Need opinions... Ive read the Sierra and Bates book about three times, filled three A4 notepads with java notes, and used the Whizlabs software for a a couple of weeks. Has anybody used this software before and if I get around 50% to 60% do you think i'm ready for the SCJP5 exam? Or do I really need to get at least 70% in mocks to at least marginally pass the exam?

Thanks in advance!

I think that you probably should work some more before you sit for the exam. I haven't used Whizlabs' software for SCJP (I was already certified before it was out), but my impression based on their exams for other certifications is that it does equate favorably with my performance on the real thing.

If I might make a suggestion to help yourself - look at the sections where you're having trouble, sit down and write some code that uses that functionality. Run it through the compiler, see what comes out, and learn by doing - you might find that helps.

Good luck!
