I am doing just the K&B and mock tests. I have been preparing for the exam since first week of Nov. I will take the exam on 9th Dec (this Friday). I will keep you posted on the results. I hope that should give you enough confidence.
I am scoring about 85-90% on the mock exams. I do the difficult tests just to get the concepts. I think in the real exam, the questions will be more tricky than difficult.

Niranjan,

I�ve used only K&B book, read it twice, did all the self test and mock exam. Three weeks later I pass the exam with 81%. The mock exam questions are comparable or harder than 80% of the real exam questions. When I did the exam(back in October), I had less then a year worth of real world Java coding experience. So you should be fine with what you did so far. If you want a score in the high 90s, you may need to study more and try other mock tests (that are more difficult than the real exam).
