For me core Java covers the fundamentals of Java language,
1. Bytecode, JVM
2. OOP in Java
2. Threading
3. Collections

and CORE for me doesn't mean knowing the Java internals. How bytecode is generated and tuning the JVM. So don't worry and start enjoying the language,

"Core" basically just means the essentials or the foundation. According to Oracle - Java SE Core Technologies...

The Core Java technologies and application programming interfaces (APIs) are the foundation of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE). They are used in all classes of Java programming, from desktop applications to Java EE applications.


So no worries. As Sagar said, "core" does not refer to the lower-level inner workings.

Also, that mean, knowing the java.util and java.lang packages.
