Hi all,
can anyone please comment on the only two commercial SCDJWS exam simulators I can currently find? Also, if you know of other exam simulators, I'd be grateful for a list.
Regards,

Whizlabs, $89.95

Ok,
I noticed another commercial exam simulator further down in the posts. I should have been more careful.

Costs $24.

I remember worrying a lot about the SCWCD exam 2 years ago. I bought two exam simulators, one for about $69.95 and one for $19.95. I did both and found the professional one was more 'polished', you could track your progress, add comments to each question and generally approach the whole thing like a mini s/w project. I found the cheaper one was very basic, just a series of simple screens with questions and then the answers were given after you finished. Honestly, both were about as useful for passing the exam. So I have my doubts as to the value of the more expensive simulators, now that I am preparing for the SCDJWS exam.
Thoughts?

Also,
to be-labor the point, what about this?

The 'official' practice exam from Sun, $75

Has anybody actually tried it?

Please refer to
CertifyFirst SCDJWS Mock Exam
I.M.H.O. preparitions for passing the exam
IMO mock exams should only be used to assess your relative preparedness for taking the exam.
They should not be used to predict your score or as a learning tool.
The Whizlabs simulator works as a "preparedness assessment tool".
