Hi all,
I wonder whether the methods of Collections is needed in the exam, like the function return values, parameters or which Collections has which functions etc. This is because there is no such topic in the Kathy & Bert book, but I saw many questions regrarding this topic in some mock exams.

Welcome to JavaRanch, David!
You can rest assured that K&B covers the collection topics adequately for the purpose of the exam. Any other collection knowledge you gain is awesome however supplementary.
