A few issues :
1) For scjp1.4 cert do we need to know about strictfp?
2) Im not sure I understand what strictfp is. Would appreciate if some one can throw some light on this.
2) strictfp can be used with a class, method but not a variable. What about the following circumstances:
a) Interface
- Interface method
b) Inner non static class
- Inner non staic class method
c) Inner static class
- Inner static class method
d) local class
- local class method
e) Constructor

Hi Bobby.
According to Kathy and Bert's new book,
"You won't need to know how strictfp works..."
"For the exam, you need to know only that strictfp is a keyword and can be used to modify a class or a method, but not a variable."
Hope that helps.
