Hello,

I will take the exam next week so i need a good free testing tool.
I know there's already a FAQ but i don't have time to test all the mock exams,i need a testing tool close to the real exam questions.
ExamLab is a great learning tool but it's depressing to never be able to score above 50 % i need something to reassure myself.
So from your experience,which is the best free tool to simulate the real exam ?
Not easier,not tougher,as close as possible to the real SCJP.

Thanks a lot.

Take a look at the ScjpMockTests page. It is hard to pass judgment on the best mock exam available out there. Just try them all and try to score consistently high

you are asking for a "good" and "free" tool.thats a tough combination, and i think the only tool that has these is the ExamLab.
i know you already tried it, and you got disappointed by your results, but believe me, practicing on the harder will be better, simply because even thought the real exam is easier but still its the real thing, you dunno, you might get confused and its not gonna be in your home. and remember its for 3 hours. so alot of pressure.

anyway, if you need simpler exam you can try the Whizlabs, but its not free.

i tried the other exams on the faq page, non of them is that good.

ExamLab is really tricky,it's exhausting to answer the same vicious questions again and again.
It's great to learn from my mistakes but i'm sick of seeing low scores i wanted something to evaluate my "real" chances for the exam.
Anyway thanks for the advice.

I did another mock exam and i scored 90 %,it was so easy compared to ExamLab.
I really need your feedback guys i don't think it's normal to score this high after my poor scores in ExamLab.
I need a reliable tool to test myself.
Any advice except examLab ?

Hey Tariq,

you can try this version for vista, but its still on beta

http://examlab.tk/beta/


I was able to install this one but I am unable to access it, It shuts down with an error after I enter the characters given and hit Register.

"Error occurred while accessing Windows Registry"

Do you know why I am getting this?

Have you tried installing the JET driver from the microsoft.com site? Mine gave a similar issue and that solved it.

Hey Dieter,

I went here to download it and when I click on download it's saying the page cannot be found. Did you download it from the same place?

@L K Kakani
This problem is been faced by many of the aspirants.
why not you search earlier topics or drop a private message to Devaka for this.

I am using window7 and it working fine for me as well.
