[SORRY I POSTED THIS TO THE WRONG FORUM]
On average how many mock exams did you guys do before you felt you were ready to take the real exam?
Generally do you feel that a person would be ready if they were passing each mock exam with a fairly good score?
I'm just trying to get a feel for when I think I should go ahead and pay the $150 for the final exam. =)
Thanks!

I took about 6-8 free mock exams, including G. Marcus's and B. Brodgin's, and half of JQ+. So about 10-15 in total.

if you can get 80% for the first time in JQ+ mock exams, i think you are ready

As Rob said, the learning process is worth $150
