Are the questions in exam do follow Exam Objectives specified at Sun's site? like, in sun objectives, it is clearly written that for .lang package, questions will be from .Math and String class only. Does this mean we are supposed to study these classs only for .lang package? Also the objectives clearly says, for .util package, the questions will be only to select the proper collection class/interface given the crieteria. it does not say coding will bethere on collection. How seriously one should take these objectives?

I think it's dangerous to take the objectives literally and as a result only learn the classes they mention. I took the test yesterday and there were a whole bunch of questions on StringBuffer which is not mentioned explicity (I don't think) in the objectives. I would take the approach of learning quite thoroughly any packages they mention and I would also take the time to learn the Collections APIs as well as just their general features (uniqueness/sorting etc) - you never know, you may need to use them one day! I don't know how pressured you are for time, but there would be nothing more annoying than getting questions which you don't stand a hope of getting right just because they're on areas you haven't revised.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
