I am planning to take SCJP 6 next week. All those who took the exam recently did any of you guys came across Serialization questions? Please let me know as I don't want to invest my time learning something which is not in the exam. I have checked Oracle's website and I couldn't find it in the "Exam Topics" section whereas in the K & B book this topic exists.
Section 4: Concurrency Write code to define, instantiate, and start new threads using both java.lang.Thread and java.lang.Runnable.
Recognize the states in which a thread can exist, and identify ways in which a thread can transition from one state to another.
Given a scenario, write code that makes appropriate use of object locking to protect static or instance variables from concurrent access problems.
