hi all,

i want to know if the Jxam mock test is easier than other mocks. this is because i am scoring between 70-75 in all other mocks while i got more that 80 in this. also can anyone who has taken the exam recently tell how close is the Marcus green to the real exam?
Thank you
rajani

In terms of concepts being tested, Marcus' exams are pretty good. However you should understand the exam pattern has been changed recently, since October. The questions in the new exam are relatively lengthy, almost always based on some sample code unlike the many mock exams that exists out there that are partly code based. Atleast that's what people say after passing the new test.
I would recommend you to do all the mock exams without being biased whether it resembles the real exam or not. In addition to doing those tests, write a LOT of code.

I advise people that the real thing may be harder than my mock exams (but then I'm cautious). From feedback from people who have taken the real thing my exam1 and exam2 have a similar ratio of code snippets, exam3 has a smaller ratio of code snippet question.
