I dont see a FAQ out there for this but it has to be a very common question. When are you ready?

  • I'm currently scoring 100% on most of the Ranch roundup (darn bit questions aren't on the SCJP5 anyhow).
  • Throughout most of the K&B book the questions in there I got 50% or more.
  • Now i'm getting 80% or greater on most sample tests out there.
  • I know there are 2 chapters I'm weak on. I'm working on those this week.


  • But when do you know youre ready? I feel like I've got a really good grasp on everything and most questions dont seem to trip me up too much. I read a lot about how sample test questions are often more difficult than the exam itself.

    That being said... What indicators should people use to know when they are ready for the exam?

    No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better. This time, do it with this tiny ad:
