by Valentin Crettaz, July 2003
Enthuware's JWebPlus 7.0 is one of the leading exam simulators for the Sun Certified Web Component Developer (SCWCD) certification exam available on the market. The simulator has been developed by people with large experience who wrote also the best seller book SCWCD exam study kit published by Manning.
FeaturesThe tool features a searchable question bank that contains 420 accurate and well-designed questions covering the objectives of the SCWCD exam (see Figure 1 for further details).

The questions are well-distributed over seven different tests and further classified along five difficulty levels: very easy, easy, tough, very tough, real brainer. Each question has a specific and unique identification number that makes it easy for you to refer to any question of interest to a newsgroup and discussion board.
The tool also offers the opportunity to build customized tests in order to allow SCWCD aspirants to focus on a specific set of selected topics or on those questions that pertain to a certain degree of difficulty.

In SummaryTo wrap up, I would like to say that 35 bucks for such a great and well-developed learning source is a real bargain. If used consistently, JWebPlus will guide you and help you walk the learning path to a successful certification.
Good luck and have fun :)
