Hi,
I am a certified SCJP1.4 and SCWCD 1.3 but i have no experience in WebLogic. however, i plan to take weblogic exam in a few months time. How can Whizlab Weblogic Exam simulator help me in my preparation? Is there any study guide? Do i have to buy any other book if i get the simulator? How many mock questions are there? I hope Whizlab can help me to reduce the preparation time and of course help me to pass the exam.
Pls advise. thanks!

You will need a combination of things here:
1) Personal hands on experience with the product. You can work with sample applications (WebLogic download is free form the BEA web site).
2) Theoretical knowledge (books, online study guide, etc). I would recommend reading my preparation article for some pointers:
http://www.whizlabs.com/articles/weblogic-article.html
3) Understand, practice and validate your knowledge against the kind of questions the actual exam will throw at you.
This is where the Whizlabs simulator plays an important role. The simulator provides a huge set of questions based on the kind of questions asked in the actual exam. It provides explanations on correct and well as incorrect answers, which is by itself a good learning experience. With whizlabs past record, working with the simulator will highly increase chances of (if not ensure) success in the exam.

I would like to add that you could use a book but the study guide online is great (again refer to my article for the link). As far as the number of mock questions are concerned, I think they are approximately around 500. I would say, that in addition to helping you pass the exam, these questions are a great way of validating your own knowledge while going for an interview, etc. Since the answers and explanations are all there, you are sure that you know it right eventually.

Thanks Dilip. You have written a very good guideline.
I have another enquiry about the Real WebLogic Exam. Does the exam questions applicable to real live environment?What i mean is if i pass the exam, the skill or knowledge i have for sitting this exam is enough to handle the situation in real live working environment?

The WebLogic 7.0 exam's scope is very broad. It covers almost all of J2EE, Web Services, development, deployment, administration, troubleshooting, etc. So if a person passes this exam, it means that the person has a good command over WebLogic and can work in real-life situations.
Note that to pass this exam, it is important that you have already worked hands-on with WebLogic Server (even if it is just the free download and small applications you build on your own). In fact I would higly recommend that for people who haven't worked with WebLogic Server before.
Hope that helps.

Thanks Dilip for your advice.
Since WebLogic 8.0 is out and i guess WebLogic 8.0 Exam will be out soon. If someone bought the Simulator for WebLogic 7.0, can he upgrade it to version 8.0 FOC since he changes his mind to take the latest exam?

bea skipped 8.0 so weblogic 8.1 is out. But i think 8.1 will be in market for sometime. There are so much difference between 7 and 8.1.

The Why Upgrade to BEA 8.1? says

Why skip 7.0 and go directly to 8.1?

BEA WebLogic Server 7.0 and 8.1 are very similar releases in terms of code base, standards, and functionality. However, BEA WebLogic Server 8.1 is more stable, offers important new features, and serves as the foundation for the BEA WebLogic Platform 8.1.

I found this question very reasonable and I checked with marketing before I got back to you all....and there's good news! There is an upgrade program and so if you buy the Whizlabs 7.0, you get an upgrade for 8.1 for the next 6 months. So thats really excellent news for those thinking about 7.0 or 8.1.
