SCDJWS mock tests and help – tried and tested
Before the actual exam it is always a better thing to give some mock tests to get a feel of how to prepare for the final exam and also to find out the weak points and to do a revision of the course material for them. You would be excited to know that there are in fact a couple of nice mock tests for SCDJWS. The ones I have tried and would advice include the following:
1. Whizlabs Test Simulator:
This is a good simulator which gives a feel of the real exam. But you should remember that this simulator is more tough than the actual exam. You would not fare well in this since it includes minute depths of the topics. But you shouldn’t feel that you are not prepared. Its the actual the other way round. If you do manage to get through this with a good score then you should be confident enough to pass the real one with flying colors.
Whizlabs isnt a free product. It costs around $21 and proves its worth in making you strong in the overall area of web services. If you want to try it out before purchasing then Whizlabs comes with a mini demo exam for free. It has a fixed set of questions.
2. xyzws.com – If you are in pocket crunching situtation the xyzws guys are to the rescue. They provide an online mock exam and its completely free. You have to register in their site and you can give as many times the mock test as desired. One more advantage of this mock is that there are about 200 questions which are chosen in a random order everytime you take this test. So don’t be surprised to see a new question even though you are repeating the test. After submission an explanation is provided for each question and the options for it and also a link is provided in case you want to clarify any doubt. Seriuosly, without this test I wouldnt have felt confident any more. It is quiet a balanced test and represents the same depth as the actual exam but beware, the same question may or may not be there in the actual exam. I had got only 3-4 questions from this test in the actual exam.
3. JAVARANCH Forums : You often come across a series of confusions when you begin your journey in the web services arena and in particular, with SCDJWS. So is there anybody to help you out?

You are given prompt replies to solve your queries and also they will share a drink in your name once you clear the test!
