Hi,
I just took the SCJP exam today. I've mostly been practising using whizlabs mock exams, so I thought I'd share my impressions on it.
I think the whizlabs exams are pretty close to the real one, a bit harder (as has been pointed out before), also some of the questions in whizlabs aren't part of the scjp objectives.
I did the 5 mock exams some days prior to the real on and scored as follows;
59%, 72%, 66%, 71% and 71%
Not super high percentages as you can see, but on the real exam I managed to get 90%, so I'm happy

Thanks for sharing. I've been getting ok'ish scores in whizlabs and was wondering how close they are to the real thing. I will be putting some more effort in next few weeks to up my scores in the mocks!!!

Great score by the way and congratulations.
