Does anyone know in the real SCJP exam whether the question will indicate # of answers is expected, for example, choose 2 etc ...? I discover there is a 10% difference in my mock test results if the number is not shown.

The real test does tell you how many correct answers there are.

Joseph,

The real exam does indicate the number of answer options that must be selected for each question. The mock exams that are available on my web site do not indicate the number of answer options that must be selected for each question. The same exams should soon become available as a 398 page paperback book. The exam questions in the book will indicate the number of answer options that must be selected.

Unless some problem is found in the manuscript or the artwork for the cover, the book should be available around the middle of July.

Dan,

I had tried your mock exam. It is one of the most difficult ones out there. The questions are well thought. I highly recommended. By the way, your feedback yahoo email as indicated on the website doesn't work. Please check. Thanks for your reply.

Thank you for using my exam, Joseph.

The email does work. I've just been busy recently, so I wasn't doing a good job of checking the mailbox.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
