Don't give up. You should have received a score report, which tells you where your weakest points are. Focus on them. What material did you use ?

I think you're already using a pretty strong book I think you should make samples to make sure you understand and remember the concepts. Have you tried any mocks ?

Pull up your sleeves and make many samples After that, if you want to boost your confidence, maybe you should try some commercial mocks like Enthuware's.

Hi, i also studied only K&B and just gave three or four mocks in which my score ranged from 50% -75%..but i cleared the SCJP 6 exam last week with 91%, so my point is your preparation level is alright. I think whats important for the exam is confidence, which can only be achieve through practice. I wrote a lot of small codes to get my concepts rights. So make sure, you practice well.

And dont worry you can crack the exam buddy..trust yourself! Best of luck
