If you are scoring above 60% with only two weeks of preparation then I think you are doing very well. If you were consistently scoring above 70% then my confidence would be a lot higher.
I started developing the programs for my exam just to gain some practice on a few interesting topics. After the set of programs became large I decided to put them into the form of questions and publish them as a mock exam so that other people could learn from them. I also wanted to do something interesting with some recently learned XML skills. Since then the set of questions has grown to the point where it now covers all of the major topics of the real exam.
My exam questions were initially developed to serve as a study tool while learning the material covered on the exam. That's why I have organized the questions as single topic exams and comprehensive exams. Although I think that my exam does a great job of providing an opportunity to study the exam topics, I can not yet say how well it does as a tool for measuring preparedness for the real exam. I would need to get a lot of feedback from exam users before I could determine what correlation exists between scores on my exam and scores on the real exam. I frequently receive feedback where people say that my exam was very helpful but they generally don't provide data such as scores on my exam compared to scores on the real exam.
I can say for certain that nobody has ever complained that they failed the real exam after scoring well on my exam.
