I've been taking the mock exam from the site -- the questions are very challenging. Is this the same level of difficulty I can expect from the real Sun exam?

At the top of the static pages (and exam2, and exam2) is a section marked

How does this compare with the real thing?

In this section I have said

"You should assume that the real thing will be harder though many people have told me that they get similar marks in the real thing to my exams. "
And I have given a link to another site

Where you can see comparisons between the scores people got on my exams and when they took the real exam (and some other mock exam resources) That other site is the home of a (rather good) simulator product called JQPlus, so they have no reason to endorse the value of my questions.
