Considering you already studied the book and practiced the test questions I would advise you to study the areas in which you didn't awnser correctly using the Oracle Database SQL Language Reference 11g Release 2: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e26088/toc.htm
Also remember that if you take the same mocks several times you may start getting high scores because you are remembering the awnsers but not because you necessarily learned them, so if you redo any mock make sure to take a break before retrying it.
I've never used the transcender study guide but from what I heard it is legit.
Oh and practice a lot, especially the areas in which you didn't do well, until you are sure you learned the concept and that you have no doubts.

Thanks for the link and the advice. Very helpful! And yes, it got to the point where I knew some of the answers before I finished reading the questions.
( Selftest Sofware is reputed to be good, Transcender a little better (they are both Kaplan Brans and overlap common material). Ucertify may be cheapter but quality may be less. And make sure you get the right site and not a phishing link pretending to be them.
.... wsa it you who i said to try the exam and see where you were really at ? .. if so sorry and better luck next time. Perhaps though it is an opportunity to revise study technique.
.... Doing your own flash cards and notes can be useful.
I always regard practice questions as precious and leave it as late as possible in study before doing questions.
(If you must peek ahead choose a chapter just before half way through the book and do end of chapter questions for that only).
But I won't even do end of chapter practice questions until I think I know the whole exam topics and have notes on all the material.
Only when I think I know it all will I do even end of chapter questions.
And I wont do them if I have read up on the topics during the day. I will wait until the next day.
And after doing end of chapter results I re-read the chapter and topics and practice. But I wont redo those questions for a few days
And only when I get good enough practice score from the chapter do I take a full practice test.
Basic principle is concentrate on learning and use the precious study ids to fill the gaps. It's a little slower getting there that way but these is more chance of a pass.
