To the ranchers, already taken SCJP.
What is the level of the exam? Is it tougher than K&B Self Test questions or is it easier?

Is it sufficient to study K&B book thoroughly to get 90%+ score?

Well, it depends on the amount of exposure you have with Java.

Generally, K&B book plus few mock tests are sufficient. I dont know much as i am still preparing for SCJP.

Easier.

I got only 60% on the self test questions, did not even had time to do the LearnKey Master exam, and then to my utter surprise an 80% score on the real exam. There is one little but though. I tend to preform a bit better when I am under stress.
