Hi there,
I have been busy preparing for SCJP. I am really caught up with a busy schedule too. I am givin SCJP on this Wednesday. Wish me luck. I want to ask you ALL a few things. Please I may seem a bit formal, but plz excuse...
1> I have been giving mocks like the ones by Marcus Green, etc. The sad part is that I haven't been scoring really well in them, silly mistakes. Plz could tell me which mock exam/exams did u all find closest to the real thing and isn't Marcus Green too simple
2> Which are the API's do you all feel are absolutely essential to know.
I hope to hearing from u all ASAP
regards
Vijay.

It depends on the type of silly mistakes. I found that I quite often made mistakes in mocks because of the environment (desk at work, at home with the kids screaming). These do not lend themselves to maximum focus. You won't have a problem with concentration on the real exam unless you get rattled.
Also, if the silly mistakes are on obscure "trick" questions in the mocks, the real exam is more straightforward. In general, I scored better on the real exam than on the mocks. Know your thread process (pay attention to the methods called), know overriding (determine overriding or shadowing) and you will do fine. Good luck.
