take another mock or two, it will give you a good idea of what sections you need more work on. Then you can go back and study those -- after that take some more mocks til you consistently score at least 80%, then you're all set to go!

The mock test from Mughal's (Addison-Wesley) book is probably one of the hardest. If you do well on that one, then most likely you are ready to go out and take the actual test. Think of that mock test as the litmus test of whether you are ready for the exam. But, then, your mileage may vary.

The passing of a test (in any subject) should be the natural byproduct of knowing that subject. So the question is: do you know Java? Can you answer some of the questions posed on forums like this? I am also studying Java and wish to pass the SCJP exam but I will do it when it feels to be the natural thing to do.
Good luck

Related to my questions I tried Mughal's mock exam and what I solved around 40% that make me wonder if I am ready or not BTW as you mentioned Mughal's mock exam is hardest one and didn�t know that until Panagiotis told me that I am trying now to solve 2000 questions
after that I will decide to do exam or not thanks all and good luck
Thanks for having some patience with me.
Yours respectfully zaghal mohd

Then I misunderstood you. I understood that you have attempted some mock exams and got less than the 61% (in fact 11 correct out of 30) that you need to pass. If that were so you would need more knowlege, practice, and good luck.
I now understand that you have done two kinds of mock exams one with 11 questions and the other with 30 questions and can now consistently get a perfect score in each of those mock exams. Is the question now whether to take the real exam or to take more mock exams?
There are many mock exams out there, some to me seem impossibly difficult and some that state that the real exam is harder than their exam. Have you done Sun's example exam questions (costs 75USD for 3 months access )? Surely they should be representative?
Best wishes
