I scored 28% at the Second Mock Test in K&B Book. I have the exam next Monday.

I am checking where I was wrong and review the chapters where I'm not strong.
I scored around 70% at the A test in K&B book, but this result at the second test is a blow .
I see people who score 60% in the K&B Book, score over 80% at the real exam.

How reliable is this delta of difference in terms of simplicity between the K&B tests and the real exam?

Hi Ov, you scored good in the first one! Not sure what happened in the second one? Which were the weakest areas in the 2nd test? Were you hurrying too much? Read all questions and answers carefully, there will be so many tricks and traps and patiently identify them without exceeding the time limits!
Try Devaka's Exam Lab mock tests if you have time!

All the best in advance!

I will probably postpone the exam until the end of next month and continue with tests and clarification of errors.
I screwed up the Threads and Generics and many questions that were tricky.

Dear Ove,

I am even surprised what went wrong with your second exam.

Please don't hurry. Read the question before and understand it. As Rajeev quoted, one question can have many traps.
So look for them. Don't lose heart. You will achieve.

Best Regards,

Your first score seems pretty good. I think I remember scoring lesser than your score (Not on the second exam though ).

Try out all the mock exams out there to get a feel for where your problem areas are. You will then be in a good position to judge yourself.
