I heared that SCJA Beta Exam has many SCJP 'kind of' questions. I wanna know what all concepts it covers like Method Overriding, Method Overloading, Strings or bit more complicated ones like GC and Threads.


Thanks in Advance

SCJA exam objectives overlap in part with SCJP, but SCJA cover all thats Java in breadth, not in depth ( SCJP covers core java in great depth ). Please refer the
SCJA exam objectives.
There is no explicit mention of method overloading and overriding, but I guess this is covered in Section 3) Java Implementation of Object-Oriented Concepts.
Strings is covered in Section 4.6) Develop code that uses the concatenation operator (+), and the following methods from class String: charAt, indexOf, trim, substring, replace, length, startsWith, and endsWith.
There is no mention of Threads and Garbage collection.
You can read about the exam experiences of candidates who have already taken the exam.

Actually, section 6.2 mentions threading. Questions in the real exam for this topic are at a very high level. You might have a question regarding the use of threads to make a GUI responsive, but you won't see any Java code.

"Section 6.2) RMI and threading" I believe is to do with how RMI uses multithreading and these would be very high level.
Its not expected to have questions asking about Thread class, Runnable interface, use of wait, notify, notifyAll, synchronised method versus synchronised block, overriding the run method but starting a new Thread by calling the start method. I do not expect these SCJP kind of Thread questions.
