Mahesh, JQplus is the only tool that same as exam. pass all their exams before you go. and when they say "Very Similar q's has been asked" they mean it. I saw about 6 same q's.
Also, try abilash 10 quizes on JLS his string and Math q's are good for the exam.
I didn't use the tool correctly and failed the exam(my mistake).
Good Luck!!!

I was very pleased with JQPlus. I took 3 or 4 sample tests, then the random test, then took a custom test with all the Thread questions (about 37 questions on Threads, that was one of my weaknesses).
Note that there are other active JQPlus threads out there (cert results and cert study) and I put my results in one of those. (Sorry I haven't been able to do the fancy links successfully)
I was a little disappointed to get questions outside the current objectives on the JQPlus tests, though. There is more than one question on HTML codes to call an applet. I think there was a MediaTracker question, too. I'm not saying this is a reason not to use JQPlus, it's more of a buyer beware.
The JQPlus questions have lots of code sample questions. As far as the level of the questions goes I'd have to take a look at some of the questions again. All the mocks have started to blur in my mind.
I found the certification exam less tricky than the mocks in general. Not that the questions didn't have tricks and traps in them, the trick just wasn't in the question. On mocks I'd occasionally miss a question just because there were a list of true statements and I picked the true ones but the question had asked for the false ones. I don't remember any questions like that on the exam. Or perhaps I just read the questions more carefully on the exam? :-)

Thanks for the nice review, Carol. We know that we have kept a few question that are out of objective (like on APPLET tag). We have kept them as they are very general and we think that it is better to know such small things. We have seen the actual exam springing surprises.
Also, we have commented on such questions like " This topic is not in the list of objectives". This way, the user knows that he does not need to woory too much about it and on the other hand he gets the information too.
