Or more generally, would Rajeswari Kannan be willing to argue the case for choosing EPractize compared to the other commercial sources of exam practice questions, including: WhizLabs, Enthuware JQ+, and Examulator TigerTamerDB?

Cheers,

While observing various exam preparation tools over the past several years, I think all the majors ones differ mainly on their approach towards preparation.

Some prefer to treat users with kids gloves and provide less but flashy and eye catching features, some prefer to be replacement for books, and some concentrate on features, material, and power to users.

At Enthuware, it has been our endeavor to provide powerful features and a vast set of questions. We believe that users are smart and well informed and they know how they want to prepare for the exam. So our objective is to provide them with the maximum flexibility and a huge database of questions, study material, and references. We have been surprised by how some of our customers are using our tool. That experience has, in turn, allowed us to incorporate new features into the tool.

We also strive to get as much feedback from users as we can. With that in mind, we have made all our questions (for SCJP, SCWCD, and SCBCD) available for free in a web based exam engine on www.jdiscuss.com This helps us weed out mistakes a lot faster.

Couple of weeks ago we made JQPlus V4 (for SCJP 1.4) completely free. In future, we would be making all the tools for the penultimate versions of the exams free.

Thanks for your answer. Last week, Bert Bates asked the forum, "how do you guys know which mocks provide the most accurate view of the real exam?" That's a good question. You said, "Mock exams questions cover each sub Exam Objectives with various possible program examples that are close to actual exam". OK, but how do you ensure that your mock exam questions are a close approximation to those in the real exam?

Speaking for ourselves, we have all taken the exam and that is our primary way of understanding the style of questions asked.
We also train candidates (classroom training) for the exam and their feedback is another source. Other sources are feedback from our users and watching out for posts by people like Kathy and Bert They are kind enough to clear the air from time to time regarding misconceptions about what is asked and what is not.

Thanks Paul,

We're happy to help clarify exam topics whenever we can, and I'd have to say that typically the JavaRanch community has a pretty darned good collective knowledge. In most cases, if a candidate asks a question on this forum, some ranchers know whether the topic is in scope. So, I guess an answer to my earlier post is that if you hang out here and ask questions you'll be able to find out what the exam is like

Thanks Paul

But... Should I bother with 1.4 mock exam if I am preparing for scjp 5.0?

No, I just mentioned it because there are still many people who are taking the older version of the exam.
