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 am also thinking about buying the WhizLabs mock exam. But I wonder how people from outside the U.S.A. usually pay? Are there any unsafe aspects when using a credit card? Also, they say on the ordering page "EU member countries will be subject to VAT". Any experiences how much that is?
Concerning the payment options available for customers outside USA, yesterday, I sent an email to them asking exactly about security risks when using a credit card payment option through the web.
They told me that there is no need to worry about, just because all transaction is performed under a secure and encrypted page.
Of course that as any web transaction, there is a risk but I really think that there is no need to worry !
Another point I asked them was about the VAT.
The told me that VAT means (Value Added Tax) that must be added to Exam Simulator's unit price.
In my case, I live in Brazil, I would pay $59.95 (Exam Simulator) plus $11.00 (VAT) = $70.00.
They also told me that no package would be sent to my home, all transaction is performed through the web and once transaction is finished you will receive an email with the link to full version and a registration number to activate the program.
In summary, I think that "cost - beneficit" is very good once it's shipper than official Sun ePactice exams and contains much more questions.

Just in addition to my previous post. I also asked them about their Unconditional 150% Test PASS Guarantee and Refund policy
They told me that if even after purchase their SCJP 5 exam simulator I still don't pass the Sun's exam, they will refund the full amount that I spent on the product. Furthermore, they will give me 50% off on any certification exam simulator of my choice.
