I have the Complete Java 2 Certification study guide by Sybex. I like this book alot. I have never taken any mock exams or the real exam yet. I have been into java for a number of years but am pretty weak on my java skills because I took around a year without doing any java coding. Can somebody offer me a link to a realistic mock exam that will help me, or some other study materials. I need to get back to my java basics so that I can get a good grasp of the fundamentals.
Also by the time I am passing each mock exam with a good score would this be the time to go for a final exam?
I am concerned because the real exam is $150 and if you fail it can get very costly. Java certification is one of my goals. I want it so bad I can taste it!

you are at the right place.
first there are links to so many mocks at javaranch web site itself.
others www.jchq.net
and read the posts here regularly and talk and post your questions, doubts, or if you know answer them. it's nice place to learn and help others.

Frank,
check this link:
http://www.javaranch.com/maha
It contains numerous links to mock exams, as well as resources, tips and tricks and stuff...
Also keep around the ranch and participate in the discussions, that's a good way to improve yourself. Get into coding as soon as you can, and keep coding. Coding is by far the best way to learn Java.
