This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I have no business interest in http://whizlabs.com/ one way or the other but I have to say that they have done a very good job with their first-to-market SCWCD exam preparation tool. The first thing that struck me was how easy it was to install. (C'mon Java programmers (like me), you know how clumsy some Java programs can be to install and run). I was also impressed (and I would like to know how they did it) that it runs relatively fast in old PCs (original Pentium 133s, e.g.) The content (which is the most important part, of course), has been well thought out. The authors know their stuff and they seem to have read the O'Reilly books too! Congratulations to them.

Hi Tony, You along with rajat have really boosted my confidence about the quality of SCWCD@Whiz. Even i am amazed with the features and the quality of questions. Now i am very much hopeful that i'll also be coming up with the flying colors like rajat. BOL to all rachel
He he! Obviously Marcus has known me for a long (Internet) time. It was mainly his site that helped me get a pretty high score in the SCPJ2 Cert. (...Now if I could only get the same score in the SCWCD!) Saludos, Tony
On a related note, they have a similar product in the pipline for XML certification that is currently being reviewed by me. They have done a good job there too! Kudos guys [ PS : I donot have any business affiliation with Wizlabs ]

Thanks Tony, when I get closer to actually taking the test I'm going to need a good mock test and it sounds like this is going to be a good one. Everyone is denying any business interest in them... maybe we should all get an interest and go buy some stock ------------------ Dave Sun Certified Programmer for the Java� 2 Platform
Dear Tony, Thanks for your feedback. You are very true. I've working on java based products for years and like you me too amazed with the performance of the interface. Nice features. I had tried only the Trial Version. Tomorrow i am going for the registered version. In very few days this forum has grown with so many people and list of resources, like one made by Carl. IT really moves fast. Hope the same speed of recovery for everyone in US. All the best richa
I've purchased the tool and have a couple of comments: a) all in all it's good but I have found errors in one or two the questions, which should be cleaned up. b) general documentation could use another pass. c) I found the locked-down installation user keys a limitation. I was only able to install the product on one machine when I wanted to have it on another as well but the keys prevented this.
If I upgrade my PC I'll NOT be able to re-install the SCWCD@WhizLab simulator again. Even you upgrade your OS from Windows 95 to 98, or 98 to ME, or ME to XP, or to NT or 2000, the original user key will NOT work again. That's exactly the reason why I bought JWebPlus instead of it.

Hi, I am using scwcdwhiz and am quite happy with it. Regarding using it on different machines, you just need to write to them and they immediately provides the new keys. I think people thought, even myself at the first stage, that you will need to purchase another license. Now i've been preparing both at work and home. I think they should mention it on their site that you can work at different machines without purchasing the new license. All the best to all of you jacob
Thanks jacob, even i was under the same impression. But its mistake on their part to not clarify. May be to avaoid misuse I am happy now but i will write to them for not making it clear. Best wishes ronit
