This post is intended to suggest all ranchers to keep away from ordering any sample papers from javabeat website. Few days back I had transferred an amount of Rs 250 to the bank account of the person "Krishna Srinivasan" who happens to be the person in charge of the JavaBeat Sales Support. After transferring the money I sent a mail to email@example.com jotting down all the details alongwith the transaction id of the online payment I had done in order to get some practice questions for SCWCD 1.5. As per their claims I was supposed to get the pdf question file within a few hours after I had made the transaction. But I did not hear anything from their side. I called at the phone number given on the website and inquired about my order and was told by the support person that I would be getting my sample question paper by afternoon of the very next day. I waited till 12'o clock and than called again at the same mobile number. But nobody even cared to answer the call. I tried calling them more than 50 times. But all efforts in vain. I even tried calling them today but result were not at all different from the previous efforts. I finally decided to warn all the ranchers to keep away from ordering any material from javabeat. The loss is concerned more of the trust rather than the money.
Hi All, I am not sure about SCWCD1.5, but i ordered SCJP1.5 questions last year. And i was happy with the content. Specially questions on "Thread" and "Generics" etc... They included many good quesions on these topics. Also , whenever i calld "Krishna", i got a good response(This is my personal experience...i dont know about anyone else) . Ofcourse,they didnot send all the questions at one go. Initially, i remember he send me few questions(on all topics), but i felt they were not enough. Then i started receiving questions on regular basis (On the topics which were introduced for the first time in SCJP1.5(Generics...) and other typical topics like type casting , arrays, hashmap, etc....and i felt these questions were good . Answers to these questions were provided with explnation, and helpd getting my basics right...).
Iam not taking anyone's side here....its just one of my experiences which i felt was a good one with java beat guys. Having said that , iam not sure about SCWCD1.5
