i really wanna take the scwcd before school starts for me so i was just curious on how hard is it? i have a basic understanding of everything and right now i am working on memorizing all the methods and xml tag info. i score consistently at over 70% on the javaranch practice scwcd exam do you think thats enough to pass the real thing?

No. The general rule is that you need to be getting 85% on all practice tests (I used JWebPlus - great program) before attempting the actual exam...

I disagree. I think that you should be getting at least a pass mark from taking the mocks for the first time. And then reviewing the questions in depth afterwards. I dont really see any point in measuring you ability to do the exam from additional taking of the same mocks over and over until you get 85% + . This only serves for you to learn the questions and not the principals behind them. Try only to take each exam once and learn from your mistakes so that if/when you take the same exam again you get a good mark.
