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

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
