I am getting ready to sit the 1.4 SCJP exam in the UK. I am using the Heller and Roberts book as a study guide. In the book there is a chapter dedicated to Input and Output, readers, writers, streams etc. If I look at the topics tested in the exam on the Java.com website, there is no mention of these subjects. Although, I thought I had seen them there before. Have they recently been removed as part of the exam? Or am I mistaken? Bobbie
