Has anyone tried the Whizlabs practice test for Enterprise Connectivity with J2EE? I am looking into it and I am wondering if it is worth it. If anyone has tried it, how good of a resource is it?
Thanks

The whizlab exam is useless. You can only count with the questions of the IBM site.
The exam is not hard, but you need to read the following:
Mastering EJB 2ND edition,
EJB Design Patterns,
Designing Enterprise Applications
with the J2EETM Platform, Second Edition,
You can download all of them for free.

Hi,
I passed this test long time ago with 84% only with Whizlab's trial version test. It's quite helpfull but it's not really necessary.
Download the trial and read its full version tips.
For practice, I took only test from IBM site and Whiz trial version... try to score high and really understand the questions but not because you remember the answers.
Good luck..

I have heard that the exam itself can be a nightmare. I have heard that it can be extremely difficult by some and other say that it is not so difficult.
So to answer your question, I guess I am trying to focus on the difficulty of the exam and I am looking for any resources that may be useful. I will try the Whizlabs trial test to see what it is like. Any more information would be useful!
Thanks,

I bought the Whizlab 483 on Mar 7, 2003 and took the real exam on Mar 21. The Whizlab mock questions (and explanations) are outdated, or irrelevant to the real exam questions. I would suggest spending time on reading book then taking the Whizlab mock questions.
