These questions are suppose to be harder than the actual test, so is starting out with a 61% on the first test about normal? I've been doing the cattle drive and random assignments for quite some time now, so I have a decent knowledge of Java, but I guess I would have liked to score closer to NOT throwing away $300 bucks if I took the test now. I suppose it's a better score than I've gotten on some SCJP6 mock tests in the past, but they are even harder for the professional level...

Enthuware tests are harder than the real exam but not exceptionally harder. You can expect about 10% higher score on the real exam. Considering that, 61% is still too low because the actual exam passing score is 77%.

My suggestion would be to get back to studying from a book before moving on to the next mock exam.

Yeah, I've been reading the SCJP6 K&B book forever now. I thought it might be helpful to take the first test and know exactly what I should read up on, but of course I was also hoping I'd do better. And that 61% is not even counting the ones I got right but had no idea of the real reason it was the correct answer. So now I'll review those 90 questions and read up on my weak areas. Some people say certifications don't mean a thing to employers. But I say to them, take the friggn test yourself if you don't think it's hard or are not impressed! This is probably the hardest test I've ever taken, counting all of high school and college, and it's only at kindergarten level compared to the rest of the Oracle exams. I wish I was doing this while working as a Java developer already. It's gotta be a bit easier to recall things you mess with every day...
