Depends on the exam you take. For the 1.4 exam, you will need to know what type of collection to use in a certain situation and what each of the collection objects do (features, are the methods synchronized?, etc.). I studied the chapter on collections for about a week although I had significant work experience to back me up. I would say if you're coming into collections blind, take triple that time, so 3 weeks.

I highly recommend the study guide written by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
