I have used all the major software exams and without any doubt at all the exam by Sun is the best.

Hi,
I have been at this place and found a lot about tutorials, mock tests, books etc.
I liked JWhiz best from http://whizlabs.com
But if there is any software worth after it is jq as i heard from others.. and reading in the posts. Great if u can afford both.
All the best

Sun also provides a sample exam software that costs US $75 and you get to use it for 3 months from the date of purchase. There are 236 questions organized into sections based on objectives of the exam. The user interface is very similar to the real test, but you can check the answers on each question as you are looking at the question. You can also take the test completely and then have it grade you and then go back and chek the correct anwers and explanations.
I found that they explanation for which answer is correct is very ood. But explanation of why the other choices are wrong is kind of vague/incomplete.
The questions are similar to the real exam, but when I was doing the sample, I felt they were much easier than some of the freebie mocks such as Marcus Green's and Bill Brogden's.
After taking the real test, I feel the Sun samples definitely helped me.

Sun seems to be very expensive.
Here's a good list of the gratis one. Got the link from the FAQ of this forum:
http://www.javaranch.com/mock.jsp
This one is really very good. It helped me to get my 91% in SCJP

Expensive does not mean good. I am visiting this site partly because of the very good and inexpensive links I find here.
