I would like to share my experience with 1Z0-851 exam. Today I have passed the exam and I scored 86%!!
I've been studying for 6 months, but I'm not working as a programmer so it was a little bit diffucult for me.
I use K&B and I practiced also on "OCP Practice Exams" book. The exam was consistently easier than every mocks I took. In particular:

Master Exam and Practices Exams - I scored an average of 55% (If you pass these you are very overprepared!)

ExamLab - I scored an average of 60%

CertPal - I scored an average of 75%

After every mock I have studied deeply the reasons of my errors.
I hope that this information can be useful for next exam takers.
Good luck to everybody!

I'm sorry, I think I can't tell any detail about the exam. Anyway I can tell you that questions are not so tricky, compared to Mock exams (ExamLab, CertPal, MasterExam) and that I didn't encounter Locale, Calendar, Serialization or wait¬ify questions. I instead faced Collections, Generics Question and Thread questions.

I passed the exam last week with 95%.

The difficulty is at the same level as questions from certpal.ExamLab is really hard.Try before taking the exam to read again the preparation book.I had some problems on development part.I missed 3 questions . At generics side there are some tricky questions.

P.s Take as many questions as you can , and take a one day break before taking the exam.Cheers

Sweta - you were already given tips here. You could also search either in this forum or certification results forum to see test experience / preparation done by other ranchers.
