Request to MZ and Ivan, Please provide us with your valuable editions for 6th version also, it helps lot of tekkies.
I really would like to, but I fear I won't have time. Writing the study guide for SCDJWS 5 took me over a year (although I assume writing a study guide for OCPJWSD 6 won't take that long time, since there are similarities in the topics).
I am working on other books, though.
From your own experience, how do you describe the toughness of this test. I have been preparing for a longer time now, but unfortunately not so confident on the test.
Have you or anybody else attempted the Mock tests provided by Sun before attempting the main test. If yes, how do you compare both.
I attempted to write the mock tests provided by Sun (Oracle) where they provide 69 questions and the pass percentage is 50%. Though I was able to pass the test with 60%, I'm not really happy with my performance and the questions that were asked in that mock are really tough for me. Considering that the pass percentage in main test is 68%, I'm not sure how would I be performing in the main test, given that I could not score more than 60% in mock.
I'm yet to take the mock test provided by Mikalai and see where do I stand....
