Here is my history of mock exams taken with scores:

Exam Lab Diagnostic Exam 6/3/2010: 30%
Exam Lab Practice Exam -1 6/7/2010: 34%
Exam Lab Practice Exam - 2 6/8/2010: 38%

Master Exam #3: 29%
Master Exam #1 6/17/2010: 50%

Enthuware JQ+ Test 1 6/1/2010: 38% Fail
Enthuware JQ+ Test 2 6/2/2010: 55% Fail
Enthuware JQ+ Test 3 6/5/2010: 65% Pass
Enthuware JQ+ Test 4 6/5/2010: 63% Pass
Enthuware JQ+ Test 5 6/8/2010: 67% Pass
Enthuware JQ+ Test 6 6/11/2010: 63% Pass
Enthuware JQ+ Test 7 6/12/2010: 53% Fail
Enthuware JQ+ Test 8 6/14/2010: 70% Pass
Enthuware JQ+ Test 9 6/15/2010: 58% Pass
Enthuware JQ+ Test 10 6/16/2010: 68% Pass

I am told that I can expect 10% higher on my real exam than my Enthuware scores, so this would
put me in the 60-80% range for the real test. Also my ExamLab scores, and my first MasterExam
scores are very low but I took these at the beginning of my Mock Tests, and I think I would do
much better now. Am I ready now to pass SCJP? I am running out of mock exams.

I don't know about enthuware, but your examlab and master exam scores a little lower than average. Generally around 50% in examlab and a passing score in Master Exam is a good indication that you'll pass the real exam with a decent score...

I don't think you are ready.

I would study more to get at least 50% on examlab, and do again the thests in Enthuware where you scored less than 65%.

Having a medium of 70% on enthuware and 58% on examlab I got 90% at scjp6.

I just most recently took the ExamLab Final exam and scored 52%. I took this as a sign
that I am ready for SCJP, and I am taking the test this coming Monday. Hopefully
all will go well.

50%+ in Examlab is good result, you will pass for sure. Dont over stress ;-) Relax a day before, read some good notes, have a good sleep. SCJP wont be some kind of horror ;-) I would say you are ready. Have your chance and post back with your result. In the worse case scenario you can retake, but I would not bother too much. Passed is passed, base to jump higher.

Thank you everyone for advice and encouragement. I just passed SCJP today safely with 75% score. I might have
done better but I only took 1 1/2 hours to finish, I just wanted it to be done at that point.

Good on you. Got SCJP under belt, move step forward. Shame though, you finished so quickly, maybe you could bump up few more points. Anyway congratulations
