That happened to me too. I failed in the coffee cram mock exam, then gave Marcus green's mock exam and Niko's questions and did quite well on them as well as the real exam...

feel better now.. thanks

By the way, is there any significant difference between the HFSJ edition 1 mock exam and the edition 2 mock exam?

cos i am currently using edition 1, do i have to go through the edition 2 mock exam as well?

wu , better try hfjs edition 2 mock, its more competitive than the first edition. Even i failed miserably on final mock , but now i guess after doing them and reviewing my mistakes my confidence has increased .

27 out of 69 is not good at all. you should at least pass in this exam . i had scored 88% in the HFS 1st edition mock exam and 82% in the 2nd edition mock exam. scoring well doesn't matter actually. you can score well in the real exam even when you don't pass in these exams. but you should learn the points where you are lagging.

also check errata as there are some mistakes in the 2nd edition exams.

the HFJ mock exam is tougher as it doesnt tell you how many answers to choose from.

Also, check out the HFJ errata from the O'Reilly Website
