Hey guys,
For those of you that have already taken the Sun exam, when it comes to exceptions, I know the rules etc, will the questions be like the ones in Exam Cram and Complete Java 2 study guide, where they show you the exception tree, or do I need to memorize the exceptions tree from the api? I got about a week to dday, and I am just fine tuning, so I wanted to know how far to tweak my exceptions knowledge.

I was thinking of posting the same question today. I hope that SUN does not require us to memorize what Exceptions are checked and unchecked and what is the exception hierarchy.

You definitely must be able to recognize checked and unchecked exceptions, at least the most common ones (ArithmeticException, RuntimeException,...)
