I am in final preparation stage for taking exam.
I am planing to brush up AWT and IO in this last phase.
on JWhiz I did as follows:
Test 1: 51%
Test 2: 64%
still to take other tests
On Marcus Green:
Test 1: 74%
On Sun Education: 76%
Am i going in right direction and does anyone have any suggestions?
What is the Mock Exam that is most similar to real thing?

Hi Tarik,
you may want to have a look at the following link where you can find some comparisons between different mock tests...

Tarik :
When you mention Sun education test. do you mean the freebie 10 questions that Sun has on their site or do you mean the 236 web based questions that Sun provides for $75.
If you mean the first one, then it is no good as these are only 10 sample questions. You can't count on those results.
If you refer to the 236 questions from Sun, then let me tell you that those questions are relatively easier than those on the exam. The wording and the style of the questions is very similar, but the real exam is somewhat tougher.
I believe you should get at least 90% or more in that exam.
Just my $.02 worth

do you think the $75 sun test is worth the price? If I already have the Khalid book and RHE, do you think the sample tests that come with those are enough?
