Hello all,

next week I'm doing the SCJP 6 (or OCPJP, if you want) exam. I'm starting to be quite nervous
I have been using only Sierra & Bates book (having read it twice) and some javadoc on internet. Here is my mock exam history:

MasterExam A = 63%
Examlab 1 = 47%
MasterExam B = 73%
Whizlabs 1 = 67%
Whizlabs 2 = 71%
Examlab 2 = 65%
Whizlabs 3 = 81%
Examlab 1 = 84%
Whizlabs 4 = 72%
Examlab 3 = 68%
Inquisition - John Meyer's test = 65%
Examlab Diagnostic = 79%
Examlab Final = 66%

Do you think that I will pass? I'm scared that I will have problems with sleeping the day before the exam

One cannot completely rely upon the scores in mock exam. If you are confident in the concepts- the exam shouldnt be difficult. Be calm- That will help you to recall what you have studied. Also, have a good sleep the night before so that you are fresh while giving the exam. You will have good amount of time during the exam- So you can always come back to any question you are stuck with and then take some time to think before answering any questions. Just go through the points (2Minute Drill?) given at the end of each chapter in K&B book.

All the best for your exam.

Your score on the mock exams look good to me. Try to sleep well before the exam, I think you'll do well...

That your whizlan scores are lower than examlab in some tests is surprising. You might want to see this mock exam comparison data as well.

Hello Paul. I think, that I have lower Whizlabs score because I took these tests after work in the evening and I was quite tired doing these tests (and the next day I looked at the answers). On the other hand, I took ExamLab only on weekends, not being tired from work. Maybe that is the reason, who knows...

Judging from your scores and the amount of mock tests you have taken. Assuming you have carefully reviewed concepts which you got wrong answers on the mock tests you will most likely find the actual exam to be quite easy.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
