I recently passed the exam(on 20th Aug), the questions on thread r 4-5, you have to be well prepared for it. I don't have any news like 80% of the questions will be on threads in exam.

hi this is not related to the threads or IO, but I think this is more related to the 80 % Questions containing the code fragments so more emphasis is given on practical java and less on theortical java ....
please correct me if I am wrong

the exam can never be the same ...
It changes each time since it is a completely randon engine which generates Questions at Random time and in any order but still covers all the objectives in correct ways ....
so not to worry and not too happy about the same exam again ....
I think if fundamentals are strong then you do not need to worry about how the questions are ...
but you must be prepared for it .... of course and it preparation needs practice which makes you perfect ....

as even I am doing the same ....

I can tell you that I took the exam last Tuesday (great timing, eh?) and I was extremely surprised when 4 or 5 of the questions dealt specifically with I0. I have two certification study guides; an older copy of the Roberts/Heller/Ernest guide, which says the IO chapter is "essential background", and a recently purchased copy of the Syngress title that DOESN'T EVEN MENTION IO! I missed all of these questions as they were multiple answer and you needed to know specific methods. I had read the material and even done some IO coding in the past, but I hadn't looked at it recently and I was lost. If I'd known the rest of the material as well as I thought I did, it wouldn't have been a big problem, but as it was, those questions were the difference between my getting a low but passing grade and failing.
So far none of the practice tests have had any IO questions either, so I'm having some trouble preparing for that part of the exam.

I suggest you look at my material, it covers every topic that will come up on the exam.
