The exam also convers the new printf stuff. All the syntax and conversion details are under java.util.Formatter in the API. So while they've taken a lot out, they've added some very detail oriented topics.
Ok, the Math class... I guess technically you could say that the Math class might play a teenie, tiny role in the exam, but if you get a Math question it will be on a common sense level. Put it this way, if you budget 500 hours to study for the exam (which would be a BIG budget), and you allot 5 minutes of study for the Math class, I'd say you spent too much time on the Math class
This does lead to a good study tip though... if you see a class mentioned in a question, and that class isn't in the objectives, then the question isn't really about that class. In other words sometimes the exam writers will use such a class as a 'red herring', a distraction.

Haha,what you said is perfecly true.
Tha questions I came across was indeed intended to test another objective. A field/method in math class was trivially inclued in that question and even a pupil would know what that stands for!
