Hi All,
I am looking to take the SCJP exam in the next month. I have only studied from the K&B book and plan to solve a few mock exams over the course of the next month. Is the K&B book enough?

What are the best mock exams to be taken? Among the commercial ones, which is close to the real exam? What should my study strategy be over the next month?

Thanks for the help.

It really has to do with the person doing the studying. For me personally, I only read the K&B book, took a few mock tests, and then passed the exam -- all in a span of about a week. I thought it was ridiculously easy. Others however, can spend months (years?) studying, taking every mock exam in existence and reading every book on the market and fail repeatedly.

So --- try and make a determination for yourself as to whether you need to spend more time/money/effort to get the knowledge to pass the exam. You know yourself best, right?
