I am planning to write the SCJP 5.0.
Which one is better
Whizlabs SCJP 5.0 Preparation Kit OR ePractice Certification Exam for the Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition 5.0 (WGS-PREX-J055C)

Hi
i just did my SCJP 5. Coincidentally I used both Whizlabs and Sun's e-practice mock exams. Whiz are harder than Sun's but if you are like me (not using Java at my current contract work, and needed a good brush up on 1.4 material too) I'd recommend to do both of them to help you prepare well, make you research through coding the questions, learn more, and make you more confident in the actual exam (though Whiz can make you score low while you are doing your practice)
hope this helps
regards
Rina

also Sun's e-practice does not include any drag-n-drop questions . I found drag-n-drop questions were time-consuming in the actual exam especially sometimes you have to drag and drop more than once for the same item to take effect. You will not be able to practice for drag-n-drop questions through Sun's e-practice while Whiz you can.

You can also get JQPlus V5 Alpha with 750 questions for free currently as it is in alpha version. It has many Drag and Drop questions. We believe it has the best DnD interface in the market.

Hi Rina:
you are absolutely correct about whizlabs.. I am also preparing with that. I am almost done with it and searching some more mock exams.

My experience with Sun's e-practice exams was not good. Like I purchased their Web learning course a week back but it didn't worked for me. The Sign up page was not taking my username and password, so today i am asking its refund.
Since I am going to take exam next week. I am in panick to have some more questions to practice.


Regards
Swapnil
