SCJP exam

I'm currently preparing to take the SCJP exam and am finding a lot of mention of topics that are not tested in the exam. I've also heard - on this forum - that serialization - is not covered ? I'm not having much luck searching for it but is there anywhere that has a pretty definitive list as to what is NOT on the current exam. Thanks.

You are correct that Serialization is no longer on the exam.

I don't know of a full list. I think the best thing to do is compare the objectives CURRENTLY on the Oracle website with whatever book you are using so you can skip the irrelevant ones.
This advice only applies to version 6 of the exam. For version 7, lots of topics were added.
