Wellcome to the Ranch Nart.
You are supposed to know wheter a type is an interface or a class. Also to know wich implementation is more suitable for a given scenario.
However I would recommend you to work a little with API before taking the exam.
This chapter will suffice by large.

SCJP2. Please Indent your code using UBB Code

Off the top of my head, you need to know:
1. The main interfaces: Collection, Map, List, Set.
2. Implementing subclasses: Vector, ArrayList, LinkedList, Hashmap, Treemap, TreeSet
3. The iterators: Iterator, ListIterator
4. the Collections class
I agree. Here's the link:
