The average score on Whizlabs SCEA exam simulator was 66%. Took all the 7 practice exams & final exam once, on the simulator during last two days before the actual exam.

Actual exam questions were of the similar pattern and little bit easier.

Had scored 69% and 56% on the two exams(number of correct answers are not given here).

Hi Gururaj,
Congrats for your result and thanks for the explanation.

Few questions regarding the mock exams and there level.

I haven't bought the Whizlabs mock exam package.
But I have used most of the free available on net. Plus have seen many of the sample questions available in various groups. ( like 288 question document )

I want to ask that as per your experience does it seems necessity to buy the whizlab exam or If I have used the other mocks plus the sample questions will give me enough experience for taking the challenge.

Few questions in the exam available on site I found wrong.
And I also scored 70% in its first exam. I have to give the 2nd one.
Even in this simulator the problem is that the mutiple choice questions dont specify that how much you have to select, so most of the questions I found were getting wrong because of that, other wise we could score more in these exams.

If you will reply quickly the it would be great, as I'm running out of time.
Otherwise I have to post pone the exam ....

Hello Manish,

I used only & Whizlabs practice tests. Was following this forum and reading the articles of most of the successful ranchers.
Peter Cook's experience was especially useful at this url:

It all depends on your knowledge of the subject.

Hope this helps. All the best.

I agree. Here's the link:
