Friendly asking: " Dan's Mock ...?"

Dan's Mock is almost a trade mark here from what I observe so far.
But I still have to ask this question: " Is it really necessary to practice with it?".
I scored 78% 1st time on Kathy&Bert Mock, then 88% 2nd time (a few days later), 88% on the download exam, should I take Dan's ?


go...

Mock exams are always optional. If you feel that you can pass the exam, you don't need to. Honestly, from your scores, it looks like you'll be fine on the exam. Take Dan's if you have some time and ambition, but no mock exam is necessary for passing the exam. On the other hand, taking them can only make you more prepared.

If you score around 80% on the K/B exam then you should pass the real exam without any problem--if you take the real exam soon. On the other hand, if you score well on K/B and then allow a couple weeks to pass before taking the real exam, then you should probably do a few mocks between now and then.
