I understand Java as a whole, but what do I really need to flat out memorize for the exam?

Java.lang - String, StringBuffer
Java.util - All the interfaces and the major classes and bulk methods, ie Hashtable, Vector, etc.
Those are off the top of my head.

Everything mentioned above, plus:
java.lang - wrapper classes, Math, Object, especially Thread
java.awt - all the GUI controls, components, menus, layouts (especially GridBagLayout (!) )
java.awt.event - event listeners
- scopes of primitives
- conversions
- operator precedence
Best of luck to you!
