I am using a book to study for the exam and it says the following: :
Common packages you will see on the exam are packages for
Abstrat Window Toolkit API
Java Swing API
Java Basic Input/Output API
Java Networking API
Java Utilities API
core Java Language API.
You will need to know the basic functionality that each package/api contains.
1) Is that the correct list of packages ?
2) what is "the basic functionality that each package contains" ?

Well, you just are going to be expected to know what the basic functions of the classes in those packages are. You won't need to know specific classes, just what those classes are and can do.
So, where might you find a Button that can be used on an application? Well, swing and awt packages. (Abstract Windowing Toolkit). What is the difference between Swing and AWT?
What package would contain collection classes, or classes to help tokenize Strings? That would be the util package.
What is the core package? java.lang
Where are objects used to read and write to a file system found? java.io
Those are the things you'll need to be familiar with as far as the basic Java packages go.
Here's some JavaDocs, although they are 1.4.2.
I agree. Here's the link:
