I am preparing for SCJEA exam. I would like to know what design patterns are covered in this exam and what books are recommended for design patterns.

As the objectives state you need to be familiar with the patterns contained in the Design Patterns book by Gamma, et. al.
Good luck!

I've read the book "UML in a nutshell". It describes 9 types of design patterns : statecharts, objects, classes, collaboration,
sequence, deployment,etc, etc.
Which of these 9 patterns are useful in Architect exam (in depth)?

what you mentioned are not really design patterns. They are components or terminologies of the UML language for drawing the object and sequence diagrams, etc.
I agree. Here's the link:
