(2) The basic reading material for this exam is found in the specifications and APIs that the exam is based on - Java Technology for the Wireless Industry 1.0 CLDC 1.0 CLDC 1.1 MIDP 2.0 Wireless Messaging API 1.1 MMAPI 1.1
(3) This might be obvious but I think the answer is J2ME programming jobs. :roll:
(4) For developing software you should download a J2ME emulator ("Wireless Toolkit" in Sun's parlance). You can find what you need, and other things J2ME, here
is a good place to start.
(7) SCMAD isn't as popular as other Java exams, I guess. If mobile development does indeed "grow tremendously in future" then I would expect the popularity of this forum to grow as well
For my thoughts on preparing for the exam check out this thread
