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.
Bert asked me to put up scores of my mock here they are:
Firstly I did most of the mocks found at
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 Test - 35/41 (85%)
20.'s Sample Questions - 22/24
Real Exam - 86%
Hope this helps.

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.

SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.3, SCBCD 1.3
I agree. Here's the link:
