Do whizlab questions are tougher than the real exam?

YES.

if you can get 80% on whizlabs, you should have no problem with the real exam.

There're too many mistakes, flows and vexed questions. Some of their answers directly contradict with Sun's specifications.

Well, I'm also using version 6 of the simulator and indeed, it contains LOTS of things that are not correct, but does that really matter? I see it more as a study friend that brings up topics and possible items which I overlooked. Even if the answer is wrong, I don't care. For me the most important thing is that it tickles me to make clear that I do not have full knowledge over certain things of which I thought I had it. And for the rest, I have trust in the real SUN exam that it will be straight forward...

On the other hand, I do not find that the price asked by whizlabs is justified. Its just TOO much for the things they are offering. Basicly I do not care about the simulator program, the only thing I care for are the questions.

I agree, and additionally the mock test is a kind of psychological preparation.

Some of the questions and/or answers I found just ridiculous.

The best way to study for part I of the exam still is reading
- Mark Cade + Simon Roberts:
"Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Technology - Study Guide" (2002)
- Paul Allen + Joseph Bambara:
"Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE - Study Guide (Exam 310-051)"
- and additional activly discussing (incl. answering!, not just asking!) in this forum.

Thomas.

Yep, I cope with that. In fact I would expand it a bit.

First, the mark cade book is very clear and to the point. It gives you a vision of what is expected from you to know. It is however way to short to give you indept knowledge of all the topics. So you need the patterns book of martin fowler to investigate each pattern more closely. You also need the book from paul allen for detailed explanation about the other topics.

After that, practise the mocks on the internet, whizlabs simulator and re-use the books (or internet) to clearify things that you forgot or did not yet knew. That should do it (I hope )
