Not sure if this is valid question , just wondering if anyone would be selling the whizlabs scea software, since it is expensive otherwise.

Hi,
One of the whizlabs folks has posted a prior message that selling the product to someone else is a violation of the copyright of that software package; which it is.
Good luck, I won't buy that package because it is too expensive for the value. If you prepare with the two prep books that are out there and use all the free resources there is no need to spend $80+ on this test package. $25. maybe... do you hear that whizlabs!

I agree with u Noel..its a bit too expensive.
I could do with that, but then having 300 questions all at once is a "nice to have"

Thanks Lee and noel for your frank feedback!
None of us (including me when I used to prepare for cert exams ) need to have the simulator. You can surely pass without it. For years, certification exams exists and its only in last few years that study aids like exam simulators have come up.
But these simulators/test preps really makes difference in the chances of your success and the score you can expect. We've received really overwhelming feedback on this particular product, authored by experts with years of experience and ofcourse certified. I would suggest you to look at some of the threads in this forum and you'll find out for yourself. It has been matured over an year and has also been part of one of the newsletters by Sun.
Surely, the choice is yours but if you consider it I can assure you real satisfaction and value for your precious money. You can also avail our special promotion like "Buy 2 Get 1 FREE" if its really not affordable at its price.
Please feel free to have your inputs on our products/price/support at this place or at support@whizlabs.com. It really helps us build better and better products in the times to come.
Once again thanks for your feedback.
Good luck,
Pradeep

I think the whizlabs software is good but way, way over priced. There is nothing that ground breaking in it. Maybe something for whizlabs to consider.

I have never used whizlabs mocks. Now I am preparing SCEA and considerring to buy Whizlabs mock for SCEA. after going to their web site, I found it will cost me $89. the price is so expensive that I give up buying it. I hope the price be lower.

Whizlabs Software
I went to the link you provided for us. And I am so disappointed because the 20% discount is only for an existing customer. I never use simulator and now I am trying Whizlabs software. I am a potential, new customer to Whizlasb. I hope you have some special discount for the first trial order.

Sorry Whizlabs, but I have to post my experience and opinion about SCEA mock:
It did not add much value to me, even though the scenario based questions are well designed. What dissappointed me is that it is basically a list of some 200+ questions with answers. For that a price of $89.95 is too high.
It didn't teach me much more than what I already know from working with J2EE for a few years. Also a few answers are incorrect.
I thought even though I have implemented J2EE apps. sitting in an exam is a whole different story. So wanted to know what is involved in SCEA and to test my preparedness for exam. Maybe that is the purpose of your software. If so then the price doesn't justify.
If you really want to add value (of $90) then add material for Part2 and 3.
