Where can I get more info on assertion and other stuff which are newly inducted int SCJP1.4.
Please do reply.

Hi Babitha,
Firstly, the exam is not very tough for you to be worried. At the same time you should spend sufficient time on the following topics:
1.) Threads (make sure that you know the usefulness of various functions like sleep etc)
2.) Collections
3.) Wrapper classes
4.) Assertions (not tough but not used much in normal programming)
5.) hashCode()-equals()
You may also find my article on SCJP 1.4 (first published at IBM developerWorks) useful:

Regards and best wishes,
Pradeep
