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.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
