I think I got 5 questions on Design Patterns. There were no questions which asked to recognize a pattern from the UML diagram. Questions on patterns are quite trivial actually. Mostly they will be scenario based asking u identify the most relevant pattern for a given scenario.

My experiences were similar. SCEA Part 1 does not require very in depth knowlegde of either Design Patterns or UML. If you have read the inside covers of both Designs Patterns and UML Distilled a few times then that is probably enough.
Disclaimer: I do not condone doing just enough to pass.

However I have always recommended that candidates get a detailed understanding of the GoF patterns. Many Core J2EE patterns derive from GoF patterns and in general, all patterns will be invaluble for actual design.
In a study group I led a few months back, I made all members concentrate on patterns for abt 3 weeks.
HTH.
