New SCJP 5.0 Free Exam Simulator

Hi Everyone.

I made a new exam simulator software for SCJP 1.5 exam (SCX 310-055). I named this simulator as "Get Certified Exam Lab".

I simulated the actual Sun exam software environment in this software. This contains 1 diagnostic exam, 3 practice exams, and 1 final exam. Each mock exam contains 72 questions, including drag-and-drop questions. You can review answers with explanations after completing each exam.

All the questions were made by myself, and all of them are copywritten.

I allow users to download and use it for free, to prevent unwanted money spending for exam simulators. My actual purpose is that.

I would like to invite everyone to use my new exam simulator for free. To download, visit www.examlab.tk. Please note that this software may work under Windows platforms only.

Your comments are welcome

Hey the download link is showing me something like this

If this is your free trial server, EATJ.com shuts down your server every 6 hours. You can login your accout at http://www.eatj.com to restart it at any time and continue your trial. Or upgrade your account to BASIC or ADVANCED account

For BASIC and ADVANCED account servers, to avoid your server down, you can set up 24x7 monitoring. Login to your account and click monitoring check box in 7x24 MONITORING.

Please help me...
Thanks

Yes. Now I can download the exam engine. I have downloaded it and tried it. It looks good for practice. It even runs in full screen, so it gives the feel of the real exam. I would just like to suggest that please add an End Exam button to the engine so that the exam can be ended anytime.

It is good to see that people help others for free.. Thanks for the mock exam

Remember, I used the real Sun exam environment simulation in this simulator. Do you remember? The real Sun exam doesn't show the "End" button, unless you have completed/reached all of the questions. Because of this, I didn't add an End button their.

As the real Sun exam, the End button is available on the final review screen only.

If you think that this simulator is good, please let others to know about this simulator: www.examlab.tk and www.scexamlab.tk

Thanks for the comment.

Actually I have not given SCJP yet. So I don't know whether end exam is available on it or not. I was just trying to say that I ran the program as a test but had to use task manager to end it. And I didn't find any review button too. Can you please tell me where the Review button is...

After you complete/reach the last question (question number 72), just click the Next button. The review screen will be their. The "End Exam" button is available on that screen only. It is same as to the real Sun exam.

I don't know what is the problem with it, but everything is working correctly. Click the following URL and check again. If it is not working, it may be a problem with your web browser or your ISP.

I didn't check it under Vista platform. But I think it should be work. However, I recommend you to close the vista sidebar before running the exam.

Please tell me, if you unable to run it on Vista.

Microsoft JET driver is a 3rb part utility only. This will be installed, only after the exam lab installation.

Please check "Start --> All Programs --> Exam Lab"
OR
"C:\GetCertified Exam Lab for SCJP 5.0\" folder.

Please let me know what should I do this? Should I contact Sun to get a permission?

Otherwise, I think I have to close my web site.


Well, if you are not sure, then... why don't you create a different logo? Or not have a logo?

Hi,
I didn't check my software under Windows Vista platform. It may be or not work on Vista. As I said in my web site, this works well under Windows 9x, 2000, me, and XP.

However, Edmen Tay said as following:

I used "4shared" file sharing service to share the installation file of this simulator.

Sometimes, you may experience some errors after completing the form at www.examlab.tk however, please understand that it is not an error with me or my web site. It is an error with the "4shared" service; I think it just because of the network traffic to their web site www.4shared.com

Oh!
Before starting the exam, the simulator will tell you,...
"Attention: You have to adjust your screen resolution to 1024 by 768 pixels; before continuing. Click Info button for more information"

And there is a "Info" button which tells you how to do it.

Probably you didn't read it, isn't it?

Please exit from the exam simulator and change the resolution, and then start the exam again. Now the Next button will appear.

the simulator looks really good.. I tried out a few questions, and as ankit said, it would have been better if there is a way to end the exam before all the questions are done.

Good work.. keep it up..

I think that you know the reason, why there are no "End Exam" button available initially.

If there was "End Exam" button in my simulator, you may be confused in the exam, because there are no "End Exam" button initially available on the exam. You have to reach the question number 72 to see the "End Exam" button.

Thanks for the comment!

I agree there is no "END EXAM" button in the test. The simulator should as close to the real environment as possible.

Thank you for the great product!

I think it would be easier if you maintain versions so that the end user knows when it is updated

Thanks for your suggestion.
However, I could not continuously release updates of this, because I'm currently preparing for another Sun exam.
However, if any critical error or bug found, I'll upgrade it as soon as possible, and all of you will be notified about that via JavaRanch...!

Hi Marcus,

Can you tell me about the questions in the real exam? Are they hard like in this Devaka's simulator? Please also tell me about your score on the real exam, and in this simulator.
