Hi Friends,
I'm taking SCJP2 exam on 7th June. Now I'm looking for exam revision notes, which should be precise and should cover the rules of all exam objectives. There are so many revision notes available online. I'm a little bit confused. Would you like to suggest which exam revision notes I should follow?
Second, I've taken 18 mock test so far, and my average is 76.2% I've saved a couple of hard tests (like VAL's) and all tests of Marcus Green's for last 5 days for final assessment. Would you suggest any further mock exam? or any further tip or suggestion?
Can we use calculator during exam?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Best regards,

If you pass val's exam,ur through 99%!
The exam is close to marcus green's first exam,perhaps a little bit easier than that.I would suggest that you take carl's notes,but I think there is a great page about resources on this website(Maha anna's resources) and that will tell you about some of the notes available on the net.

Have a look at:
there is a pdf document with the exam objectives.
You are not allowed to use a calculator -> they provide you with a piece of paper, you can use during the test. Afterwards you have to give it back.
With 18 mock exams, you had quite a lot of practice; my advise would be to try the difficult ones, and finally review all topics where you have most difficulties.
Good luck,
