Are the SCMAD simulator's questions close to the real exam in terms of format, topics, tone and difficulty?

For people who have tried this product and taken the exams, are their exam results close to the simulator's results?

Btw, how come all the whizlab products so expensive? I think the "Unconditional Test Pass Guarantee" may not be good enough to convince people to purchase the products. IMO, it's more difficult to fail than to score well.

There are three difficulty levels in the SCMAD Exam Simulator: expert, intermediate and beginner. You can also customize the questions as you like to your custom exam. The format is the same as the real exam except for the fill-in-the-blank questions. I feel that those questions are more difficult to beat than others like MCQs, DnDs... But DnDs are difiicult as well...

The topics in the simulator are exactly fitted to the exam objectives. If it is too much to say 100%, I say it is 99.99999% fitted to the exam objectives...

For people who have tried this product and taken the exams, are their exam results close to the simulator's results?

I'm not sure who have tried this product and took the officially-released exam... As far as I see in this forum and exam result forum, I don't see anyone who passed the officially-released exam, after the beta result was out.

Btw, how come all the whizlab products so expensive? I think the "Unconditional Test Pass Guarantee" may not be good enough to convince people to purchase the products. IMO, it's more difficult to fail than to score well.

For this question, I'd better left to the people at WhizLabs Marketing Department to reply...

Hi Joyce,

While Ko Ko has answered most of your questions, I will try to add to those answers...

We (Siva and I) have tried our best to keep the questions as close in all terms you have mentioned to that of the real exam. This is based on our experience with the beta exam, which both of us participated in (and passed )

As no books were present during the beta phase (not even now), we have taken most of the questions from the specifications themselves and maybe a few from books and articles that we have read.


For people who have tried this product and taken the exams, are their exam results close to the simulator's results?


We really hope so! Again, we kept in our mind the actual questions (not verbatim, of course) while preparing them and hope that they more or less reflect the real exam. In my opinion, the simulator's questions might probably be a bit tougher (not too much) than the actual exam. We have added some bonus questions (questions that are really easy) much like the real exam.

But as Ko Ko pointed out, we haven't heard from exam takers yet. I guess they are all seriously preparing for the exam



Btw, how come all the whizlab products so expensive? I think the "Unconditional Test Pass Guarantee" may not be good enough to convince people to purchase the products. IMO, it's more difficult to fail than to score well.


For obvious reasons (as Ko Ko mentioned), I leave this part for the WhizLabs marketing dept.

Best wishes for your preparation.
