Which is the best mock exam simulator to buy? whizlabs or enthuware?

Ankit did you use any of those?

I personally just used Inquisition, examlab, Master Exam, a lot of other free mock exams and trial version of whizlabs, enthuware, javabeat and other commercial mock exams :-)

I tried Whiz Labs, javacertifications.net and uCertify. Each has their advantages and disadvantages. Out of the three, I prefer uCertify for the clarity of the text in the application, quality of writing and the amount of help. However, you can't cut and paste the text of programs to try out in your own compiler. I find it worthwhile to check the code inside a debugger for difficult topics. Certainly javacertifications.net is the best for this. WhizLabs, likewise blocks copying.

In the Whizlabs and javacertifications, the quality of writing is sometimes frustrating. Much appears to be written by people whose first language is obviously not English. Also, I found in both applications, there are some QA issues with respect to the accuracy of the tests. Some questions were marked incorrect. When I double checked by compiling the code myself, I found that my responses to the questions were in fact correct. After I found a couple of these, I got into the habit of having to double check every incorrect answer by copying the code and running it myself.

All the same, it's worth the money spent to go and buy a commercial mock exam. You'll learn a lot.

I used whizlabs and HFJ end of chapter tests. Then moved on to devakas exam simulator.

I haven't used Enthuware but there are good reviews for it
