A humble request to all those who have taken Part I. Can you please guide the aspirants as to whether we should try to remember the APIs involved in this exam.

I don't recall a single 'coding' question on part 1, and I did the 350 question beta. It's not an API exam, but more about concepts.

I just cleared part 1 of Version 5 2-3 weeks ago. I did not come up with any question needing to know APIs by heart. It is completely concept based. However you will need to know what type of APIs are available though details of APIs are not necessary, as per my experience.

Indeed, so you'll need to know what the JPA API is, and how it fits into EJB3, and where it can be used, but as for knowing actual classes and methods by name, don't worry.

Thanks Cameron and Kenny!

So if I understand it correctly, I need to know the lifecycle of Servlets but need not remember the signatures of the do* methods. Also, I need to know the capabilities of JSTL, but need not know the exact tag signatures. I hope my understanding is correct.
