Dear Manish,
It doesn't matter even if the results are out. I will be here as long as i can contribute to this great place.
Yes, there is a high level of customization provided in J@Whiz. You can't only customize for the topic but also for the number of questions, time duration and difficulty level. The explanations are quite extensive and i believe for any mock, this is the most crucial aspect and there will always be scope to improve upon these.
In case i have still missed something, please feel free to write to me at kapil@whizlabs.com. I promise to address each and every concern of yours.
Warm regards and best wishes

Dear Deepak,
Manish is very true. Mock Test Simulators like J@Whiz are not mandatory.
Poeople have been passing since the certification came when these simulators were not there.
But i would say, they definitely add value to your preparation and improve your chances, besides saving time.
Warm regards and best wishes

Dear Nisheeth,
Thanks for your question!
I can very well understand your problem as this is one of the most common problems faced by our users and we have put in best effort in to address this.
In the current pattern, there is a significant contribution by questions on Threads (long synchronized codes, runnable interface related ones etc.), Inner Classes (long code based), IO (majorly testing your knowledge of Constructors of various Input Output Stream classes).
You can expect around 5-7 questions from threads topic. To tell you the truth, there is no short-cut to conquer this important but little tricky topic (one of the features of java which is not completely platform independent). In fact it was also a challenge for us to come up good questions on these topics.
I will say more than anything else, practicing by WRITING CODE will help. Never underestimate the importance of practice of writing code.
Still there are few things one should take care of:
a.) You should be aware of all the methods of classes/Interfaces of thread API. You should know the role of each method and the qualifier (like if a method is a static one or not) for each method.
b.) Get yourself clear about the difference b/w extending a Thread class and implementing Runnable Interface.
c.) Make sure you are aware of the possible ways to do synchronization.
d.) Be very clear about wait(), notify() and notifyAll() methods as part of synchronized codes. This is the most tricky part to understand. But i think the best way to resolve and be clear is by writing code. Robert Heller and Ernest has a good example which describes a case from the beginning.
I think the above points are important for the exam besides others. In case you need even more practice of questions, you can try out at least Threads chapter from more than one book.
We do have recommended readings for the topics like Threads, IO and Inner Classes on our latest faq page:
http://www.whizlabs.com/java-certification/java-certification-faq.html
If you haven't yet tried out our product, i would request you to do so .
Once again i will stress on WRITING CODE as none other method (be it J@Whiz) can beat this well-known method of learning.
I hope this helps.
Warm regards and best wishes

Dear Johannes,
Thanks for your question. I believe it�s a very important question.
You are very true, any such authority, not just SUN put their best efforts to prevent exposure of the actual exam questions.
We have constantly made our best efforts to avoid violating any such rule. But yes you are true, there is a possibility in which one can unknowingly/unintentionally commit this mistake. To add to your point, I will say, even if we make ALL questions by ourselves without looking at any Tutorial/Book/Mock Exam, there is still a chance (however remote it is) that our question(s) matches the actual exam question, specially because many of us had appeared for the actual exam (not just once but even more).
We are not aware of any such procedure by which we can submit our content to SUN for validation but we would be very much willing in getting this job done.

I would request the people at this forum to make us aware if there is any such procedure.
Thanks once again Johannes for this very important question.
Warm regards and best wishes
