribution of marks as told by some of the ppl, however u should not take this as any reference. Infact, U should be thorough with the objectives and that's the fun of the exam
Bye, All The Best,
