Hi everyone.
I've done all exercises from K&B SCJP 6, and got these scores as follows:

chapter 1 - 88,89%
chapter 2 - 100,00%
chapter 3 - 84,62%
chapter 4 - 70,00%
chapter 5 - 81,25%
chapter 6 - 86,67%
chapter 7 - 62,50% <- bad [collections + generics]
chapter 8 - 91,67%
chapter 9 - 58,52% <- bad [threads]
chapter 10 - 58,33% <- bad [development]
Average - 78,25%

I read the book twice, and I've already done these exercises previously.
It seems that it's very difficulty to improve these scores after I go to another mock exams, study my notes and come back to these exercises.
I'd like to know if I need to prepare more instead to practice more mock exams?
What do you recommend?

Thanks.

Collections / generics / threads are indeed the most troublesome. I would recommend trying more mock exams and filling in the gaps that lead to gotchas. Check out ScjpMockTests

[EDIT]

Also, your score on the other sections are impressive

Just read more on the chapters where you got less than 70%

After all, you will want to score 95+ in real exam, right?

I want to get a good score.
I don't want only to pass. I really want to pass and get a good understand about the java language.
