Hi Friends,

I need to give the SCJP 1.5 exam before dec 15 and have used only the K&B book to study so far. Have just started on the mock exams. I would like an opinion from the fellow ranchers as to which mock exams (for SCJP 1.5) are the closest because as i see , there are lots of variations in the difficulty levels as well as topics coverage in the various exams. This is about SCJP 1.5 mock exams only .

thanks,

Girish Malik

The one at the back of the book is pretty accurate (so is the bonus exam). You can also try the free ones on my signature too.

I hear whizlabs is good and that it also includes questions that may not appear on the exam. The bonus exam comes with the book in a CD, check it out.

Actually , doubt is stemming from the fact that K&B says scanners, matcher, pattern classes will come but to an extent. Streams as well, limited in the 1.5 exam. but wizlabs has many questions on teh topics. hence the doubt creeps it. that is actually k&b enough.

pls help understand this.
thanks,
girish

You can see this score comparison page: http://jdiscuss.com/Enthuse/jsp/ViewSCJPResults.jsp
Though it is a bit outdate, it still reflects relative toughness.
