Hi ,
I'm preparing for my SCBCD.I'm using Kathy's and Bates's Head First book for it....Do you think it is really necessary to buy mock exams from whizlabs....Or rather is it really worth all the money???

I think that people who have used the product will better answer that question.
Maybe you will win this week's promotion and you won't have to buy the product Who knows...

I think that they really help. I had used whizlabs' simulator for SCWCD and found that mock exams made a huge difference.

Thanks,
Vasu

I think that the simulator is probably more representative of the actual environment (time, setup, etc.) that you will be taking the test in. But i also think that if you have taken any sun exams before that you will probably be fine without a simulator. I guess the simulator will just guarantee you a better score

Yes it is good to have,because it will make you more confident, it will improve your timing and you will be more useto of the exam.
and I think all these things are very important to have before the exam

But, if you are seasoned veteran at the testing center, i think you could pass without it.
It's definitely going to help you, but its not absolutely necessary. imho
