Guys,
help me out here...I am scoring more than 90% in javacertificate exam(people have said it is easy though) and more than 80% in marcus green exams( I have tried once in a week to see how i am doing)....I have gone through dan's mocks exam for better understanding..didn't go through all of them yet...I thought I am ready and I have tried the Jdiscuss free mock exams(4 of 'em)...gosh I am scoring only 50% in them ...I got scared...so I have postponed my exam to may6th(originally scheduled for april23)....Since I have heard rave reviews about K&B..I have ordered the book and got it today..I am excited to go through it from today...Since I have a fulltime job..I am not able to spend more than 3 hours everyday..little more in the weekend....please throw me some tips and suggestions to help me well prepared for taking the real exam...I really appreciate your help..I have to get this monkey off of my back ASAP.
Cheers,

Karthik,
You have made the right choice of buying K&B book.Try their mock exam and it is really good and also Dan's exam is supposed to be tough when compared to other exams.I have seen many mock exams simply cover topics which are not at all related to exam objectives.I heard from many people that if you can score 80+ in Dan's exam then you are quite good with ur prep.Inface am also preparing for SJCP and will be giving the exam sometime in May third week.JavaCertifcate.com mock is pretty easy so donot go with it since i donot score well in other mock exams even my score in javacertificate is 90%.More over,it all depends on how confident you are!!.All the best.
Thanks,
Ramnath

IMO: 65 - 70 on Dan's == More than 90+ on main.
Good Luck to y'll.
