Even i am plannin to give scjp next weekend.
If u have any mock tests remaining, keep them for
the last 2 or 3 days. I have kept 'Khalid Mughal' one.
If u have any keep em, so that u don't break the tempo.
Best of Luck.

Which edition of the Mughal book are you using? The mock exam in the first edition was much harder than the real thing and also included areas (I/O and Swing) that aren't on the 1.4 exam. A second edition has recently been published but I am not familiar with its contents.

Dan Chisholm's exams are also way harder.

If u r using Khalid Mughal's Second Edition, then let me tell u, the real exam is easier than the mock exam.
I had scored 6 % more marks in real exam than Mughal's mock exam, although I had given the mock exam one day earlier to my real exam.

You have a lot of time to brush up.

A bit of advice........prepare well the topic on Threading......

Hope this helps.....
