I'm just after passing the exam with score 400 (whatever this means).
The exam now tells you how many boxes you need to tick, e.g. "Given the class below, which statements are correct? (select two)" etc.
From all the mock exams I done the one that matches the actual difficulty the closest is Abdelahad Satour's: https://www.ad-satour.com/information-technology/technologie-certifications/all-what-you-need-to-know-to-pass-vmware-spring-professional-certification/#h-mocks
It's also free. Don't bother with others (the ones on certification-questions site are especially bad - outdated, with incorrect answers and broken usability on the app).
On top of this I did Dominik Cebula's course on Udemy. This one is a must IMHO. It also has mock exams which are rather on the easy side, but still good once you really get to understand the answers.
Other notes I used are on this GitHub repo: https://github.com/MrR0807/SpringCertification5.0
I didn't read any books.
Hope this helps.
