Iam scoring 85% in Rules Roundup in javaranch.
Marcus green ---80%

I think you real score (just guess)may be range from 65% -- 80%, around 75%.
the real exam like macrus Green mock exam.
but I am confusing why you roundup grade so low, it should be almost 100%.
I use velm's note. it is great!!!, It will not take too long to study the note.

I think it's hard to tell from mock exams how well you will do in the real exam - I sat the exam twice (and passed second time!). Before my first exam I was getting 90% in some mocks and about 80-85% in Rules Roundup.
Before the second exam (one month later) my scores in mock exams were lower, but I passed the real exam.
Mock exams are useful as a rough guide - if you're finding most of the questions are not too difficult then you will probably pass the exam fine. If you find there are sections in the mocks that you struggle with (e.g. Threads, Util, etc) then you probably need to concentrate more on those areas. That might sound a bit obvious, but I knew when I took my first exam that I was bad at Threads, and the Thread questions in the exam seemed much harder than mock questions.
Hope that's helped answer your question :-)

Thanks John!
Thanks for telling me otherwise i would think that people who can get through the mock exams very well will get high score in the real exam.
I think ill have to concentrate more on Threads and interfaces as well as iam having hard time with it.
