Are the mock exams oriented towards the earlier version of SCJP

I just gave the Marcus Green mock exam no.1(Green) for the first time.
I scored 85%.
I felt that the questions were just like those from the earlier version SCJP exam.
Although he says that the test has been made keeping the
new version of SCJP in mind.
I have 1 and a half more weeks to go for the SCJP exam.
Where do you think I stand right now in context of the real exam?
Is the difficulty level of the Marcus test and the real exam comparable.
It would be of real help to me if any of you, who have given the new SCJP and also had done the Marcus Green test before that ,would answer these questions.

Eventhough the format of the SCJP exam was revised in October 2000 ( to include lengthy, code-based questions), the objectives have not changed. So the mocks are still good. If you know the concepts and test your competence using all the free mock exams, you will be able to judge your standing better.
In the actual exam pay attention to time management. Since the questions are lengthy when compared to the mock exams, you will have to do it faster, or adopt some time-saving approaches.
Good luck,
Ajith
