Dans is one of the toughest exam. If you are doing well there then I think you do well in the real exam.

Pradeep is right - Dan's questions are tougher than what you would see on Sun's exam. But they are very thought-provoking. A 70%+ score on his exam tells that you are ready for exam. (I used to score similar to your score on his exam, and I passed scjp with 85% - 2 weeks ago).
But, if you have any doubt about your level of comfort on Threads, do more readings and experiments. From most of the exam-takers I hear that they had lot of questions on threads.
Good Luck
I agree. Here's the link:
