Hi guys, like we all know, according to a lot of people, there aren't a lot of good mock exams for Spring 5. However, a mock exam is definitely needed before going to a real exam because even though Spring has created the study guide for us, it still covers a huge and wide topic and we need to have some idea what the exam is like.

But there are some mock exams who are recommended by some users, which one do you think are good ?

David M Spring Professional Practice Exam, highly recommended by a lot of people

itestjava Pivotal Certified Spring Professional (Spring 5.0) - Practice Tests , 2nd most recommended after David M

springmockexam.com Spring Mock Exams , I've never seen someone recommended this, but it's actually quite good and hard

Personally I have tried the free questions from those exams, and here's what I think:

David Mayer free questions are easy, got 9/10, there's a question like "what is the abbreviation of AOP?", maybe those who try this free questions, can underestimate the real exam questions, but since it's recommended by a lot of people, I guess his real mock questions are in better quality.

springmockexam.com free questions are hard, got 3/10, a lot of questions are multiple answers questions without a hint of how many answers we should pick, and some of them require us to remember the API like how many getBeans method ApplicationContext has. Oh yeah, the web simulator is extremely slow and the worst simulator I have ever tried. Something that can be finished in 5 minutes can take up more than 10 minutes.

itestjava, just tried it and the free questions were harder than David Mayer free questions but not as hard as springmockexam.com, got 5/5 because coincidentally the questions are the ones that I know the answers although it's not that easy. But in their simulator, some of the explanation are not complete. The maker admitted that this hasn't been updated to the most recent exam objective(more on Spring Boot's topic).

And other mock questions/exam like fromUdemy.com are probably not even worth because a lot of reviewers say the real exam questions are far harder and really different.

Hi, Bonny.
You are right. The real exam is actually much harder than all those mock exams.
But as long as you study those tutorials recommended by the other people, you should be fine.

The topic is too wide and for every topic we can go really deep and understand it really detailed, but I doubt we need that much detail.
So I'm pretty confused although I have read some tips from members in here.
I still need some example questions that represent the real exam so I have some idea on what I should learn and focus.

Hi, Bonny.
I fully understand how you feel about the exam. No one can predict what questions will be on the exam.
If you follow the hints from other people in this forum, study hard in the tutorials and mock exams, you
should be able to pass this exam.
