SCJD Exam questions

Hi Guys,
I have uploaded my assignment for SCJD to the sun website and I am waiting to take my exam next weekend.

1) Can someone post some sample questions they would ask in this exam ?
2) Please point me to existing threads in this forums (I couldnt search for any) if they exist
3) Also what are the things that I would have to explicity prepare? Right now I think a complete knowledge of the code I wrote should be sufficient but is there more?
4) I think the questions are descriptive and not objective. Can someone give general guidelines as to how long an answer should be etc?

Can we also put these things in http://faq.javaranch.com/java/ScjdFaq please?

Googling a bit gives me this thread
which answers my questions 1 and 2. But not 3 and 4

Essay exam questions in my personal opinion is really a recap of your choices.txt (design document). Typical questions are:
What networking did you implement (RMI or socket) and why?
How you implement your find/search method (aka the algorithm)?
How do you keep your code clear and mantainable by other/junior programmers?
What design patterns you use if any?
How you implement your locking mechanism?
How you ensure multithreading?
How you design your GUI (eg layout managers, events)?

I'm sure you can think of more.
