I have not written the test, so I would not know, but through previous posts I come to understand that one need not memorize all methods.

No, it is not necessary to memorize the methods of the collections classes. Instead, you just need to understand which implementation of a collection is most appropriate for a particular application. For example, if you need to store key/value pairs would you use a List or a Map?
