Hi,
It's okay that you got 51 or 54 percent. You will improve next time,
atleast now you won't be having fear of the exam and you will be knowing,
how conceptual things are. I will suggest, allocate one month for the
study, go through K&B Book again, coding their concepts doing and practicing a lot of mock questions, that will really increase you to pass above 85%.
Hope it helps,
Ben

You will need to pass the exams on that book to have a chance at passing the real exam. Try to analyze your weak points and improve on them

Hi Jeevitesh Singh , welcome to Javaranch
first of all, I think mock exams are meant for practice, its difficult to say where you stand depending on your score.Your real standing will be decided at the actual exam

so doing it again i will secure maybe 90 percent so then wat is the use...
of repeating the same exam......


no need to repeat the same exam again, try some others available.
The only thing you need is a bit more practice.



Hope this helps

Maybe you should purchase the epractice exams from Sun itself. They turned out to be very helpful for me.

My point was not that you should repeat those exams. Try other mock exams and make sure that you pass them. You can then compare the difficulty of those exams with the one you took with the book and rate yourself
