Do you think I am ready?

I have been studying for SCJP 1.5 for the past few months and have booked in my exam for Wednesday.

I have been going through the practice exams on Whizlabs getting 54%, 62%, 72%, 67% and two more exams I am planning to take. I know people are saying whizlabs is harder than the real exam but I am starting to get cold feet.

I have got 81% on Marcus Green's tiger exam.

Do you think I should go for it or reschedule my exam?

I can only tell you about my experience. I took practice exams over and over until I could eventually get 100% (or close to it) on each practice exam. Only then did I feel ready. I ended up getting a 75% on the real exam.

i think you are ready, i got 66% in whizlab final test and got 79% in the actual SCJP exam, and yes i find the exam easier than whizlab and k&b master exam.

good luck with your exam

It surely depends on the individuals. I guess you can practice a bit more so that you improvise the scores in the mock as well in the real exam.

Good luck for you exam Praveena Vemula
