I am preparing for SCJP for 3 months straight. i have read K&B book and done a few mock exams from different sites .

Couple of days back i bought the whizlab kit and taken the daignostic exam to see how much i knew i failed miserably . Some silly mistakes and some due knowledge . The next time i gave i gat 95% in that same exam . But that did help my confidence since they where the same questions .

So i want to know how should i prepare for the exam and how should i do the mock exam from whizlab , because i dont do well in the first take but do farely well in the second take.

I want to do well in the first take . Please tell me how should i use whizlab mock exam .

Please anyone......

HI varun,

I was also having same problem when preparing for the exam.For the first time when i wrote any mock exam i was failing.I was really disapointed at the same time the second time i got good scores as you got.The best way to learn through mock exams is just check the questions where you are doing mistakes.There will be lots of different exams in Whizlabs.Try to analyze common mistakes you are doing in all the exams instead of just remembering the answer.And i am sure the real exam wont be tuff as of these mock exams.check for other mock exam softwares which you download from some of the sites like


when you fail a exam you can get the scores in individual sections and just revise that section once again.

Ex:if you fail to get what is a correct overriden menthod just go and read method overridden rules you can find those two minute drills in Kathie siera book they are really helpful before going to the exam.It compraises all the fundamental rules.

Go a head
good luck for your exam
