Hi all,

I am in a dilemma as to when to book my exam. I got the voucher last week, but yet to schedule the exam. I thought of taking it on tuesday(coming), but I am sure whether I should? I took all of dan's exams. First 10-15 exams i scored consistently 75-80%, in some even more. Last 5-6 exams my scores dropped a bit, 70-75%. I took KB mock i got 81% (815/1000). Today i took marcus's mock and got exact 70%. I really don't want to get low score after spending ample amount of time preparing. Also I am not sure whether there are more marcus green mock exam's OR Is it just one exam.

What u guys suggest?

Thanks for your comments

If I were you I would go for it.
The last week of my preparation I
was scoring pretty much the same
and personally I'm very pleased
with my final score.

It's a fact that Dan Chisolm's
mocks are more difficult than the
real thing.

Cheers, good luck,

Gian Franco

not needed buddy...Thwe AWT and File IO sections have been done away with in the 1.4 exam. I hope you have studied Assertions carefully though.
I agree. Here's the link:
