Is associativity of operators part of SCJP 1.4 exam objectives?

From the exam objectives:


- Determine the result of applying any operator (including assignment operators and instance of) to operands of any type class scope or accessibility or any combination of these.
- Determine the result of applying the boolean equals (Object) method to objects of any combination of the classes java.lang.String, java.lang.Boolean and java.lang.Object.
- In an expression involving the operators &, |, &&, || and variables of known values state which operands are evaluated and the value of the expression.
- Determine the effect upon objects and primitive values of passing variables into methods and performing assignments or other modifying operations in that method.

So, yeah, I'd understand associativity.

SCJP Tipline, etc.
I agree. Here's the link:
subject: Associativity
It's not a secret anymore!
