Are class/instance methods represented or created in memory like class/instance variables, or just in the bytecode file (.class)?

Methods are stored in the method area. See JVMS 3.5.4 Method Area for more information.

Geez, do I still have to read the JVMS in addition to the JLS in preparation for the exam?!?!
