hi friends...
finally after 3 months preparation, i took the exam today and i got 96% .
Its all credit goes to K&B books and its author Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates,because without this book it was not easy for me to even decide from where should i start preparation.definitely, its a wonder full books that is fully focused on Exam.Thank you Kathy & Bert.(i had surprised when first time i read your book,wow!!! how you guys have explain in a simple & funny way )
if i say honestly K&Bbook is sufficient to not only pass but to get a good score.
Exam much easier then even K&B practice Test which is at end of each chapter except few tricky question.
i have used several mock test like Exam Lab,WhizLabs,Enthuware and my average score was never more than 70%.
in Exam Lab my score was:-
Practice Exam-1:58%
Practice Exam-2:72%
Practice Exam-3:76%
Final Exam-62%(Fail).
In MasterExam my Average score was around 70% and
i never got more than 70% in any practice test of OCP practice Exam
but one thing i advice to all who are preparing for OCJP6 is do mock Exam as much as possible,because during the Mock test you will learn so many things that will help you during final Exam.
finally i thanks to Ankit Garg(who inspired me during begining of preparation, when i was getting less then 60% marks in mock exam),
Ikpefua Jacob-Obinyan(who gave me a wonderful idea to solve garbage collection related problems,however today 2 question that i missed one of was GC related haha ha but any way his Idea was really nice )Ash Gill,and my Roomy Harendra Readdy for his last time tips and all JavaRanchers for there Immediate reply.

* sorry if there any mistakes because English is not my First language.

thanks Donald...
Actually i have used K&B books,but if you do not have any basic knowledge of java then it could be better to start with Head First java books and then switch over K&B books and read it two or three times.
