Here are the latest stats from Pauls JQ+ site at:
These are the average scores of all the results posted:
JQ+ 75%
Marcus Green 84%
Rules Roundup 93%
JTips 48%
Actual SCJP 80%
It looks like both JQ+ and Marcus's are pretty close to the actual difficulty level of the test (both within 5%). JTips only had 4 scores recorded so I dont think the percentage there is too accurate yet.
Keep in mind these are in not in any way scientific they are just to give you an idea of where you stand in relation to others that have done the same things as you have. The tests are all very different in their implementation and in there methods of testing so that also accounts for some of the differences.
Make of this what you will, but have fun.
Hope this helps someone, even if it's just a little guidance.
