So the question, was merely what to expect from the rest of the exams. The diagnostic test from examlab already had 72 questions, it could cover as much as any test would (the current one from oracle has only 60). So my question was if the diagnostic from examlab is sooo much easier than the other ones in the same suite.
I've been writing in java for 12 years

AND I REALLY CANNOT SEE ANY OTHER WAY OF ONE KNOWING IF HE IS READY OR NOT THAN TRY THE MOCK EXAMS. So if you know the answer to my very specific question (i don't feel like repeating it for a 3rd time), please feel free to share it.
COME ON MAN!!! do not tell me that :
I've programming with Java on and off for about 3-4 years and developed several web applications and GUI. Most of the materials covered in K&B book are NEW or Familiar to me such as Generic, Autoboxing, Collections etc. With respect to your background I've so much to learn from you, but talking about the SCJP I've to say what really important is how much and how strong we know about the Java language not how long we're in the field. For that reason, we need to FOCUS on the Exam and try to pass it rather than counting on something else.
Alright, this isn't a challenge question, but I can answer it and correct me if I'm wrong.
Integer I = 10; //Autoboxing
Integer J =10;
I==J //true, simply literal "10" of both I & J are in the maximum range of 127.
Integer I = 1000; //Autoboxing
Integer J =1000;
I!=J // is true, simply literal "1000" of I & J are beyond the maximum range of 127.
Try this first without compilation: True or False and why ??
Here are some more (Try to answer first, compile and see how they work later):
No Sweat, I'm sure you'll PASS the Exam, just FOCUS and have a complete PREPARATION you'll do just FINE on the Exam.
I've passed the EXAM so, what I'm doing here in this forum is try to help others and strengthen my Java skills. :-)

Denis, did you pass the actual SCJP or just preparing still ?
Hey, sticks and stones baby. And maybe a wee mention of my stuff:
