in you opinion, what are the best (top 3-5) exams i need to study with. I have taken the first Marcus Green, the SYBEX, the RHE, and some little one's found on searches. my scores are currently floating at 50% (ugh!!!)
Also, does the SCJP2 exam let you know how many answers to pick on the multi-choice, or do they say "Choose the correct answer(s)"?
Please Help! My head is exploding. All Help is appreciated.

When I was searching for mock exams to take I found the following link on javaranch:
Maha / Javaranch / Mock Exams
I found the information on this really usefull.
As for getting 50% on the mock exams I wouldn't worry too much, use them as a benchmark, and as a tool to highlight the areas where you are weakest. Also make notes about questions that act as "gotcha's".
With the real exam the questions are in the format of "Select the two .. etc." or such. So yes they tell you how many are correct.
Right that's my tuppence worth .. yes a whole tuppence !!
As for me and what mark I got .. I'm keeping stum

The JQ+ tests are "hands down" the best mock exams available. The Sybex are "hands down" the worst. IMO
I agree. Here's the link:
