Is the following the complete list of Unchecked exceptions for SCJP 5.0 purposes?

* ArithmeticException
* ClassCastException
* ConcurrentModificationException
* IllegalArgumentException
* IllegalMonitorStateException
* IndexOutOfBoundsException
* NullPointerException
* NumberFormatException

Also, is it better to memorize just the unchecked exceptions and consider everything else checked to make things easier for study? I am only asking for the SCJP 5.0 purposes.

Thanks

I don't think its necessary to memorize all unchecked exceptions.Wat u must know is RuntimeException n all its subclasses are unchecked Exceptions.

Some unchecked like ArithmeticException, ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException or NullPointerException is very clear. There is nothin in it to memorize. All the unchecked exceptions r due to some runtime error in ur code which compiler can't detect at compilation time. Dats y they are called unchecked.

I agree that NullPointerException and Arithmetic exceptions are very easy to figure out. It's just the specificity that worries me.

I hope the exam does mention for example that an exception of an illegaArgumentException is a super class of NumberFormatException.
