well if your scoring in the mid to upper 80's in Marcus Green's mock exam's thats a start. I feel that you need three things in order to pass(and do well) on the exam: 1)read lots of sources
2) take as many mock exams as possible, and most importantly 3) You need to be comfortable coding. The exam is mostly based on interpreting coding. So you have to be a human complier. If you know your Java you will do great! Good Luck!
---Im still working on part 3

Also, this is where William Brogden's very good book comes in handy. It helped me get 98% score!

Mocks are mocks.
Sun Objectives are not!
One might want to try following:
1) try to figure out what in the mock is in the scope of Objectives
2) divide mock score according to #1
If you get 100% on out of scope and 0% within the scope, you are in trouble.
If you get 100% within the scope and 0% on out of scope, you are doing fine.
What I am trying to say is that one should read, comprehend and achieve the Sun Objectives.
