Whizlabs difficulty vs. real exam

I finished the K&B book and have been taking mock exams from the Whizlabs product. Can anyone give me an idea how the Whizlab exams compare to the real thing in terms of difficulty? I've read posts/articles where people say once you're getting 90% on mock exams go ahead and sign up for the real exam. That seems like overkill to me considering you only need 52% to pass the real exam.

Personally I think Whizlabs has more difficult questions.
The exam questions were very familiar after going through
Whizlabs twice.

Trying to score high is not overkill, the exam topics have
to be a subset of all the things you can really do with Java
(which are a lot) so try to excel in this part and if you
want take it easy with the rest
