Hi Sanjana,
I think one should have a good view of the following classes.

Vector
Collection
Set
List
I think the best way have a good knowledge of java.util is to take the mock test and then find out what classes occures regulary there.Make a seperate
notes for major points related to SCJP.
Like
Set can't have dupilicate.
At the top of the util hierarchy is a Collection class and not Collection interface.
Don't waste too much time on knowing the details of each and every class
and Interface.
If anything u would like to correct then plz do it.

Hi Sanjana ,
I think , the Classes & Interfaces mentioned in the Kathey Siera Book are good enough.I am currently writing various mock exams & can able to answer 99% of Collection questions correctly .I studied Kathey Siera only .If you dont have the book , i can able to send the Chapter(650KB only).
Regards,
Yasin

Hi Allison Craig ,
Yes. Iam feeling K&B is good. After studying the K&B , i wrote 1-15 Don's Mock exams and got scores between 70's-80's. I dont think so & hope so that the real exams are that much difficult. Iam also reading other two books now which are not good as like Kathey & Bert. Going to take the exam in the month end......
Regards,
Yasin

Since the book, as you mentioned, is really good and helps you with your SCJP preparation dont you think you owe it to the authors not to illegally distribute its content to others? By giving out a copy of the book, you are violating copyright laws.
