Someone could please tell me if the real questions in the exam are tougher than the following mock exams or vice-versa..
( Use the following key:
+ --> tougher than the actual exam questions.
- -->Easier than the actual exam questions
= -->Same difficulty level as real ones..
)

1)Whizlab
2)Devaka
3) [DELETED]
4) [DELETED]
5)javabeat
6)K & B mock exams
7)Mock questions provided by sun for $ 70


Please specify the degree of difficulty or ease..
eg: If you think Devaka is too tough than real ones write +++
If you think Devaka is too easy than real ones write - - -


Waiting for your feedbacks..

Sorry, but discussions about some of the "mocks" on that list, are not allowed on the ranch. And hence, has been deleted...

I would not take the results that you get too seriously, because there appears to be some degree of variability in the difficulty of the real exam as well. While most people agree that the difficulty of the Quiz questions in the K&B book is harder than the real exam, someone with quite a bit of experience in Java recently posted that he was surprised to see that the actual exam was at least as tough (if not tougher) than those questions. So it also depends on how lucky you get when you take the exam.

I know about java beat questions, I felt they are tough than original exam. I took free mock exams that are listed in java ranch only, I feel mock exams are always tough than real one.

javabeat's scjp 1.5 mock exams are tougher and very close to the real exam that is the feedback we are getting. But, we don't have drag&drop questions.

What about Whizlab and Devaka..
I have been scoring pretty decent in whizlab( around 80-83 %)
but horrible in Devaka(with merely 50-55%) ..
I have just 3-4 days left for writing the exam...
Please give feedback on my score...

Though I dint appear for the exam yet, but I think you should score 90+ and must aim 100.
I have not seen anyone score well in Devaka mocks, but it teaches alot All the very best.

Let us know how did you do it, I will be appearing for it soon.
