Preparation before SCJA exam

I have used LearnKey and made all the question and the final exam as well. (Mc Graw Hill). This resulted in all PASSED.
I have made all questions of Mc Kenzie and made the final exam with only 3 mistakes of 51 questions. This resulted in all PASSED.
All the free web i could find resulted in all PASSED

Now I am starting with the Enthuware questions only test1, which I have bought as well.
The score is 33 of 51 questions, which will results in FAILED.

These questions are a lot harder than the books that I have read (Mc Graw Hill, Robert Liguori and Edward Finegan) and Mc Kenzie, and a lot cannot be found in it.

Please tell me what other material do I have to study to pass the SCJA exam.

Kind regards,

I have heard a similar sentiment before, that this particular exam simulator was of a difficulty that was a bit harder than the actual exam. Students who score well on my exams and Whizlabs, and are ready for the exam, often score a bit lower on the Enthuware product, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Don't let that scare you though. It probably means that if you're scoring 85% on my exams, and 65% or 70% on the Enthuware stuff, then you're really prepared. Don't take it to mean you're not ready. It's not bad to be overprepared, either. Just don't let it knock your confidence.

I do like the Enthuware testing engines, and if you've seen many of my other posts, I typically recommend them over the other competing test engines out there.
