Posting this here too, so that it can give an idea those of you in the mock exam taking stage.... This is in reply to a previous thread which has been moved to the results forum. http://www.coderanch.com/t/137321/sr/certification/Passed-Here-some-advice Bert asked me to put up scores of my mock exams...so here they are: Firstly I did most of the mocks found at http://www.javaranch.com/mock.jsp 1. I practiced a lot on The JavaRanch Rules Round-up Game...mostly started getting 100% toward the end. 2. Did all of Dan Chisolm's topic exams - used it more as a study guide. Did not keep track of exactly how I fared on those. 3. I also used Kathy and Berts Book's CD as a study guide. I could never complete the mock exams in there...because it had 65 questions and 1.5 hours. So I was not able to calculate exactly how well I did. But I used to do their open book exams regularly - that one tells you right away if you are correct or not..which I really liked, so I did not have to come back to the questions and rework it in my head. 4. Marcus Green's Mock Exam 1 - 93% 5. Marcus Green's Mock Exam 2 - 82% 6. Marcus Green's Mock Exam 3 - 87% 7. John Hunt's Mock Exam - 33/46 (71.7%) 8. Bill Brogden's Exam Simulation Applet - 80% 9. Bill Brogden's Hardest Questions 13/16 (81.25%) 10. MindQ Mock Exam - 38/45 (80%) 11. Sreenivasa Kumar Majji's Questions - 16/26 (61.5%) 12. Barry Boone's Mock Exam 44/48 (91.6%) 13. JDCert - 46/47 (97%) 14. Jxam - 31/36 (86%) 15. Valiveru's Mock Exam - 38/46 (82%) 16. Mughal & Rasmussen's Mock Exam Engine - 39/47 (82.9%) 17. Robert, Heller, & Ernest's Practice Questions - 10/10 18.Jamie Jaworski's Certification Exam Preparation - 89/111 (80%) 19. Naveen's JavaPrepare.com Test - 35/41 (85%) 20. TipSmart.com's Sample Questions - 22/24 Real Exam - 86% Hope this helps. Monisha.
What a great set of scores - no wonder you did well in the real exam! You've done better than me: I did Dan's exams a while ago and only scored 52%, but I learnt a lot. I've just finished Marcus Green's three mock exams and scored 87%, 82% and 85%, and one of the free Sun exams (77%). But before I begin celebrating (can't do that anyway until I pass, and the exam date of 29th April is looming fast), I know that Marcus's exams are for 1.2. Question I have is which of the other mock exams are good for testing you on the 1.4 stuff, like assertions, Collections framework, wrapper classes.
