I just got back from the test, one which I got 79% (47 of 59).
Here's my section breakdown:
87% Declarations and access control
100% Flow control and exception handling
0% Garbage Colletion
100% Language Fundamentals
42% Operators and Assignments
85% Overloading, Overriding, Runtime Type, and Object Orientations
71% Threads
100% The java.awt package
50% The java.lang package
50% The java.util Package
80% The java.io.Package
The test started out with a lot of IO, which was a weakness for me. There were two questions about the same constructor, which scared me because I didn't remember that version! Fortunately, I guessed right and got a high score on that section.
That Garbage Collection score is awful, but there was only one question.
There was a question about a method on Math that I had never heard of.
The threading questions were split between theocetical and code-based.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks. No questions that explicitly mentioned monitors, but there were one or two questions about thread blocking and using wait, notify, etc.
There was one question about GridBag, asking which Layout would be appropriate if you wanted certain GUI behavior, and one of the answers was GridBag.

Thanks.
No methods on util - just which collection were appropriate for which cases. Unfortunately, I didn't study all the possible options.
IO was mostly constructors. There was also a question on which constructors to string together.
I didn't get much on awt - the only one I remember is the GridBag I mentioned in an earlier post.
Threads was a combination of theory and code. Some questions about the use of wait, notify, etc with locks, but mostly code snippets asking what will happen.
