I bought the SYBEX Boyarsky/Selikoff OCA Study Guide some time ago and on the front it states that it includes 3 practice exams.
I was just about ready to try these exams when Wiley switched about the address of Flashcards etc. that go with the book.
And now it doesn't seem to any longer have these exams - just the flashcards and quizzes - does anyone know anything about this please?
I tried emailing Wiley a few days ago, but have, as yet, received no reply.

Thanks for your reply
The address that I now get when I log on is:-
https://testbanks.wiley.com/WPDACE/Dashboard
I've just found:-
Choose Your Quiz Mode :
 Practice   Exam
(I'd not expected to find 'Exam' under 'Quiz')
So is this how I now access the practice Exams?

Nicholas,
Hmm. There used to be two sites. One for the older books (OCA and OCP study guides) and one for the newer books (OCA and OCP Practice Questions books).

The launch page is redirecting to the new one (https://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/Section/id-827764.html) for everything.

I'll create a support ticket with the publisher.

I needed help from tech support, but was able to register on the new site. =https://www.selikoff.net/2019/03/24/how-to-register-for-the-oca-8-or-ocp-8-study-guide-online-materials/I wrote up how I did it for anyone who needs help with that part. (You got past that part though)

Click "Add quiz" and you'll see the three bonus/practice exams.
