Hi all, I just took my first Marcus green test (not my first mock test), and I scored a 69%. Now I know I'm not quite ready but, I out of the 19 I missed, 5-7 belong to IO and GridBagLayout, which is not my strong suits. So my question is, how good is this score? I know i need to study on the already mentioned topics, so no need repeating that. I'm really anxious to take the test. My mock scores from other tests from this week have been 50%, 67%, 70%, and 76%. I got 90% on the RHE test, but that seemed easy though, so I don't count it. Please, share your advice on what I should do. I know that I make the final choice and only I know when Im ready, but I would appreciate your opinion. Thanks, Travis B.
You could consider the number of questions asked on the exam on the already mentioned topics: java.awt.package - 4 java.io.package - 5 And if you search this forum you can get an idea what is asked generally about this topics.... Erik Dark
I'd say that you should try to raise your score a little bit prior to attempting the real thing... Marcus' tests are close to the real thing and 69% is really too close to the pass grade in my opinion. I'd try to get at least 75%,80% before scheduling the test. But you make the call...
