Some Exam doubts

I have some doubts regarding to SCJP1.4 Exam. I have exam on this 24th dec.

Are following things on exam? because K&B does not discuss.
(1) CompareTo method
(2) Comparable interface.

Collections class seems somewhat confusing. I belive there is only one use of that: which is to make Collection concrete classes threadsafe. Can anybody highlight this from exam perspective?

which methods from List,Set,Map interface needs to be remembered?

I just gave exam today even I was in the same boat as you trying to cram all method signatures of Collection interface last moment.Given the exam I feel that was unnecessary..The main focus is on the functionality..For ex,u should hnow SortedMap is sorted..Set has unique elements..

In case u r scared to leave it off ,just give a read through unsderstanding the functionalities than the method signatures..
Hope this helps

hi there, sabastian is right

even if u could cram up the table 7.2 its fine
you may expect 2-3 quwstions at the most on Collection
