I read the K&B study guide book twice and did all the work in it. I would usually get at least half of the exercise questions right on the first try. Additionally, I barely passed Master Exam A on the first try.

The new OCP Java SE 6 Programmer Practice Exams book is hardcore. I am not a fan of retaking exams, but I guess that is what you have to do with this book. The trick questions are brutal unless you have a laser like eye.

Has anyone else used this book? What has been your experience?

Yes, though the actual exam will have somewhat easy questions (with atleast info about number of correct answers to choose).

The questions at the end of each chapter in the K&B book are somewhat tricky and they do check your grasp on the subject.

I did the first 2 exams in the practice exams book. I got
Practice Exam 1 - 53%
Practice Exam 2 - 61%

I then studied 2-3 more days and passed the real exam with 88%.
