Just the opposite, many not-so-efficient or very unefficient data structures in java.util package. If you design your own data structure to fit your specific data needs, you can make it a lot more efficient. Java has some fundamentally not-so-efficient stuff build-in.

Well, that is sorta true. BUT you're better off learning the standard util collection classes and getting familiar with how they work, since they're going to be standard.
Then of course, if you run into something specific in your programming career that you realize can't be solved with the standard classes, then you can think about implementing something yourself...or better yet, finding something commercial or opensource already done for you.
But stick with the basics at first.
