I have a simple question regarding SCJP 6 course content. Are serialization question asked in SCJP 6 exam? I have come to know that this topic is excluded from the exam.

Please guide.

I recently given the exam there was not a single question on serialization.
I think it is excluded.It is very easy topic you can learn in small amount of time.

I am planning to take SCJP 6 next week. All those who took the exam recently did any of you guys came across Serialization questions? Please let me know as I don't want to invest my time learning something which is not in the exam. I have checked Oracle's website and I couldn't find it in the "Exam Topics" section whereas in the K & B book this topic exists.

Please advise.

I think the topics are here http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=41&p_exam_id=1Z0_851

There is that:

Section 4: Concurrency
Write code to define, instantiate, and start new threads using both java.lang.Thread and java.lang.Runnable.
Recognize the states in which a thread can exist, and identify ways in which a thread can transition from one state to another.
Given a scenario, write code that makes appropriate use of object locking to protect static or instance variables from concurrent access problems.

How is Concurrency related to Serialization? Isn't concurrency a different topic than Serialization?

Concurrency is multi-threading , while serialization is related to object persistence.
