How much we need to score on Master exam of K&B so that we are able to clear SCJP5?

Could anybody give me any idea?

To just clear the exam you can think around 70% it will be great enough.

But you should think some bigger.

Hi Pawan,

I think that the real scjp5 exam has a 59% passing rate - does that sound right?

In any case, we do our best to cover everything you'll need to know for the exam, but no doubt there will be topics on the real exam that, while we hope we covered them in the book, didn't make it onto your final mock. So I think you should have a bit of a buffer - if you get 70% in our final mock, you'll probably pass the real thing, but it might be risky. I think if you 80% on our mock you can be much more comfortable

let us know how you do!

Bert

I have completed the book and got 70% in polymorphism like topics and
all other oops related topics, but lacking behind in generics, IO and threading
in the tests that comes at end of each chapter.
Till i have not gone through the mock provided in cd.
My query is that should i go through the book once more or should i try for mock
for checking my ability after first time book completion.

Also please let me know that topic "Enum" in chapter 1 and somewhere in
remaining chapters (==,equals and switch for enum) is given. Is it enough for exam or
i have to go deep in enum
