Are there many questions related to the API in the exam? Can you put it in approximate figures

The exam is a random selection of questions related to all objectives set in the exam specifications.

While there may be a mechanism to ensure that there will be a minimal number of questions from each category such mechanisms are not public so prepare like you would get only questions from the category you are weakest in.

But i have read that sun is interested in testing fundamentals and logic and not the API which can be accessed anytime while coding/designing java applications...

But you will have to be familiar with classes in the API as stated in the Exam Objectives (Section 4: Language Fundamentals). It would be a good idea to be familiar with the classes and methods because you are tested on the classes and interfaces mentioned in the exam objectives. Be sure to check out the Java API just to be on the safe side.

I hope this helps!
