HI

I have Prepared K& S Book . Now I have started doing mock tests. I have 1.4 and 1.5 Cd. But guys are discussing some other mocks like "Devaka" mocks like that. but I am not aware of that exams. Anyone please suggest me some mocks and where can I get those Mock tests.

The FAQ have a detailed list of mocks:
http://faq.javaranch.com/java/ScjpFaq#preparation

Personally, I would start with Devaka's ExamLab, as it appears to be excellent and free (but be sure to donate for Devaka's great product, which much effort must have gone into.)

I can recommend Enthuware as well (do a search for it.)

But, most importantly, read the forums, read the API, and if necessary, consult The Java Language Specification (free from Sun) and make a lot of practice programs to clarify doubts.

Maybe some of the people which have completed already the exam with great success can share the methods that they followed.


All code in my posts, unless a source is explicitly mentioned, is my own.

Ruben, Thanks for showing your interest of ExamLab; however providing donation is NOT MANDATORY, while this is a freeware. You CAN donate ONLY if you please.

Has anyone experienced difficulty running the Exam Lab Simulator for SCJP 5.0?

When I try to run this program I get the following 2 error dialogs

1) Error with internal exam database. Please login as Administrator… etc…
Even though I am logged in as Administrator

2) Class not registered… etc…

I suspect these problems may be something to do with trying to run this program from behind a proxy (for access to internet)
Is there anything I can do to allow this program to run?

Thanks
J Armstrong

If you are running on Vista o/s, that is the problem. Because examlab is not supported with some Vista versions.
If you are nunning on Windows XP (or other compatible O/S), please install Microsoft JET driver, which comes with ExamLab setup.

F.Y.I: Internet connection is needless, after downloading the setup file.

I am running Windows 2000
I have gone through the installation of Jet Driver several times both from within the installation process of your software and manually downloading Jet Driver from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/829558
I have tried re-installing your software after manually installing the Jet Driver but the error messages remain the same. These errors occur when I try to access one of the exams after I have entered my name and address.

Please let me know if you have any further advice!

Thanks

For sure, the problem is with the Microsoft JET driver.
However, I've checked this on several Win2000 computers; but I didn't get any error like this.

Well,.... In that case, I don't know what is the reason exactly; it may be with the Windows service pack version or anything else. :roll:
If you really need to practice with ExamLab, please feel kind to do it with another computer. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Kind Regards,

Devaka.
