Hello there ! I am giving the SCJP 5.0 Exam in one month ! i Purchased the Kathy SIerra Book and i need to buy a good simulator to practice ...
I want to purchase the simulator Sun Microsystems (The source provides ) it costs 75 $ I don't care about the money ! but i was thinking IS IT WORTH ?
I haven't ever heard from anyone if these simulators are worth buying to Help from the Exam
if not can someone Suggest me a good simulator? I don't care paying for it ! But i want it to be worth the money !
Best Regards

Time is relative so there is no way i can be late.

Well, I bought the Sun simulator a couple of months ago and I would say it’s a good tool to become familiar with the exam question type and level of difficulty but it contains only 2 series of questions (each contains 60 questions)which I found very little. Probably a good thing for the last day, when you want to do a final assessment.
I also studied about commercial mocks and so far I learn that Whizlabs and Enthuware are the best, but I don’t know which one is better since I read posts that complaining about both. Perhabs other fellows who try at least one of them can come and share their experience.

By the way you can try a few questions of the Sun ePractice exam from here for FREE!

It's not a bad investment. Sometimes, just being familiar with the test taking process, not just the Java, can help you in the examination.

Hi All, I need to write the SCJP5 exam. I got the voucher, while trying to register from a Prometric center, the tool asks me for a MySUNID. Who will have this MySunId? and whom to contact for the same. Prometric center is saying Sun offical centres will only be able to give the MySunID, When I call Sun center they are saying prometric centers are the one can give that ID. Any who has an exact idea of who will be able to give the MySun ID/ should I generate my self?
I agree. Here's the link:
