Dan's mock exam are really hard. I use to get 60-65% on them. Try to find out your weak areas. If you are aiming for 100% then make sure you are really good in answering Thread and Garbage Collector questions, because I personally feel that they are bit hard on real exam.

Rest of the objectives questions should be simple if you have got good grasp of your fundamentals. Do not try to cram the contents from Khalid Mughal in last 10 days. I feel K&B book is sufficient to get 100% score.
Keep on solving all possible mocks you can find on internet.

Good luck...

well, I don't know what book K&B is since I did SCJP a while back so I don't know how to compare that to the preparation I did.

Did you type all the code examples, compile and run them? Then did you think of things to modify in them and compile and run them? When an answer to a code-based mock exam question wasn't what you expected did you try to compile and run it? I found that really valuable to understand concepts (got 98%, I guess I should have studied Threads more! ) . Not everyone learns the same, so your mileage may vary.
