Mock Exam Scores vs. Real Exam Score

I found this odd since passing the real exam today. Here are some mock exam scores that I got in the past 3 weeks leading up to today.

JavaRanch Mock Exam: 75%

WhizLabs Sample: 56%

Enthuware JWebPlus 7 Exams ($35): Mostly 72%-78%, got 81% on Test #4 and 88% on Test #6

HFSJ Mock Exam: 62% (very tough - "choose all that apply" questions)

Real Exam - 89%

The real exam had some questions on it that were literally seen on Enthuware and HFSJ mock exams. The questions were not as tricky as questions I've seen on mock exams.

I guess that taking a number of mock exams does help you on the real exam even if you aren't scoring well. Make sure you understand why you got the answer wrong (or right) on every mock exam.


SCJP 1.4 - 93%
SCWCD 1.4 - 89%
IBM FileNet 3.5 - Developer
IBM FileNet 3.5 - Administrator

Basically,

HFSJ 62%
Enthuware Test#4: 81%
Enthuware Test#5: 76%
Enthuware Test#6: 88%
Enthuware Test#7: 72%

Every test I took, I learned of more possible ways Sun could test me.

I studied very hard and wrote down notes to organize everything together. For example, I would put all my session management pages or forwarding techniques on one page.

Class diagrams are important since they test you on exactly which class a method belongs to, like where methods from ServletRequest and HttpServletRequest.

When taking the exam, I was able to use the process of elimination to do well on the multiple answer questions. I actually felt that I could have gotten a higher score had I waited another week, but I wanted to get the test out of the way.
