I want to know how important are these for the exam and what others are in the exam too.

- String
- StringBuilder
- Collections API
- Arrays API

Also, which topics aren't part of the exam of these?

Hi Nathaniel -

The OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I exam includes java.lang.String, java.lang.StringBuilder, java.util.ArrayList and selected classes from the Date/Time API. It includes arrays too. All these are important for the exam.

This exam includes limited coverage of the Collections Framework. The OCP Java SE 8 Programmer II exam includes more coverage of the Collections Framework.

Thanks.

With much respect,
Mala

All of them are important, you will find all of the required topics in the exam description on Oracle webpage, or in the OCA study guide by Boyarsky and Selikoff.

Now to answer the relational "how important" is hard. Partly because it's due to exam questions being constantly changed. But you certainly can't go to exam if you don't know all of them by heart. My suggestion: get Enthuware mock tests and do yourself a 10 Euro test. then you'll know the knowledge gaps you need to fill.
