Hello all,

I have read the Katty & Bates SCJP 6.0 book twice, and I prepare the exam with the Whizlabs kit.
I have scored a bad score at the diagnostic exam (50%), then I have review the parts where I was low.
Then I have done the practice exams n°1 (63%) n°2 (75%) n°3 (71%) and n°4 (72%).

Are those exams considered harder than the real exam or not ?
Do you think I'm ready for pass the exam ?

Thanks for your advices

I once used Whizlab for my SCJP prep. And yes I believe Whizlab's questions are tentatively harder than the real questions. So if you consistently got over say 75% or 80% to be safe on Whizlab, then you are ready.

Try putting off whizlab a few days and do the mocks again. If you get over x% then go for the real thing. Cos if you tend to do the same question base you may tend to remember the question's answer.

I took the final exam of Whizlabs kit this afternoon and I scored 78% (I think I did not taken enought time to the second review after answering the 72 questions).

I take the real exam tomorow, so we ll see if this kit is a good training stuff !

Good luck with it Guillaume! And don't forget to share how well you do. I would be interested, since I am also going to use Whizlabs, so I want to see how it correlates with the real test.

It's ok for me ! I scored only 75%, but it's enought

I was a little bit surprised looking the score in the different sections, cause I have had only 54% in the Fundamentals part, and I usually scored high in this section. All the other was in average of 80%.

I think whizlabs is a good preparation kit to pass SCJP. Maybe use other mock exams (like Devaka's one), to score higher.

Now it's time to enjoy
