I come from a Mainframe / AS400 background, I have been studying Java 1.6 for the past couple of years.

I have completed (Sierra & Bates) Study guide, coded 90% of all the examples.

My question to all who have sucessfully passed the exam.

How do I know that I am ready to take the exam ?.

Any advice to this regard is highly appreciated.

Have you used Enthuware and ExamLab mock exams? If you have not, I would strongly recommend you to use them, the formats are very similar to the read exam, and they cover a lot of ground to get you ready for the real exam.

Devil is in the detail.

I have used enthuware and K&B so far and I would say you should get the Java OCP Java SE 6 Programmer Practice Exams book from Berts and Sierra. When you can complete those tests successfully, I would say you are ready. The book tests are the hardest ones that I've come across. Here is the amazon book url

I agree. Here's the link:
