I went through 4 rounds so far,and I got 39 questions out of 48 (81%)


I want to know if that's a good score,and also if this game covers all objectives of the SCJP,because I don't think it's that comprehensive


thanks in advance

round up game is not meant for preparation of SCJP
it just tests the knowledge about the java language
I think you have read the rating

if you score above 90% then they give that you are able to STUDY FOR SCJP exam
exam questions are a lot tougher than the roundup game

SCJP 6 [86%], OCPWCD [84%], OCEJPAD [83%]

another question,which mock exam resembles exam questions the most?

I'm not looking for something harder than the exam,I want to know the form of the questions

I am familiar with this list,some of these are outdated btw,but some of them are actually harder than the exam itself,like examlab

I preffer harder quizes so examlab was an exelent choice for me

imo thisone is about as hard as SCJP, but keep in mind that it tests you for some of the topics that are no longer on the SCJP.

well trying for difficult questions boosts your confidence
and in examlab if you are able to solve all questions in single sitting and manage to get 50% marks
then you will surely surely surely surely surely pass the exam (but review those questions which are wrong and study them neatly)

I had scored 50% 50% and 43% in the examlab first three tests
then I reviewed all the questions in two days and then took the final test and then I scored 61%

you can consider for sure at least 20 % higher than whatever you get in the examlab
so I recommend you don't settle for the toughness of the exam questions
try for the harder so that you will feel much confident while solving the questions

I'll give examlab a try once I'm done with the exam guide,but for now,I want something that is moderately tough

thanks 4 the advice anyway
