Wow! I've been figuring a 20 point addition to the hfs mock exam as an indicator for the real exam (or a factor of about 1.3). Since yours was 28 points (factor of 1.45), I wonder if you invested much time and study between the mock exam and the real exam?
I took the hfs mock exam the other day. Messed-up on the timing (gave myself only two hours and rushed through some of it) but ended-up with a 54. Adding 20 put me at 74 (70 with a 1.3 factor), and I figured I could pass the 62 hurdle, but wanted to have a bit more insurance on my $150 investment. So at a weak moment, I bought the whizlabs thing (won a free one on the scbcd, so what the heck). Today I've been getting 73 or so on their tests (spending as many hours 'grading' as doing the tests).

Would you say that the enthuware mock tests are fairly close to the real exam?
