J2EE and Gang of Four Patterns. Which ones should I worry more?

I read sometime in a place which GoF Patterns are more commum to apper in SCEA exam but I can't remenber where I read.
Which GoF and J2EE Patterns should I give more attention in my studies?
I am using "Core J2EE Patterns: Best Practices and Design Strategies, Second Edition" but I know that some of the Patterns in this book are no more used. For example, in http://eclecticprogrammer.com/2007/10/18/core-j2ee-patterns/ is possible to see a author pointing some J2EE Patterns no more used. Shoud I study just the most used? Then, which ones are most probably to appear in the exam?
About GoF, I am just using "O'Reilly - Head First Design Patterns - 2004". In that book, just some part of the GoF patterns are explained and this is making my learnning easier.
I know that every GoF patterns are useful, but for this moment, I am focused to be approved in the SCEA Part I exam.

For the patterns not being used, you can refer to the JEE Real World patterns book by Adam Bien also mentioned in my blog:

The majority of exam questions are about JEE patterns, not GoF.

Sharma Ashutosh, thanks for your answer, but, now I can't buy one more book. I am interested to know which JEE Patterns I shoud worry more for first part of the exam. Can you tell me?

Yegor Bugayenko, thanks for your answer. It helped me to focus my energy in JEE Pattern instead of GoF Pattern. Do you know which ones are more used in the exam first part?

You can refer to the link http://java.boot.by/scea5-guide/ch07.html. If you follow them it enough for part I.

If I was you I'd make sure you know all the GoF and JEE patterns. While one person may have seen just JEE patterns it doesn't mean that the GoF are not in the exam. As an example, I read on a previous post that there are hardly any JSF questions on the exam....I had 7 - if it's on the exam requirements you should study it! (plus if you are taking this exam I would expect you would be reasonably familiar with the GoF patterns anyway)

As an architect-I will say better learn all the design patterns irrespective of whether they are GoF or JEE patterns. SCEA5 has many sets and you can't predict which one you will get. It's better to be more prepared
