The consensus seems to be that Enthuware's practice tests are quite a bit harder than the actual OCAJP 8 exam. Can any one please speak about Whizlabs? Are the Whizlab exams harder or easier than the real thing, and by how much?
Hi Jeanne, thank you so much for your insight! I also bought your and Scott’s lovely book. Would you say the practice exams that are available at the end of your book are also about as hard as the real OCAJP? Or easier, or harder?
Thank you again, Jeanne. The reason I ask is that everyone loves Enthuware, but the questions and explanations look like Jibberish to me. I’m all for harder practice tests, I just wanted to make sure Whizlabs and Sybex are sufficiently tough. At least when I use these resources, I can understand why I got a question wrong or right!
1) Questions that ask multiple concepts or have more tricks than the exam. This is the kind of hard I favor.
2) Questions that ask out of scope concepts. I recently took the AWS cert. The mock exam I used asked concepts that were out of scope and way harder than those on the exam. That wasn't helpful. It was just a distraciton.
