I did a quick search to see if there has been any recent discussion on exactly which exceptions to know for the SCJP 5.0 exam. The K&B book has a list in chapter 5 of 10 exceptions that we should know.

However, I feel that there are more that we should know, ie: IOException, FileNotFoundException, StringIndexOutOfBoundsException, NotSerializableException, and I'm sure there are more. These are all exceptions that have occurred in mini programs that I have been writing while preparing for this exam.

So my question is, how much, if anything, do I need to learn about these exceptions? I'm going back this coming Friday for attempt #2 on the exam and I want to be sure that I will not be stumped by a block of code that is not in a try/catch block when it should be, or that has a runtime exception that I didn't know I should be on the lookout for.

Thanks in advance!

PS I found this a helpful way to study exceptions.

EDIT: Added more exceptions that the book doesn't cover specifically.
