First all I'd like to say hello, this is my first post on the forum due to only just registering however have read many posts on here. I also apologise if this post is not where it should be.

So I took the OCJP for SE 6 today for the second time, and failed for the second time also. First time around I got 51% back in august '15 but this time around got 48%. Without going too much into why's etc I don't seem to do too well with exams. I will point out that the reason I'm doing the SE 6 exam is I started a course with a distance learning website (homelearningcollege they were called) who actually no longer offer the course for one reason or another, and I was doing the course for 4 years or so, as I got a few extensions, anyway I've done all the 'practical' work/labs just need to pass the exam which is the part I'm struggling with. I feel confident in reading code and figuring out what's going on it's just now applying what I've learnt from the SCJP Exam Prep books by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates (the ones I got from the original course) to an 'exam setting' I guess you could say. Can any body recommend any additional study material I can use ?

I have a LearnKey Master Exam 'sim' at the moment but I've gone over it so many times that I tend to 'remember' answers rather than know them for the specific reason for example.

Any help/shove in the right direction would be appreciated as I really want to pass.

Thanks in advance,
