This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Based on my experience with Whizlabs for SCJP its a real good simulator a bit tough tah real exam but learnt a lot while solving mocks of it. BUT for SCWCD using whizlabs than Enthuware has A BIG advantage that Whizlabs is giving 80% off in India so even if its not exceptionally better than Enthuware you can safely buy it (I hope the starter of this thread belongs to India) The website says that SCWCD simulator will cost 500 Rs.
Some body please confirm this to fellow ranchers. Also I want to add if we have studied through books/free mocks isn't it enough OR WE HAVE TO BUY IT NO OTHER WAY OUT??? Already cleared SCWCD Ranchers please let us know. It will be helpful to others also. THANKS!!!

I used Whizlabs for every exam i took (SCJP, SCWCD, and SCBCD). Each time I was satisfied with the simulator and the similarities with real exam. I got each time a mark for my "Final Exam" very close to the actual mark i got on the real thing.
Enthuware is good also, but I prefer Whizlabs.
About books, this is good, especially if you use Head First series books, but you SHOULD use an exam simulator to train. Given the price of the real exam, it would be a shame to fail because you didn't buy a simulator....
