Hi, I am preapring for SCJP and I am trying all the mock exams. When i tried Marcus(twice), both the times i scored 80%, in Kathy & Bert's CD also i scored 80%. But when i tried Java certificate(final ) today, i found it little hard and could score only 72%. I tried dan a month ago and did only topic wise and i did not even do so good. Now how should i proceed. I am giving the exam on the 13th(next Saturday). Should i go through Dan? I did not note down the questions I missed during my first round. Tonight I am planning to do some studying (Javacertificate).
Can anyone please let me know, how i should proceed from there? Thanks, Raman
Dan exams are recommended only during your preparation phase. and you may review them again during your final phase. But I beleive if ur going to go through dan exams at this moment, they are gonna scare you. You have the risk of scoring low/very_low inspite of your good preparation coz some of the questions are offtopic from exam objectives. Did u do JQPlus mocks? they are very good. Cheers -Suresh Thota

Hi, I did not try JQPlus, as few weeks back, here they suggested ( as I am almost at the end of preparation)there will be lot of repeats. So I did not buy that. As I have only 5 days only, I am not sure whether the above scores are ok and whether I can still go and give the exams? Thanks, Raman
I guess if you scored somewhere around 80% in K&B exam... You will be able to do better in the real exam. The real exam has fewer questions and more time. Solving atleast a couple of Dans exams will help.... but then not at the end of your preparation. If you have more than a weeks time I would suggest you do some of Dans exams because stuff like operator promotion and operator precedence is not covered in K&B and there are some questions in Dans.... and there were some in the exam. But Doing Dan's exams really helped me. Dont keep score when you answer Dans questions. Hope this helps. Sindhur.
