When first begining to do the mock exams included in the Sierra/Bates books, how well did everyone do? I am getting most wrong, they are either tricky or I am blind and stupid. I hoping that most of you will tell me that you get better with practice.

I'm just starting with the practice exams and Whizlabs and am getting around 55-65%. I'm scheduled to take the test on Apr. 22 so we will see what happens... My problem is that I tend to rush through the questions.

This post is keeping me optimistic though.

Hi Higgledy,

Don't worry man !

Three months ago when I begun to study for SCJP, I also got very very very bad scores at K&B questions.

Today, I'm really confident to eat every or almost every question from K&B's book as well as questions from other mock exams.

Many guys who started from zero nowadays can even find errors in questions or mock exams created by their authors.

You'll see here a few questions existing in mock exams and books in general that gives incorrect answers and were discovered by our JavaRanch colleagues.

I personally have already found a few ones and considering that I didn't have a so solid java skill set it's always a good start.

Don't worry man ! Look ahead and keep moving on.
