Hi,
I have been getting scores of between 70% and 76% on my latest mock exams. One being a Marcus Green. But I took Val's Mock Exam, and I got a pitiful 32%! What happened? How does this exam rate to the real exam? I thought doing good on Marcus green would be about the score I get on real exam.
Please help me. Either clarify the relation between this and the real exam, or tell me how to improve! (P.S.> I'm so strapped for cash, I have no money to buy JQ+. Im relying on free exams.)
All help is appreciated,
Travis B.

My SCJP is next week but from what I've read here your Marcus Green scores are far too close to the failure mark for comfort. U should target 85% or there are abts.
Regarding Val's questions, have u seen the type of replies he can give? One might mistaken him for an automated JLS!! His questions are in general harder than real but your score is pretty low me thinks.

yeah i know my MG scores are still low. I'm not saying that I'm absolutely ready. I figured that by taking this test (Val put up a warning before the test about being ready) that I would end up with like a 50% or something. but I was just shocked when I got 32%.

Val is superb, great .. if he says something then do pay attention (at least regarding JAVA )
And regarding exam ... believe me if you have time then no need to go for JQ+ ... as there are realy plenty of free mocks available. Attempt as many mocks as you can, you will do well.
All The Best ...

well, I think I know what you mean, but we won't discuss that here
Lionel,

Very far from that actually
Travis,
I'm sorry I completely messed up your confidence. Don't worry, as I said, the test I made up is very difficult and doesn't compare with the real exam which will be much easier.
