Wizlabs Simulator?

I'm wondering what exactly is this kit? I bought an exam simulator when I was going through one of the three certs (can't remember which). I would say the simulator was only 'okay' because, as I recall, there were quite a few errors. If you are the author of a simulator, can you reflect on process improvements at Wizlabs in the last 12 months that might suggest an increase in accuracy?

Hmm.... A kit developed by dedicated professionals based on years of feedback and research will definetly be better than the mock exams freely available on the web. No offense meant to anybody..

I agree,

I have used Whizlabs for SCJP 1.5 and I think no other mock exams was needed. Difficulty level was higher then the real exam(mostly I think, the sources in real exam where usualy shorter, so it was easier and faster to catch if something is wrong in code or if code was ok, easier to understad what is going on). But in Whizlabs I found some questions which SCJP 1.5 didn't cover. I think number of that questions was less then 5 so it's not the big problem but I wonder why someone put those questions in Whizlabs.
