Your question is a bit too generic. Can you define 'it'?
If you're talking about questions in the SCWCD exam, any real questions from certification exams that get posted are removed from the site. Buying a book is a good start.

If u want to design a mock exam than u have many choices while selecting a technology
For Desktp version in Java u can choose between AWT and Swings, Otherwise u can design these kinds of exams using Visual Basic and Delphi also.
Servlets and JSPs should be considered only than, when u r preparing mock exam which will be available on Internet only.

Maybe he is intending to create a set of original questions?

thank you for your feedback.
I am sorry, my question was not clear enough. Let me explain it now.
I cleared my SCWCD with 83% in dec'03. I have prepared many tips and questions during my preparation and now i want to put those in one place to make it useful to everybody.
I have already designed my mock exam with sample of 10 questions similar to real exam, by defining all the questions in a separate class file, and one servlet is being used to control the entire exam and display the result.So far my exam working fine with both tomcat and weblogic as well.
But i am bit curious to know how other mock exams have been designed? Is there any other standared and easier way to design? if yes, please explain. Hope my question is clear enough now.
thanks in advance,
regards,
ravi.

Another query on similar lines,I have an online mock test web application with a set of 30 questions.
Questions are displayed in a JSP page with "Previous" and "Next" button.
If user clicks either of button, the request goes to servlet and after some processing the next/ previous question is displayed. Now I want to introduce the clock functionality, displaying user the remaining.
I am confused how to go about it? Do i need to implement it on swings/AWT or Javascript?
(By clicking next or previous button, the time should not be affected i.e. after 30:00 user should see 29:59 only not something like 29:56) ...!!!
Suggestions please?
