yes. the book is tailored accoring to the objectives for the exam. although exam objectives does not mention specific methods you need to know for the exam but book fairly covers almost all the method which you need to know for the exam. you should do mock exams for scjp exams and if there is new api in those mocks go through the javadocs for that method. this way you will increase your vocab of java api and at the sametime will help you prepare for the exam.

well, if you are programming in Java and familiar with API than it really helps but if you are not doing active programming than Yes. but sound knowledge of java.lang, java.util are must.
