Took the OCPJP (310-065) exam today and passed with 53/60 - 88%!

Declarations, Initialization and Scoping....100%
Flow Control...........................................90%
API Contents..........................................85%
Concurrency...........................................80%
OO Concepts..........................................70%
Collections / Generics.............................100%
Fundamentals.........................................88%

Was not allowed pen & paper but got a erasable sheet and a marker.
Real exam was alot easier than the mocks i took.

Preparation:
Started by reading the entire study guide by K&B.
I then spent 2 weeks of actual studying working through the questions in the study guide and taking mock exams. Since I've had vacation I could spend full days studying during these 2 weeks.

For mock exams I did Master Exam from K&B, ExamLab and some of the exams from the Practice Exams book from K&B. Also did most of the topic-wise exams at JavaChamp

Mock Exam Scores
ExamLab Diagnostics - 52%
ExamLab Practice Exam 1 - 41%
K&B (Practice Exams book) Practice Exam 1 - 53%
K&B (Practice Exams book) Practice Exam 2 - 61%
ExamLab Final Exam - 52%
K&B Master Exam A - 81.95% (Worked through the quizes and open/closed book a week before, so many of the questions were familiar).

I found both books from K&B to be excellent, and I found ExamLab to be a very good learning tool (though difficult!), Thanks to M.Devaka for providing this completly free!
Will be sure to make a donation!

Also many thanks to the people behind JavaRanch and the people in these forums!

I'm sorry to hear that you failed. Just get back to the studies and do some more mocks and Im sure you'll make it next time!
As I mentioned in my original post I found the real exam alot easier than all of the mocks I took. I did not find any questions on the real exam too difficult.
