Todd,
I have been looking into Whizlabs, tried their demo and was not really satisfied about it.
I looked through some other products available and went finally with the full preparation package of http://www.javacertificate.com
I posted my findings of them here

Thanks Simon,
How is the package that you purchased different from the free tests ?
I noticed that you got a great score using their product - congratulations.

Their product contains a lot of questions, from easy to very hard.
They have a training mode that you can use that adjusts the level of
difficulty according to your skill level. If you are good you get hard questions, if you are weak they present you with easy questions. Good for the motivation. ;-)
I really liked their quick review questions for each objective individually.
You get also an exlusive final certification mock exam, these are all questions you have never seen before.
Answers and questions are randomly displayed.
You have a trial exam that determines your skill level and many mock exams.
Not sure exactly how many questions they have but I think (including the quick review) more as 1000 and they
all contain a detailed explanation.
The site is very dynamic, instead of displaying the question on one page without any interaction and does not come up with annoying popups or banners.
For me it was important to be able to practice anywhere on any PC (work and home).

Hello Simon,
I haven't decided yet. I was thinking that I would take it in May, but I started getting busy at work so I don't have as much study time. My motivation for completing it has fallen off a bit as well, I think it's time for a little vacation to recharge the batteries. My original motivation for completing the SCJP was to help me get from the East coast back to California and it's not looking as though thats going to happen any time soon, so the motivation is dropping.
Thanks
Todd
