I have been practising mock exams of marcus greene, dan's exam and K&B mock. I was getting 70-80% on an average. Today gave Khalid Mughal mock and scored only 45%!!! I was planning on giving my exam on 14th March. Should I still give my exam that day, or should I prepare more than the 6 days I have on hand??

I believe that the Mughal & Rasmussen mock exam is a little harder than the real exam, but it would be nice if you were scoring a near passing grade on that exam coming into the exam.
Whether you want to put off the exam is up to you, but I'd say that you might want to invest some serious effort over the next week to make sure you're ready for the exam.

SCJP Tipline, etc.

I am almost in teh same state. I got 80% in Marcus and 80% on K & B too. But i tried Java Certificate , i got only 72%. Today I went ahead and bought jQPlus and am getting low scores too but i feel it is better because they guarantee a pass(after 10 days). I am doing two in a day so that i can pass. After all, pass is a pass! JQPlus is 25$ and it is worth the money i think.
I agree. Here's the link:
