Hello All,

I am going to have my Java 7 Programmer certification, and I want to purchase the best mock exam that guarantees passing the exam.
I've been told that [DELETED] is the best, but my manager suggested enthu-ware which I can't find enough reviews about it online.

So please help me to determine what is the best one to choose.

Many thanks

Welcome to the ranch !!

Let's move this topic to the certification forums -- as this question is not really about servlets.

I don't have a comparison of which is best, but since one option is a site that is known for providing cheating materials, it is probably better to not take that choice.... and BTW, I had to delete the mention of the site from your post (for the same reason). Sorry.

As one of the options has been excised, I can only tell you about my experience with Enthuware.

I first used it to prepare for the OCA Java SE7 exam and passed the exam first time with 91%.

I'm currently using it to prepare for OCP JP 7, along with the Ganesh & Sharma book, and am planning to take the exam in a couple of weeks time.

I've learned a load of stuff from Enthuware which isn't obvious from the book. Each question is linked to the website forum, so you can ask for clarification if any of the answers or explanations aren't clear to you. I've never had to wait longer than a couple of hours to have any of my questions answered.

My only complaint is that there don't appear to be any questions on the synchronizer classes(Semaphore, Phaser, CountDownLatch, Exchanger and CyclicBarrier), which the G&S book dedicates a fair chunk of the Concurrency chapter to.

That aside, I can't recommend Enthuware highly enough. It's definitely value for money.

Thank you for your kind words regarding our product.

Semaphore, Phaser, CountDownLatch, Exchanger and CyclicBarrier are not on the exam and we haven't seen anyone getting any question on them either. That is why there are no questions on these in our question bank.

-Paul.

I did the Java 6 certificate (95%) and I am currently preparing for the Java 7 upgrade. I have already read the concurrency bit for the upgrade (Oracle tutorial + other sources) and I have never even heard about Semaphore, Phaser, CountDownLatch, Exchanger or CyclicBarrier
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
