I saw your unofficial results on the scores that everyone passed with, and had an idea for a different set of stats. How 'bout a list of the mock exams people took and the last scores they got on them just before taking the real test. Then list the score they got on the real test. This might help people decide if they are ready or not to take the real exam. I realize everyione is different and their practice scores don't neccesarily have to relate to their real ones but we might be surprised.
The only problem is that it might be a little hard to go back and get all of the data from the posts.
For instance it might be neat to see that everyone who scored a 80% on Marcus Green #3 got a 75% on the real thing, or that they got a 80% on an examCram mock but only a 65% on the real one. It would also give people an idea of how hard the mocks are in relation to the real thing.
Just my semi-bright idea of the day.

Hi dave ,
Its a great effort on u'r part & I am sure it will be of extreme help 2 other people . I suggest with trepiadation that if u can go through a few previous posts it will give u some more data.another alternative could be asking the bartenders to request people posting their score 2 also visit this page & submit their info(Think about it shailesh & Jane).Also if u change the title of u'r post 2 something meaningful ,ie reflecting the true nature of this page lot of ranchers would vist it. anyway here are my marks,
Marcus 1- 100
Marcus 2-94
Marcus 3- 90
exam Cram-96
JQ+ Random 94
avg Jq+ 86 too 100
Boone 98
Jtips1 86
Jtips2 93

SCJP -- 96
keep up the good work. Hope this hlps
