Posting this here too, so that it can give an idea those of you in the mock exam taking stage....
This is in reply to a previous thread which has been moved to the results forum.

Bert asked me to put up scores of my mock exams...so here they are:
Firstly I did most of the mocks found at
http://www.javaranch.com/mock.jsp
1. I practiced a lot on The JavaRanch Rules Round-up Game...mostly started getting 100% toward the end.
2. Did all of Dan Chisolm's topic exams - used it more as a study guide. Did not keep track of exactly how I fared on those.
3. I also used Kathy and Berts Book's CD as a study guide. I could never complete the mock exams in there...because it had 65 questions and 1.5 hours. So I was not able to calculate exactly how well I did. But I used to do their open book exams regularly - that one tells you right away if you are correct or not..which I really liked, so I did not have to come back to the questions and rework it in my head.
4. Marcus Green's Mock Exam 1 - 93%
5. Marcus Green's Mock Exam 2 - 82%
6. Marcus Green's Mock Exam 3 - 87%
7. John Hunt's Mock Exam - 33/46 (71.7%)
8. Bill Brogden's Exam Simulation Applet - 80%
9. Bill Brogden's Hardest Questions 13/16 (81.25%)
10. MindQ Mock Exam - 38/45 (80%)
11. Sreenivasa Kumar Majji's Questions - 16/26 (61.5%)
12. Barry Boone's Mock Exam 44/48 (91.6%)
13. JDCert - 46/47 (97%)
14. Jxam - 31/36 (86%)
15. Valiveru's Mock Exam - 38/46 (82%)
16. Mughal & Rasmussen's Mock Exam Engine - 39/47 (82.9%)
17. Robert, Heller, & Ernest's Practice Questions - 10/10
18.Jamie Jaworski's Certification Exam Preparation - 89/111 (80%)
19. Naveen's JavaPrepare.com Test - 35/41 (85%)
20. TipSmart.com's Sample Questions - 22/24
Real Exam - 86%
Hope this helps.
Monisha.

What a great set of scores - no wonder you did well in the real exam!
You've done better than me: I did Dan's exams a while ago and only scored 52%, but I learnt a lot. I've just finished Marcus Green's three mock exams and scored 87%, 82% and 85%, and one of the free Sun exams (77%). But before I begin celebrating (can't do that anyway until I pass, and the exam date of 29th April is looming fast), I know that Marcus's exams are for 1.2.
Question I have is which of the other mock exams are good for testing you on the 1.4 stuff, like assertions, Collections framework, wrapper classes.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
