The following is quoted in Strings, IO etc Chapter of K & B referring Objective 3.4.

In fact, we'll admit it right up front, you might encounter questions on the exam that use classes that aren't specifically mentioned in the Sun objective.


Does it mean, we need to learn some more API other than mentioned in the K & B ?? If so, can you tell me what are the other things that need to be learnt ??

Don't worry; if you've studied the whole K&B book carefully and if you score well on the questions in the book, then you can be sure that you are well prepared for the exam.

Hi!
W.r.t Objective 3.4 of SCJP (as mentioned in K & B), do we need to study any other classes and the methods (mentioned below) in K&B.
Use standard J2SE APIs in the java.text package to correctly format or parse dates, numbers, and currency values for a specific locale; and, given a scenario, determine the appropriate methods to use if you want to use the default locale or a specific locale. Describe the purpose and use of the java.util.Locale class.


If we study the following classes and methods in java.text.* and java.util.* w.r.t Dates, Numbers and Currency is it sufficient for the SCJP5.0 exam or do we need to study any other classes or methods other than those mentioned in the K&B.

java.util.Date
java.util.Calendar
java.text.DateFormat
Java.text.NumberFormat
Java.util.Locale



Do we get questions, on any other classes? If so please let me know what classes and methods do i need to prepare for the SCJP5.0 exam!!
