I just need to find out if my prepartion is good enough for the REAL exam, I've taken Dan Chisholm's exams and have been scoring on an average about 75%
On Marcus Green's exam i've been averaging around 85% and on other exams i've been getting consistently about the BIG question is.. is this prepartion good enough to get a decent score??

Hi Sudhakar

Your preparation seems to look good. Dans exams are tough and if you scored about 75 on them, than you should be fine.

Just don't get TOO confident with 75%. I failed the exam with mock scores like that. I think I got a 49. I totally blew garbage collection. I was also expecting most of the exact questions that I took in mock exams to be in the real exam. bad idea
