I've got my exam booked for 27 March, as in just under a month.
I've read through RHE, and about to re-read it having done a mock test and getting a measly 65%.
Can I cancel my test and re-book at a later date if I feel I'm not ready?, or will I lose my money?

Hi Rowan,
I've got my test tomorrow and honestly, I felt about the same.. think the trick is just get coding loads.. grab examples from round here and from the mocks and play with them - it's amazing how things just kind of click, and when they don't - it's time to re-read that chapter..
... how often have I read the chapter to suddenly see it in a completely different light because I've got into the mind set!!?? [loads, if you needed an answer there ]

Rowan, don't try to rush into an exam if you're not ready. I would suggest that you cancel your exam date and work on getting those mock score up around the 80%+ before thinking about stepping into an exam room.
btw, Have you pin-pointed your weak areas in java, try to address them using the mock tests.

I'm slightly less stressed just from the knowledge that I can cancel and rebook at a later date!

Cheers,
Rowan
