Honestly, if you keep getting, say, 70+% of these tests, you are sure you can pass the test. However, keep taking the same set of tests several times might not be helpful, because even you get 100% for every test, it might only because you have worked them out for 100 times, and you already memerized the answers.
Thus, what I suggest is, try to read the materials carefully, understand the concepts, and take the tests not more than 5. In fact, what Bert and Kathy suggested for HF EJB mock is to take the mock only once after you are ready. This is the case that could reflect your real situation.
The Marcus Green tests are the tests that I found to be closest to the actual exam. I took the second test the night before my exam and didn't count the questions that would have been on the 1.2 exam and not on the 1.4 exam and got an 88% on the practice test then got a 93% on the actual exam.

javaranch rounds up 3 tests -- should be getting close to 100% on these every time -- these are easier than the actual exam
SCJP book Learnkey CD test by serry bates -- fairly close to the real exam (as are the quizzes at the end of the chapters in that book)
