i found Dan's mock exam to be very tough ,it contains lot of Q on the topic which are not disscussed in K&B,is the real exam as tough as Dan's mock exam.

i have gone through K&B ,its Master exam and marques green's mock it good enough to go through the exam.

Dan's exam is quite difficult, and the level of difficulty should be higher than the real exam, and thus, dont worried on that.

K&B is already enough for passing SCJP.

Hi Cybel/Nicholas

Can you please give me the links for the mock exams which you had done. I am not aware of the K&B Mock exam.

The list of the mock exams given by you would be helpful to me.

But if you can do Dan's mock exam, I'm pretty sure you'll pass with high score (like I did ).

Nothing is tough until u know it.
Dan's exam is very good and it lets u know where u r missing in ur goal. There are various questions which will give u a borader knowledge about the concepts.
Questions regarding wrapper classes and collections API makes u learn the API in detail.
For eg. i would like to refer to a question which i wasnt even aware of its result:

I was amazed by the answer. i didnt know about the internal working of stringbuffer class, it made me go thru the stringbuffer code.

So, i would suggest u go thru the dan exam, may be the questions are easier in the real exam than in Dan's but it will help u gain a better understanding of various topics.
I agree. Here's the link:
