- Is it possible to stop-and-continue in the middle of training?
- Once I'm done with it, how easy is it to unstall from my company laptop/workstation?

I have downloaded the trail version and tried to have a feel of the simulator.

Complete training is divided into 12 steps and few of them are below and the questions against them

Sessions - I have a hand book (paper back), how are these sessions different from the book?
Are these video sessions or voice or just similar to book?
If these are video sessions, are they real time and need internet or the videos come with the package?
Mock Exam Lab
How many Mock Exams are present in the package?
There is a customization option also in these exams, What is the level of customization like can we choose questions from only specific topic or similar?
Final Exam
How many Final Exams are present in the package?
Can we customize the final exam also? If yes what is the level of customization can be done.
Focus Lab
What is this Focus Lab? Please share the importance of this Focus Lab?
What is the difference between the Exams (Mock & Final) and Focus Lab?

Along with above questions, I have one specific to update of the package...If suppose there is a change in the pattern of the exam (like write a program questions) how can this package accommodate these changes.

Lakshman

Hello Ganesan,
I have been a java developer for 13 years, but just now looking into getting certified. I have the SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 6 Exam by Sierra and Bates, but have a hard time trying to get through it.

Would your product be more interactive and engaging than just reading a book and doing the sample questions at the end of each chapter? I am thinking that maybe if something would just learn my weak spots and focus on them, and maybe do it in a semi-entertaining way, then I could get through the material.

Also, would your product follow the Sierra and Bates material? Perhaps I could use one a hard copy to the computer material.

Thanks,
Stan Gerick

Hello Ganesan,

I have a question about the difficulty of the mock exam questions compared to the real exam? Should I expect to score the same on the real test that I achieve on mock exams?

Thanks,

Hi Ganesan,
I'm new to programming. Do you recommend "SCJP 6 Certification Training Lab" for learning Java and programming in general or is this software designed for those who have previously studied Java and are preparing for the SCJP 6 exam?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Ganesan Ponnusamy.

Why would we choose SCJP 6 Certification Training Lab instead other good products like Enthuware or Whizlabs?

What are the points that make the difference?

Thank you.

It was interesting to note that the application supports "Descriptive Answer" type questions. I was wondering how do you evaluate whether the answer written by the user is correct or not? Just curious.
