Welcome to CodeRanch Peter,

I hope that you find the community here knowledgeable, welcoming and sharing.

I can only speak to Enthuware. As of September 2017 when I was using Enthuware for the Java OCA 808 exam there were no mistakes, typos or wrong answers.
I'm pretty sure that you will find that more people on this site have used Enthuware then WhizLabs

As for the non English time extension, I suspect no, however I'm not 100% sure.
You could directly ask one of the exam support personnel which you can contact by going here http://pearsonvue.com/oracle/contact/.
They can be contacted by email or phone, plus they have online direct chat help.
These people should be able to answer that question and any others you have regarding the exam.

Thank you for your testimonial, Pete. We sincerely appreciate it.

I would like to mention that we are very serious about the quality of our material. We refund the customers money if they report any three mistakes (major or minor) in our content. We update the content as soon as we come across any mistake. We also log issues reported by users publicly on our forum. We have several customers who, in spite of reporting a few mistakes, did not ask for refund because they felt our product was well worth the price they paid for it or felt that the mistakes were too minor.

Reporting an issue with a question is also very easy because a unique link is shown for every question. This link takes you to a discussion on that question (if it exists) or lets you post a new query against that question.

thank you,
Paul.

Enthuware is good. Whizlabs was had some topics that I haven't seen in some of the frequently recommended books or in the exam. Enthuware questions are much harder than the exam and it's good value.

I don't remember hearing this. Searching online, I  see a Cisco exam had that.

The good news is that there isn't a ton of reading on the exam. A lot of code though!

Hi Peter,
There is the chance to ask directly to Person Vue at contact center
I myself am interested in the question, being from Italy...

This is the comunication I made with PersonVue:


Hi,
I'm going to take a test for Oracle, the 1Z0-808 exam.
Among the available exam languages I will choose English, but I'm Italian.
So I need to know if there is a time extension of the exam for people like me who are not native English speakers.

Thank you in advance.

dan



This is the answer I got this afternoon:


Hello Dan,

The Oracle Exam program does not offer the ESL time extension so this would not be an option.

Please let us know if you have further questions.

Thank you,
Accommodations Team
Pearson VUE



So the definitive anwer is NO. You got 2 hrs and a half to take the exam consisting in 70 multiple choice questions weather or not you're English mother tongue.
