Hello David,

it's good, that you visit this forum, so we can ask questions.

But I have rather a feedback. A bad one, if you don't mind.

I have tested the free 1Z0-808 exam. It is free, but I still want my money back (using your 100% money back guarantee). I have made screenshots on my way through, but we will not need them, I think.

What I don't like about your mock exams (no precedence, just to write down, until I still remember):
1. countdown doesn't end after I submitted the test
2. don't like the look and feel of the exam website
--- i.e. why did you pack the answers into textarea-fields?
3. text copy is not allowed
--- your website informs us about 100% working and tested code, but I can't even try it out in my IDE
4. all answers are multiple choice answers, even if there should be only one answer
--- the questions don't tell you, how much answers you should give
--- even worse, they confuse you, because they are in... (see the next point)
5. a bad English. I have a bad English too, but you have a website and selling your software!
--- answers like "the output could be" is not the way an answer should sound. If the code doesn't compile, I can imagine a correct output after I manage to correct the compiler error
--- a question, asking "What are true?" has only one correct answer
--- "this method has marked with... access modifier"
6. in the OCA free test, having only 25 questions, we have topics, that are not in the OCA but in the OCP exam
--- Like custom functional interfaces, Instant, Duration

I don't understand, why do you sell this software for such high prices if it is raw? It costs more, than Enthuware mock exams. And Enthuware has proven it's usability and usefulness (see the branch "certification results" on JavaRanch)
And please don't say, that it is only a free exam like this. The free tests are the face of your software, it is your advertising. And if the advertising is bad, then what should we expect from the real mock exams for 39.99 USD?

Kind regards
Viktor

I haven't looked at the mock exams as Viktor has but I enjoy proof-reading, so I volunteer to do that, especially if I could pick up a free copy of the ORACLE 1Z0-808 WEB SIMULATOR.  PM me.  Thank you.

I have just worked thru the first test.
After the test time has run out, all of my answers and marked questions have disappeared.

So how am I supposed to learn anything?

This test simulator is completely useless, I have wasted €20 and three hours of my time for nothing.

It is a shame that such a product is being promoted on this forum.

Viktor: Thank you for posting the negative feedback. We did try the free version prior to the promo to see it looked reasonable. We didn't spend that long on it though so didn't hit the timeout.

Hi All, I have purchased the 1Z0-809 web simulator after the promotional program in JavaRanch. The simulator looks decent but the support is not good enough. I have reported few issues related to the answers with screenshot and received no response. Was getting response while i was making order enquiry but after the purchase there is no response whatsoever. Has someone faced similar issue? Is someone from javamocks.com listening to this? Did someone already evaluated the success rate of these questions already? Please respond.

Regards,
Gandhi

This post was originally created during the promotion phase. And David hasn't responded in this thread. For me it is a sign of ignorance. I would never purchase this software.
I have also won a free copy of the software during the promotion here. But since then I haven't received anything from javamocks.com.
They have a money back guarantee. You could try to make use of it, if they will reply at all. If not... don't know, if there is an entity, where one could complain.

I can only advice to purchase a licence from EnthuWare , because I'm sure about their support and quality. Tested myself and by many users here on the Ranch.

@Viktor, Thanks for your response. Unfortunately, i have already made the purchase. You have not got login credentials for your free copy? Moneyback guarantee can be initiated only if they respond i guess. So basically i m helpless now. Feel its high time for David to respond before the negative word of mouth spreads out. If you know any other way to get response from them, please let me know.

Regards,
Gandhi

Couldn't you contact your credit card company (or Paypal if that's how it was paid) and initiate a chargeback refund with them?  Just a suggestion if no one is responding to refund requests.

Hi Scott,

Thanks for the response. May be that would be the last option i have to try. But being promoted in Javaranch i m not sure how such things happens. I thought it should be genuine product sine its promoted here.

Regards,
Gandhi

Update: Have received a promoted free copy of the software on 15. Apr.

They provide an e-mail with instructions to login on their site, using your e-mail address and the password, sent in the e-mail. On the login page you have a choice between two products - OCA and OCP. I have chosen OCP.
So I have access now. But not really want to test the software. It takes time and I haven't even finished the Study Guide yet, so It has to wait until I took the exam. For my exam preparation I gonna use EnthuWare. I can't rely on javamockexams in such important things.
