For this question, I think you might want to have a look at the thread that I posted in WhizLabs Forum... Here it is!

2- What is the level of difficulty of your software (questions) compared to the real exam?

As my experience on CCNA and SCJP, I can feel that the level of WhizLabs software are more difficult than the real exam... This is not just my feeling, but everyone who had ever used felt like me... The point is that it will make us get more score in the real exam... But one weak point is that if we don't get high score in the simulators, we don't feel confident to go for the real exam...
For question no.3 and 4, I'm not sure too... We would need to wait for the authors to come here and reply to us...
I hope my replies does helps you in considering about the WhizLabs...

What I feel is that they explain a lot in the question, especially in the fill-in-the-blank questions... If you can read all of the explanation given in each question, it would be really great... But for those, who have time constraint,the explanation would be time-wasting ones...

Thank you Ko Ko for your answers.
3- Does it also have drag/drop questions like in the real test?
Yes, it does.
4-Does it have an expiry date and what if my machine crashes ,can i download the software again without paying extra?
If you can prove that you have bought the software already (), there is no reason you would have to pay extra charges for reinstalling it. Seema might add something to this, though

Thanks Ko Ko and Val !
There is no expiry date for the simulator.If your machine crashes, you can send us the purchase details/license no and we will send you the necessary info to install the software again. If the product is updated within six months of purchase, you can download and use the new versions.
We have tried to provide exhaustive explanations to the questions in the product. For multiple choice questions, in addition to clarifying the correct choice, we also elaborate on why the other choices are incorrect.
We have also tried to provide links to useful pages on the net which can provide more information on the topics.
Thanks
Seema

As far as I used WhizLabs software in the past, I found out that fill-in-the-blank questions got more explanation than those in MCQs... Is there any reason for paying more attention to the fill-in-the-blank questions? I heard that there are very few amounts of fill-in-the-blank questions in the real exam...
I just would like to know why WhizLabs pay more attention to the fill-in-the-blank questions? I'm not sure about the new versions of the WhizLabs... But in the past, I did ever use WhizLabs softwares for my CCNA preparation... At that time, I found a lot of fill-in-the-blank questions... I'm not sure about the current version... Version 5.2?
Thanks....

So if you buy the simulator, why are you limited to upgrades after 6 months? I know this is probably standard practice for most software, but it seems like a 6 month license is pretty short.
At the same time it seems like once you make the investment in the software that you would have access to the upgrades in the future. I think a lot of software works like this, why does whizlab limit the upgrade date?

hi Dave
Our past experience tells us that, on an average, most people use the simulator only for 1-2 months after the purchase and before the exam. So we feel that 6 months is sufficient time.
Thanks

I would add some meaning of these words... One would never buy a exam simulator, unless he/she feels that he/she is ready for the exam and wanna try to test himself/herself for the readiness...
I hope that WhizLabs' software will fill in the gap for the exam candidate to be more ready for the exam, if he/she doesn't understand an area well...
Since I'm not that good in marketing stuff, I'm not that sure that 6 months upgrading is enough or not... but I agree with seema that an exam candidate will buy the product only a few months before the exam for sure...

And does anyone know about passing the JCERT Enterprise Level exam that has EJB's on it. I'm doing the IBM version of JCERT which requires 2 exams. The first (Test 484) covers general EJB's and other J2EE topics. The second is specific to Websphere. The first exam is also used by other vendors. Can't seem to locate any study guides for this exams. IBM does have a practce exam online but it is not enough. I would prefer a study guide specifically for this test.
All, thank you for your assistance.

Seema,
You do have a point. I myself would probably buy the simulator when i was pretty much prepared for the test. I look forward to using the simulator, thanks for all your time answering our questions

Umm, I'm sure that JCert cancelled their services a long time ago... You will see the following quote, if you go to www.jcert.org site...

jCert has decided to withdraw from its activities in establishing Java-centric certification standards. jCert will formally withdraw its certification program, logo and roadmap effective January 1, 2004. This site will no longer be available as of March 31, 2004.

but don't worry... If you are on your way to 484, there is IBM Certified Enterprise Developer Track, in which you need 484, 486, 287 and SCJP for you... You might be interested in that program...
Hope it might help you...
