How can I best gauge if I'm prepared for the SCJP exam? The exam is next week and I've been scoring in the 50 and 60% range using JQ+ with the questions more on the tough side. My latest scores on the Rules Roundup have been in the 90% range here at Java Ranch. Thanks for any insight.

I also took the Javaranch test and scored 86%. I was able to pass the exam this week. I will suggest reading each question and trying to understand each answer before moving on. Also, pay attention to detail; only a minor little thing could cause the code to not compile.
Hope this helps.

Ralph, Marcus Green�s mocks are considered to be the best predictors. My scores were only 4-5% different from what I got on Marcus tests. JQ+ is probably harder than real exam, and Rules Roundup is easier, so neither of them can adequately estimate your readiness.
