I have just started my preparation for the 1.4 exam. From the SUN www site, I obtained a list of the topics that I want to run by some people who may have taken the exam already...

Section 1: Declarations and Access Control
Section 2: Flow Control, Assertions and Exception Handling
Section 3: Garbage Collection
Section 4: Language Fundamentals
Section 5: Operators and Assignments
Section 6: Overloading, Overriding, Runtime Type and Object Orientation
Section 7: Threads
Section 8: Fundamental Classes in the java.lang Package
Section 9: The Collections Framework

Now, I noticed that there was nothing on GUI (AWT, SWING, Windows and Applets), and nothing on I/O. I'm soooo glad there is no GUI, since I don't really see much of that in the job listings anymore! I DO want to verify that I don't have to worry about this stuff for the test... Thanx in advance for all replies!

That's right: for SCJP 1.4 no AWT,Swing, nor IO.

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.
