Hi Ranchers!
I'm studying hard (very hard..) on the K&B5 book (yesterday I've finished chapter 7) for the SCJP exam. Great book, with a lot of answered tricky mocks
Probably I'm going to schedule the exam for friday (..panic ).
But..what about the difficulty level of the real exam? Is the real exam more or less difficult than the K&B mocks and the K&B CD Master Exam?

Regards,
Barry.

On the master exams from the K&B5 book, I scored about 80%, but got a 91% on the real exam, but I never reviewed my answers on the mock exams, which probably would have increased my score to something close to what I made on the real exam where I did spend time looking over my answers.

Hope this helps and good luck on the exam.

I have just passed the scjp 5.0, I think the real exam is very similar to the questions in K&B book for scjp 5.0

This does not sound legal
I guess Bert will react on that one.

It's not legal .
I've a great respect for Bert & Kathy and I can't send a soft copy of the book via e-mail.
Perhaps you can find used K&B books, with lower price, at amazon or other book shops.

I'm sorry.

Barry.
