I believe Yes. I just took the exam on Saturday, some thread questions that I encountered asked about that.

Interesting: I have just read the Thread chapter in the Sierra/Bates SCJP2 book and do not recall seeing these methods mentioned. InterruptedException yes, but not these methods.
Also the above mentioned book does not mention that Thread.join() throws InterruptedException.
I did however fall asleep a few times... I'd better double check.
