Could someone who has taken the exam already tell me if there are mostly questions about the specs like "Which specification gives support for doing this and that", "Is this feature already included in MIDP1.0", or are most questions about the actual APIs, i.e. basically code samples? In other words, is it enough to be able to program basic MIDlets? Can anyone recommend a good preparation book?

Um, no I think you would need a lot more knowledge. The questions are performance based, which means that you need to know what is in the Spec and how to apply it. No memorization questions like; What is the minimum number of threads that must be supported?
Also FYI, we have a special forum specifically for the certification, SCMAD. You can post your cert questions there.
As for the question about study books, AFAIK there aren't any books targeted specifically at this exam yet. Your best bet is to study the speficiations, read the study guides mentioned in the SCMAD forum, and practice coding.
