I find the K&B questions harder than the real exam.
usually most score 20% higher in SCJP, than K&B final exam.

heres how i find the difficulty of questions that i've taken.
K&B Questions > whizlabs > SCJP.

thanks.

Hi hariharan today I attended the SCJP 5 exam ..I did not encounter any fill in the blank questions, but there were around 10 drag and drop questions.

yes, just like Thirumalai said...

There are no fill-in-the-blanks questions in SCJP5, I believe you'll get more or less 10 drag-n-drop questions.

good luck with your exam

what sort??

are they mainly related with api stuff or they are just fill-in-code type?

hi Sumit,
you may get a combination of both, it really depends on how random the questions are chosen. I dont really know how the randomization works, but all will get equal questions by difficulty/subject.

We hope that the mock questions are a little bit harder than the real exam, but I wouldn't recommend that you add 20 points! In other words you should be closer to the official pass rate before you feel comfortable.
