Thanks everyone
For the preparation, I read KnB book and did the self test given in the book twice.Topics on exam are 100% covered in the book. Some questions were confusing. I have solved some mock questions on javabeat to revise the concepts.
Test was not very tough not very easy.There were around 8-9 questions on thread.Prepare Exception handling and method overriding properly.
Before taking the exam, i was scared of generics. But in exam, there are only 2 questions on this topic and they were simple.

While reading, make sure you keep in mind which exception will be thrown, not only some exception will be thrown. As one question was

And question was, Which exception wil be thrown.
