Is the JQ+ really worth it?

Hey ranchers,
I was hoping to get some feedback from you. Currently I'm use the KM book and have a copy of RHE's virtual test center. I was wondering if it would be a good idea to get the JQ+, or is what I have enough.
I know the best thing is to do a ton of mock exams, but would I be alright with what I have and what's available on the web?
Looking for you input. Thanks!!

A lot of it is personal preference. I used JQ+ and found it very helpful. The variety of tests available and the fact that I could track my progress using tests that I knew were comparable to each other was nice. You can also customize to concentrate on specific areas if you need work on them.
Other people dont need commercial mocks at all and do just fine with the free ones. I would say the biggest advantages to JQ+ and to many other commercial mocks is the number of questions (generally several hundred), the customizability, and the environment that simulates the real test.
hope that helps

Thanks Dave!
I like the fact that there are a ton of questions, increasing in difficulty. I find with the RHE Virtual Test Center, the questions tend to repeat themselves if you do the test a couple of times.
Your input helps. Thanks again!!

I am one of there peopel. Since you are asking
if what you have is enough i would say yes. I am
not saying JQ+ is not good.
Some of the free mock exams are really good. They don't have a nice UI but authors spent a lot of time on them. The questions are close to the real exam and clear. I found them very use like the
RHE sample exams that came with the book.
Just thought u might want to hear from both side.
Good luck on your exam!
