What do I need to know for the Java Certification for the Layout managers and AWT? And what are some good rules of thumb to help me remember how the layout managers resize and arrange the elements put in them.
Thanks!

You should be able to:
- Use the Component, Container, and LayoutManager classes to create a GUI with specified appearance and resize behavior.
- Distinguish the responsibilities of layout managers from those of containers
- Implement listener classes and methods and extract event information from an event.
- State the event class name for any specified listener in java.awt.event.
I don't know too many "rules of thumb" for the different layout managers, but in general FlowLayout treats lays out components to a text editor with word wrap, BorderLayout divides the container area much like a food tray, and GridLayout is nothing more than equally-sized cells of space. CardLayout is a stack of containers. Can't think of any q & d to describe GridBagLayout.
Hope this helps,
