How tough is OCAJP

I know my question is pretty vague.

I have gone through mala guptas book, few relevant chapters from k&b, head first java and liguoui mock exams.

I am also currently evaluating myself with enthuware.

I am consistently scoring 70-75% in the enthuware's standard tests and I am getting dejected.

Is the OCAJP tougher or the same or lil easier than enthuware ?

The Real Exam is easier than the standard tests in Enthuware. Your average score is quite good, I think I'm only averaging around 70% in enthuware's standard tests(passing only 2 standard tests) but I passed the real exam. Kudos to enthuware and Gupta's book.

From my experience, Enthuware tests are harder than real-life OCAJP and that makes sense. But don't get into the trap of thinking "why learn more?". You never know what you'll get on the exam. Even EW authors have said that some test-takers had questions on topics not even mentioned in exam objectives.

It's tough, but if you take the enthuware practice exams, it helps a TON!

There's no such thing as a failure who keeps trying. Coasting to the bottom is the only disgrace
