There was only one question on garbage collection ,
at least 3 on exception handling,
3 on collection interfaces and classes
4 on threads
4-5 on IO and file handling
At least 4-5 that test your understanding of passing objects and primitives as parameters to methods.
2-3 on inner classes
one on the shift operator
one that had short circuit && operator
2 on switch statements
3-4 on AWT components and Layout managers
2-3 on AWT event model and related objects
3-4 that test your understanding of default values of primitves and objects when they are created but not initialized.
2 questions on overriding- surprisingly none on overloading
2-3 on access modifiers to methods.
2 on valid modifiers of classes and inner classes.
The most important thing I noticed is that most of the mock exams have questions orderd by topic - very closely related to the objectives. SO the first few question relate to the first objective and so on.
Not so on the real exam. The first few were garbace collection, IO and threads.
Hope this helps

Sonir :
I read RHE cover to cover twice. Second time around was after a gap of almost 4 weeks. But I was able to answer most of the questions at the end of each chapter ( average 9/10). I also did about 80-85% or more on the sample RHE tests, the one in the book and on the CDs.
I read the Mike Myer's book in the last week before the exam and did a whole lot of mock tests that are linked from Maha Anna's site.
I had read the Jaworski book in December, but I thought the chapters on threads and AWT were confusing.
For all the mock exams I took, I actually wrote ( well copied ) the code and tried to compile it and run it myself. I also read a lot of the API documentation on Sun's site and the tuptrials as well.
I happen to have more than 10 years experience in Object oriented , GUI programming so overloading, overriding, the difference between pass by value, pass by reference etc were easy for me.
Also, when I learnt programming ( in the days, when there was no MSDOS even )we started with binary math. So the shift operators were not that intimidating to me. Bless my teachers!
Hope this helps
