Which mock exams are closest to the real exam?

I now have a lot of mock exams to choose from, and I'll be taking the exam on Tuesday.

I want to know how difficult the real exam's questions are.

Are the questions in the K&B book harder than the real exam? or are they on the same level of difficulty?

I've also solved some question from this book which are a bit less difficult than K&B.

I also have the practice exams book by K&B, does it have harder or easier questions than the study guide?

Thanks in advance.

Most of the mock exams are harder than the real exam. The questions in the K&B book are definitely harder than the real exam. Only by not telling you how many options are correct makes a mock exam much harder. You should also try Examlab, if you pass it you'll get a pretty decent score in the real exam...

Thanks, Ankit

I really needed this assurance.

I wasn't doing really well on the K&B study guide's questions, and I was getting worried about passing the exam.

Regarding Examlab, I downloaded a copy of it a long time ago, do I need to download it again?

I mean, does it have updates, or the SCJP 6 version of it is still the same?

Thanks again

I think mock exam are little tougher than real exam, but can't say surely, problaly in the real exam questions would be picked randomly
from a collection,
questions given in KnB are good, if you want you can give some mock test on following website, these have good material of Scjp,

Ankit is correct , most of the exam simulator's are harder than real exam but they teach a lot and if you pay attention to every single questions and there options you learn a lot and your confidence for exam just grows.
