The passing score is 59% and you scored 82% on the K&B practice exam, so you will most likely pass the real exam. If you are still unsure, then spend a little time on some mock exams.

Hi,

Read your question and wanted to give you some words of encouragment but couldn't think of any! Then browsing more of the site found this:

Good luck,

Well..
If you are not confident then go ahead and take exams.
Else if you are..then you dont need to take more exams.
You ll know when you are prepared.
Good Luck!

You must be referring to the link in my signature. My mock exam was developed for Java 1.4. If you are studying for the Java 5 exam, then parts of my mock exam will still be very helpful, but other parts might be beyond the scope on the new exam. For example, the new Java 5 exam does not cover all of the operators that were covered in the Java 1.4 exam. Of course, the new topics that have been added to the Java 5 exam are not covered in my Java 1.4 exam.

It is also important to keep in mind that my mock exam is more difficult than the real Java 1.4 exam. A person that scored above 90% on the real exam might score only about 70% on my exam. My exam was really intended to be more of a workbook for learning Java rather than a tool for predicting your actual score on the real exam.

Hi Vijay,

An 82%??? It's really good.
K&B master exam was the first mock exam that I tried- Got a mere 57%... Prepared then, and got an 87% in the actual exam.

You should be gettin a 95% plus... All the best.

Regards,
Vishwa
