I just took the exam and passed with 98%. I spent 8 weeks studying (I already knew some java prior to this). I studied RHE, Exam Cram and Jaworski. I think RHE was the most helpful. I also took 20+ mock exams. The ones closest to my actual score were: JQuest, Javaprepare.com, RHE exam (on CD with book) and Jval. I think the RHE is the best mock exam because the questions are most like the real exam and you don't have to worry about mistakes (most mock exams I found on the web had several mistakes).
My exam had the following types of questions (other than fundamentals):
I/O 4 (including 1 about sockets)
Thread 4-5 (including 1 about media tracker)
Garbage collection 2
Layout Managers 4 (including 1 about grid bag)
Surprisingly, I also had 8 questions that were fill in the blank!!
The focus is on fundamentals rather than constructors/methods for particular classes although you will get a few like that.
Thanks to everyone here who answered my questions!

I think it's "The complete Java 2 Study Certification Guide" written by Simon Roberts Philip Heller, Michale Ernest. RHE is the first letter of their lastnames.

om & padmini , this seems to be very old thread. I think there are many naming policy voilators are also there. but , they may not be around as the thread is very old thread. I am moving this thread to Certification results forum which I feel is appropriate forum.
Regarding your question of using quotes or not , there is alot of discussion in Results forum , which will be useful to you.
or you can start the new thrad there.
Thus , I am closing the thread also.
I hopw this is acceptable to all.
