Hi,
For those who have recently done the 1.4 exam.
How would you compare the level of difficulty between the real exam and the mock exam at
http://www.wbrogden.com/exams/JavaTests.html?
I've just tried the New Experimental Test C and didn't do too well.
By the way - this is an excellent mock exam.
Thanks for providing these mock exams.

Hi Danny,
I just tried the test and it was really challenging. I'm also reviewing for SCJP 1.4. I thought I was prepared since I've already finish Mughal's book but upon taking LANWrights Test I decided to postpone my test for next year.

Thanks for trying the test. Marcus and I are trying to hit approximately the same difficulty as the real exam for the mock exams to be included in the upcoming release of the revised Java Exam Cram book for the 1.4 exam. Please feel free to write me with comments about the experimental questions.
You might want to try Marcus' mock exams at www.jchq.net - many people seem to feel they are very close in difficulty to the real thing.

PS thanks to all who have pointed out errors and problems with interpretation!

Does it hold good for 1.4 also? I mean the same difficulty level?

Thanks guys.
Having done the REAL exam just a few hours ago - I have to say that some of the Mock exams are much harder - however Marcus's exams are about the right level.
Cheers.

I've forgot to add -
Do as many mock exams as possible - even the harder ones - they will put you in good stead
