Hi all,
Does anyone know if the level of Sun's free sample tests is equivalent to the real exam?
I'm in my final staged of the studying, gone through Dan's exams...(Dan, I hope you are not that tough as your questions.. )
Anyway, I'm now looking for some tests that are approx the same diffic level as the real exam, can anyone please provide some links?
Thanks a lot.
Cheers

Yes, I do know, and yes, they definitely *are* equivalent to the real 1.4 exam (although you are only seeing a very small set).
The RHE book questions are similar in style and flavor, but I would estimate that only about 1/3 of them reflect the difficulty (trickiness) of the new exam. So to pass the real programmer's exam, you better be getting *at least* 85% of the RHE questions right. I don't believe that *any* of the books right now accurately reflect the new exam in terms of difficulty (but again, the RHE book reflects the style and nature of the questions extremely well). But the Passport book and the RHE book both have quite a few questions that *are* similar.
I have a lot that are very very close in difficulty to the real exam, but they won't be posted for at least another week.
cheers,
Kathy
good luck!
