Hi all - My voucher for the exam expires at the end of October, so I need to schedule the exam fairly soon. With that in mind, I just attempted the final mock in the Head First Servlets & JSP book and scored 46/69 (66%). That score seems a bit close - Any advice?

I've also got a copy of Charles Lyons SCWCD Study Companion, so I've got access to another mock - has there been any feedback on how scores on this one compare with the real exams yet?

Often the HFSJ will give a score about 20% lower than the real exam.

I've taken the Study Companion exam and I'm guessing that it shows a score much closer (5-10% lower perhaps?) than the real exam. I've been planning to take my upgrade for a while now but haven't gotten around to it yet.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
