I have read the HFJS and have also read the specs and Mikalia document 2 times and have also taken the 5 mock exams of enthuware and i have got 75,88,86,87,80 in them.I am leaving the rest of the 3 for the end.

I am still not confident of taking the exam . please advice me on what should i do .I did not get good grade in the SCJP as i got 69% even after lot of preparation,which is also at the back of my mind. please advice me on what other notes should i read or what else should i do so that i am confident for the exam

Hi Varun,

You are going to do good as your mock exam scores dictates.

Be confident, that's the secret. Say to yourself "I'm able to get it because I've worked hard".

Good luck

SCJP 5 (76%)
SCWCD 5 (86%)
SCBCD 5(70%)

I think you'll be fine with such results in Enthuware.

See if you are getting wrong answers in the same category on the mock exams, and do some more review in that category.

Keep on taking same mock exams over again until you get all of them over 90%. Chances are that the questions that you miss on the mock exam will be on the real exam.

yes. you have good score in enthuware..i scored 89% in scwcd even, i scored around 75%(average) in enthuware... so no need to worry.. and be strong in basic (which will bring you upto 80%).

All the best

Actually SCWCD has lower level of difficulty compared to SCJP.... that is, there is only theory to be remembered..... It isnt as tricky as SCJP... So be cool.... Attend it

oh, i've got some advice or so i believe.

when i showed up for the scjp test, i had travel like 4 hours during that dayt and only had a couple hours of sleep (so awake for over 22 hours). By the end of the second hour in the test, i just wanted to finish it and didn't bother to review my answers before hitting the finish button.

i did pass (51/72) but i'm sure i would have done better if i only had proper sleep

One suggestion: While taking exam concentrate on the exam and not your GF

Just go for it.
