Well, the first thing I would do is - to check the syllabus on official Oracle website.
And Welcome to CodeRanch!
I know the syllabus by heart really. but there is not enough detail:
- Serialization could be included in "Use streams to read and write files"
- "Search parse and build Stings" could imply that StringBuilder is included.
Maybe someone who did the exam can shed some light on this?
I think that 'search, parse, and build Strings' is more related to String class and regular expressions than StringBuilder. However, after studying String class, StringBuilder and StringBuffer is not very big deal.
However, I'm not sure about whether serialization would be covered in file operation. Only an OCPJP can answer that (I'm SCJP )
I unsuccessfully took this exam about 6 weeks ago.
ALL the topics that you ask about were in the exam, although this was 6 weeks ago, so I'm forgetting now.
Regarding Strings, you also need more complicated regex processing, including search& replace.
Regarding FileIO you need all of it plus more, such as what API is used to write a Byte, eg know about streaming APIs, & look at other special purpose APIs.
I was surprised at the broad coverage of all the topics. There was at least 1 question about everything
