I just wanted to let people know that the mock exams for Sierra and Bates is much, much harder than the real exam. I took the mock exam at around 3:00PM yesterday and got a 51%. I took the test today and got a 83%.

Granted, I studied a little bit after the mock exam, but I didn't absorb the equivalent of 60% increase in the number of answers right.

So, if anyone is doing miserably on the Sierra Bates practice exam, don't worry. It's all good.

Now, the main question is, what comes next? My company gave me two vouchers for any Sun certification. I've got one left.

Hmmm...I got 69% on the first mock exam and now I am studying really hard so that I get at least 80% on the next mock exam....I will also go for one of the paid mock exams(Whizlabs or Enthuware) and when I get at least 80% on it, then I will go for the exam...
