Im sure all of those who have JQplus and have read Khalid and Rasmussen's book, notice that some of the questions are almost the same...my question is why?...did the authors of the book help out with JQ+? or vice-versa?

So is it worth buying JQ+ if you already have Khalid's book?

Yes, most questions in Mughal are in JQ+, but
remember the software has hundreds more, and
some of Mughal's questions are strategically
rewritten! I found myself being tricked after
thinking I knew the Mughal type ones!

Lets see, if Mughal is trying to make questions that are very close to the real exam, and JQPlus is trying to make questions that are very close to the real exam, assuming all the authors have actually TAKEN the real exam, you are supprised that they might come up with stuff that is similar?
m ~ sun
j ~ sun
therefore m ~ j logic 101
Of course I have actually not READ either . . .

Can you please give a couple of qids so that I can look into it?
I know of a couple of questions like one is on File.separator, Anonymous class can be static or not. But I these questions are so standard that no matter how you phrase them they are bound to look like some question given in some other book. Also, some of the questions in the book have wrong answers (eg. the above two). so that way it is really not correct to say that they are copied. Then, we have tried to present each concept in as many ways as possible (in the form of different questions), it is possible that some or the other form occurs in some or the other book. Finally, for every java book author the main source of info is JLS. And it is our source too.
HTH,
Paul.

Hi all,
I HIGHLY recommend you get jQ+. I Have Mughal as well, but the test is excellent in letting you take a quick test on the computer and seeing the result quickly, keeping trak of your scores, leting you take a test on the same subject with variuos degrees of difficulty, besides having tons of questions.
BTW, after I save my test results I can't get the file to load, I get a msg about file not being serialized. Has anyone experienced this? Pls write me at contactme@camposworld.com if you can help.

Carlisia,
I had a major technical problem with my JQ+ software and I contacted them directly from the program and had the problem resolved the same day. They may send you a file to replace a defective one. JQ+ has great support.

Thanks a lot for your appreciation. This goes a long way in helping us improve the product.
The problem with saving the test is actually not a problem. Most (in fact, all) of the people who had this problem were actually saving the Test Result using "Save Result" option, which is just plain text file showing your marks distribution. This file, obviously, cannot be used to reload the test. To be able to load the test, you should save it using "Save Test" option. This option is right below the "Load Test" option in "Advanced Menu".
HTH,
Paul.
