Does the SCJCP exam as you about your proficiency on each of it's topics in the beginning of the exam? Do they use your answers to dictate difficulty of the questions you get on the exam?

The questions are picked at random from the database, there is no "adaptive" selection of questions.

Is the difficulty of any given question asked is based upon the correctness of the previous set of questions answered. ??

Once the exam engine is fired up, your fate is sealed... nothing you do or don't do will change the questions you'll get.

Sulbha Jan, that type of question selection is sometimes called "adaptive testing", the Sun system does not use it. As Bert says, once the exam engine starts the questions you get be fixed and will not be influenced by any answers you give.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
