I have few questions on Collections:
1- Can anyone please enumerate the interfaces and classes that need to be known (behavior wise) for the exam? OR are all the classes and interfaces related to Collections in the java.util.* package required to be known (behavior wise)?
More over, what is needed to be known about each interface / class in the Collections framwrok?
2- How far should I be concerend about iterators? should I Know who each iterator for each class works?
Thanks for all those who replied the 3rd Qs. But anyone have an answer to the first 2 Qs? I added another part to the first Q.
3- Has anyone got a good resource on Collections that is written for the purpose of the exam, not just another tutorial that talks about Collections? I mean a concentrated, packed, dry, straight to the point resource.
Thanks in advance

The following link will be available on the new updated FAQ page, but here it is.
Ashraf Fouad made what he calls a "Concentrated Guide to SCJP 2". That's maybe exactly what you are looking for. From far, this is the best notes I have ever seen up till now.

Hi Alfred,
While going thru the collections topic, I had collected the relevant Java APIs for the exam and created a document comparing these classes.
May be this helps you.
