Hi All,

I am getting from 60 to 75 % in the exam simulators available (Sun pre-assessment , enthuware and net cert).

Can any one tell me if i can enter the exam or do i need more studying?

I have given my exam yesterday, I was also getting 70 t0 80 percent at my Whizlab exams and Enthuware, but I concentrated my weak points like memmorizing ejb-jar.xml tags and transactions and exceptions like stuff for a weekm then again I took the practise tests, my score went above 90%, then I decided to give the real exam.
So my suggestion is instead of spending ($350 aus, it is a lot of money),find where you are making mistakes, study that part for 3 more days, then take the practical test, if you score above 80% I would say you may be ready.
It is just a suggestion.

I just took the actual exam this morning and got 85%.

I used enthuware as my only simulator and got 50%-60% in the 4 practice exams. I was not able to retry the exams due to time restrictions but I managed to check out my mistakes.

On the last try (final simulated exam), I got approx 65% I think.

More details on my experience here.

Hope this helps!
