last 3 weeks for me to exam now.
I am wondering about the page.
Does anybody know, how close this questions are to the real exams ?
In the questions in Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates Book i get about 50-60 %. Dan Chisholm only close to 50 percent at some themes, but at my last tests were between 70 and 80%.

Yes, i know that Green�s mock-tests are the closest to the real exam, but i didn�t look at them yet, i want to keep them for the last week (or last 2 weeks) before exam.

I would like to know about JQuest and Whizlabs. How much they are close to the real exam.

I had taken tests in I got 95% in its final test and the same score happened to be for my SCJP1.4 on Nov.15th. They give good real exam type questions. But i would recommed you to go through Khalid Mughal's book for SCJP or atleast take up their exam simulator before the real exam. It is tougher than real exam but really tests your skills. But above all the small codes that you execute as you go through the chapters are the key for your exam. All the best for your exam.

Hi all
Well well, Javacertificate gives a very good exam similar to the real thing, but personally i think it's easier compared to that of Marcus Green. WhizLabs' Test is exceptionally difficult, I didnt even bother with them! MYy advice, take Javacertificate, one week before test and then Take Marcus Green 24 hrs before test, Trust me it really gives a good indicator to the real thing! For example i took Marcus Green 24hrs before the real thing and got 73% and aced the real thing with 72%! Well dont be surprised even when u see some questions on the Mock sites on the real thing! Good luck and get loads of rest!
