There is a great offer on the SCDJWS whizlabs simulator in India. It costs less than 16$. I am tempted to buy it. I have never used any of their simulators. Honestly never felt the need to but I might just require one for this exam. How good is this simulator? Need your feedback.

Merci,
Don

Well, you have to decide first if you want a mock exam. If yes, 16 US$? Go get one before they run out of it. There are very few mock exams available for this exam.

hello,

I have bought 5 or 6 Whizlabs simulators. The quality of the questions varies, but is generally a little higher than the quality of other common simulators. The use is very inflexible and mouse oriented, but at least this one method to use it works well.

A severe disadvantage is the license. It is very hard, although possible and legal, to install it more often than 3 times, and it is not possible (without extreme effort) to use it later when your hardware has changed. This means that within 6 months you have to choose 3 hardware configurations on which you want to install it, and it cannot be installed on your new system later. Thus it is almost unusable to keep your knowledge up to date, which would typically be the secondary purpose. I have my "Whizlabs notebook" here now and I hope that its CPU lives longer than me so that I can still use the simulators for a long time.

The support is very good.

Kai

Just visit the site. www.whizlabs.com. It shows up right at the top. Or visit any of the exam links. In some cases, it is only 10$(scjp 5.0)
