I found the Whizlabs mock exams useful for training and estimating if I was ready. I used it during the last one and a half week. However, the real exam appeared to be more difficult. I suggest substract 10% from the Whizlab's result to estimate the real exam's result. The real exam took me also a full two hours intensive text interpretation, while I passed the mock exams in often less than one and a half hour.

A drawback is that Whizlabs is somewhat 'buggy' and some questions seem ambiguous, not always well posed. Also annoying was what I experienced three times in a row at 22:34 GMT+1: I was thrown out the mock exam, and Whizlabs homepage responded during 5 minutes an 'internal server error'. Is this a scheduled unavailability? But this is not a reason for not using Whizlabs.

Rene & all who passed the exam, what do you think about eEpractize software. I bought it 3 weeks ago and almost gone thru everything and in final mock up, I am getting between 80 to 90% as all most every single question in final mock up is from previous mock ups. Do you think, I am ready for part 1 exam now?

Rajan,

I can't answer, as I have no experience with eEpractize. My Whizlabs mock scores were +/- 80 %. The Whizlabs final mock is still quite unique.

You made me take look at their website. I was suprised that eEpractize also has mock exams for part II & III.
Is it useful for preparing part II & III?

I would like to hear more about experiences with eEpractize.

Rene, I am sorry as I couldn't make it clear that I was talking about part one exam only. I have no idea about part 2 & part 3 exams yet. eEPractize has 5 mock up tests in part 1. I went thru all those mock ups and then one final mock up.

Rene, if you use eEPractize part 2 & part 3 software, please update me with your experience as I want to use them once I am done with part 1.

Overall, how do you rate Wizlabs for part 1? Is it a must to pass the exam or just better for high scoring?
