Helo! I just took roun-up and got 35 out of 36. That is just about same that I was having before the exam. When I started to prepare to exam, some two months ago, I got constantly something around 90%. When I got first time here, half a year ago, I was between cow chip and hood ornament but occasionally even silver spur. During preparation I used RHE e-Trainer where I got results not qualifying ( no less than 50% ever, however ) but some, say two weeks before the exam, I was doing 90%. Now I was concentrating on one or two medias to test myself. I randomly took some mock and failed drastically ( hopefully no more, or I'll sue 'em ) Whatta heck? I was doing just great on roundup and e-trainer! Now what I think is that you should run yourself as many different mocks as you can get but try to analyze and validate along. Whenever in doubt, try to: 1) figure out ( and proof @see #3 ) 2) grab a book, STUDY and _comprehend_ 3) share/question your vision on some forum like this So, summa summarum, testing yourself is good thing but should be used only mean to be prepared. But yet, the score 70 does not sound very promising...

I just tested myself(couple of minutes ago ) Now I am hitting 85-88%. ( looks like some questions repeat ) I feel this roundup thing does not cover all the concepts of the test. I will be hitting the JQPlus pretty soon. FYI: I am getting 50-60% in the Khalid Mughal book though.. which is pretty bad i guess.

Yup, this is just what I was trying to say. But: even when you have memorized all the right answers on the round-up, try to concentrate and proof yourself why you are picking the right answer. I am sure that this applies to any mock set. ------------------ Antti Barck It Solutions Consultant -- NSD Oy Sun Certified Programmer for the Java™ 2 Platform
