Enthuware mock exams are considered to be a little bit more difficult than the actual exam.

If you regularly/consistently score 80% or more on Enthuware's mock exams, you'll definitely do well and almost certainly will pass the OCAJP exam. So I would say you are not completely ready. There's still room for improvement. But this is just my opinion and this "80% rule" is also my own "rule", based on the many experiences posted here by other ranchers.
Until you take the exam, you should (of course) just keep studying and repeating the things you learnt. Focus a little bit more on your weaker objectives/points.

Doing other mock exams is one way to improve your knowledge and level. Another one is studying and repeating the things you learnt from a study guide using some kind of overview and/or flash cards and/or your own notes. A 3rd alternative is to write (and experiment with) java code snippets using your favourite text editor and javac/java. These different suggestions are complementary with each other. Combining all 3 of them will ensure the best results.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel
