I disagree with Jelle. If you study thoroughly, you will learn this stuff. Sounds like you work hard. Reading is good and is where a lot of your knowledge comes from. But I stress the need to practice that knowledge to make sure you really understand it. When you learn a new concept, write some code yourself (try from memory) to demonstrate it, don't just read through some example code. Finally, check out the Certification FAQ for some mock testing/quizzing resources that will further hone your knowledge. I always think I know something until I test myself or go to write some code and then find myself wondering about those nitty gritty details.

Don't get me wrong I'm all for studying thoroughly, but studying thoroughly != reading the SCJP 5 Study Guide 10 hours a day in my opinion.
Learning this material takes time, so take that time and spend it reading, practicing and reiterating at a reasonable pace that allows you to actually retain the knowledge.
