Whizlabs harder than real thing?

Do Whizlabs tend to make their test programs harder than the real thing?

From my experience of taking their scjp exams, theirs is close to the actual exam's level of difficulty. I think its worth buying.

Hi !

I confirm this. I used Whizlabs for both SCJP and SCWCD.

Actually SCJP was quite the same as the real exam, and SCWCD is even closer i think.

For example, i took Whizlabs final exam yesterday morning, before my real exam, it took me about one hour and got a 92%. For the real exam, that i took yesterday afternoon, it took me about 1 hour and i got a 95%. So i think Whizlabs is REALLY close to real exam.

About the exam content and organization, it's the same as real exam. If you want to know if it's a good investment, my anwser with two exams/simulators experience is definitely YES.

I think i should send a link to this post to Whizlabs

I did the WhizLab test that came with the Khalid book for my SCJP but did not use Whizlabs for SCWCD. Judging by scores, maybe I should use Whizlabs from now on! ;-)
