How to study for JQ+ exams?

Hi everyone!
Today I finished JQ+ exam #3 and I was wondering how you all "approach" these exams? As far as studying beforehand (whether you do in fact study before taking it), if you do study, what and how long do you study? Do you use all the time for the exam?
I study average of 1 hour (notes, flip through charts in Mughal book) and use all the time available for the exam.
I'm very curious as to what others are doing in regards to JQ+ pre-test taking prep!

Hi Eric,
When I was preparing for the SCJP I used JQ+ as a study tool like this:
1) test one JQ+ test, it takes normally between one hour to one hour and half to finish each test
2) read the answers to each question very carefully, pay special attention to the ones I got wrong and the ones I guessed at the answer
3) go back to my Mughal book to re-read the chapters related to my weaker areas in the JQ+ test, and check with the API document and JLS for further clarifications.
