Hi Sathya

What are the contents of the SCMAD exam simulator from Wizlab?

Does it only contains mock exams or exam notes/ guides also?

Thanks.

Regards

The new and fresh look of WhizLabs software version 6 is amazing... You will see the Quick Revision Notes for the exam together with the core mock exams.

The UI style is really cool, but I guess the contents are the same as in version 5.

Just my 2 cents...

Nope, it contains a very short revision note to have a look at that just before the exam. I can say that the exam notes prepared by one of the co-authors of the software, Sathya, are even more complete than that Quick Revision Notes...

Hope it helps...

While the core of the simulator comprises of the mock exams, we have tried our best to provide detailed explanation for each option in each question, including the wrong ones and why the option is wrong.

So, while the simulator follows an exam format, the explanations combined together may be treated like a guide!

The best option would be to combine the simulator with a good book on J2ME. Johnathan Knudsen's book is good. Other exam oriented books may be coming out soon.

Hi Sathya

Thanks for your reply.

> be treated like a guide

What do think about providing an option of purchasing your exam simulator with/ without COMPLETE study notes.

I guess this would be welcomed by all, since no SCMAD exam preparation book is available in the market, at present.

Thanks.

Hi Ko Ko or Sathya,

May I know where is Sathya's notes? is it free?

and for the new version, i believe that there should be some changes comapring to previous version, at least some mirror errors/typos should be corrected.

Thanks
