Cameron also deserves to be thanked not just me . And also don't loose your confidence in the exam. If you've cleared ExamLab, then you don't need to worry...

Do not compare any mocks with the exam. Depends on the questions and of course the knowledge that you have.

You can normally access your performance on the basis of Master Exam and Examlab. I've not tried scjptest.com so I can't say...

You can do free test which is on Sun's site. I attached the link a week or more ago.

Hi ranchers...

I was about to write a similar-to-this post, so I preferred to do it here...I just wrote the ExamLab Devaka's Diagnostic Exam and I just passed (I got 50 out of 72). Later I will do the other 3 ExamLab exams and I don't know how confident I should be with this results. I have already passed both exams from K&B MasterExam and I was scored a little higher...I have heard a lot of good things about ExamLab and the exams from K&B. What do you think? BTW, I will write the exam next Monday...

Regards
