Finnaly I've just finished reading the K&B Study Guide for Java 5 and re-read all two minute drill, exam watches and also completed all suggested exercises.
I also have purchased the following commercial mock exams :
WizLabs Simulator for SCJP 5 - 582 Questions Sun ePractice exams - 180 questions K&B Study Guide 5 full mock exam (On CD) K&B Study Guide 5 bonus mock exam (Downloadable) K&B Study Guide 5 bonus mock exam (On PDF Book) Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide 5th Edition - Book Questions.
In face of all great resources I have available, I'm really interested in your suggestions about which of above mock exams should I atack first.
I've heard that WhizLabs questions are tougher than real exam, but I'm really in doubt if would be better atack it first.
What would you do if you had all commercial mock exams listed above : What would be you plan of atack ?
I also am planning to write the exam on April 14th. Is the remaining time enough to eat all mock exams listed above ?
Thanks in advance.

Interesting. They are all really good mocks. I think if you start on one of them, by the time you finish the others, you might not remember what the first one had, and taking that again might still work really well.
I'd probably start with the EPractice exam then Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide 5th Edition, Then mix between the Whizlabs and the K&B exams.
don't forget the java ranch rules roundup, and the other free exams.
Start with mock exams that you can limit the scope to 10-20 questions.
70+ questions takes a lot of time, and concentration. It is hard to learn from your mistakes because of attention span. It is easier to learn and memorize what is going on when you limit your study to less than 1/2 hour.
I used whizlabs to pass my busness component developer, web service developer and J2EE architect phase 1 exam. At the time of the exams, I had never coded an EJB, or webservice. My scores were not great, but I passed.
Do not take the exam until you can consitantly pass a couple of the practice exams with an 80% or better. [ March 16, 2006: Message edited by: peter cooke ]
