Hardest mock exams

What would be the hardest most up-to-date mock exams to prepare for the OCJP6?

I am pretty much done with studying part and now want to concentrate on mock exams. I figured if i can clear the hardest ones out there (harder than the exam maybe?) then i should be in a good position for the test itself..

I dont mind paying for them, so commercial mocks is fine as well...
Thanks again for helping!

p.s. I have read the SCJP FAQ here on JavaRanch but wanted an opinion form those fellows that have passed...

Well I'm not sure if you've checked out the ScjpMockTests page or not, but one of the toughest mock tests IMO is ExamLab which is free...

The hardest exams I have seen are the OCP Java SE 6 Programmer Practice Exams: http://www.amazon.com/Programmer-Practice-Exams-310-065-Certification/dp/0072260882/ref=pd_sim_b_1

If you ace these on your first try, you can pretty much guarantee yourself the SCJP!

Really? Nice to know since this is the book i am just about to start reading...I purchased it but was not sure whether it was comparable in toughness with the actual exam. Now i know that it might be even harder. Thanks a lot!

Yes. I agree. Bert & Kathy's Practice Exams book is excellent.

Since you are not averse to commercial mocks, Enthuware's JQ+ V6 contains "Most Missed Test" feature, which gives you a test on the questions that were answered incorrectly the most. This is probably the hardest you can get

HTH,

I will take a look at this one as well...I have about a month and a half to do mock exams before my OCJP6 test, so hopefully this is enough time to do practise...
Thanks!

This chapter wise tests is good. I have done 2 till now but I feel time is too short..
If you have questions with code, it is difficult to finish 20 questions in 20 minutes.
