EPractize Labs is the first company that offered software study book and practice mock questions for Oracle’s Java SE 7 Programmer II(1Z1-804, OCPJP 7) Exam to achieve Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 7 Programmer. The software guide has been released in the early stage of OCPJP 7 Beta exam.

The product has been already reviewed by tons of exam takers and the current version of this exam simulator is 1.3.  The good news from EPractize Labs is that they also offering Training Lab for Oracle’s Upgrade to Java SE 7 Programmer II(1Z0-805, OCPJP 7 Upgrade) Exam to achieve Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 7 Programmer  Certification under upgrade path.

Set goals against each exam objectives for preparation - This helps the candidates to focus more on specific exam topics during study.

Set schedule for preparation - This helps the candidates to measure the progress over time.

The Training Lab comes with Pre Measurement Lab with limited number of questions to identify current skill level in Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 7 Programmer exam objectives and also helps the candidates to familiarize with EPractize Labs exam environment.

The product offers theory guide in Basic Sessions with flash card like quiz exams to memorize the concepts.

To understand the exam objectives better, the kit comes with Advanced Sessions where practical examples/program examples are provided with flash card like quiz exams to memorize the concepts.  I like the coding related questions with combo box selection answer type.

The above components improves candidate’s knowledge level in exam objectives, the below components provide mock exam questions with brief explanations to get ready for OCPJP 7 exam.

You have quiz mode exam to check your answer instantly with timer for each question. This lab comes with customize option where topics, number of questions and time can be updated to suit your needs.  Exam explanation windows have an option to add your own notes.

The Mock Exam Lab is the critical component of this preparation kit which has preset exams similar to real exam environment with time restricted mode.  We can also have a customize option to select specific topic questions for practice.

The Final Exam offers a mock exam to judge your readiness to attend real exam. I recommend you to complete all the above component exams before appearing this test.

The product has an excellent component called Focus Lab to measure your weakness. Focus Lab stores all the wrongly answered questions in every lab. It classifies the questions based on the number of attempts. This helps you to select those questions that were attempted multiple times wrongly and focus your efforts to improvise on them. As this lab is an effort to track your short-comings in the practice, you might not be able to see any data at the start of the product usage and the respective buttons will be disabled.

The product also offers an option to save your exam resources (URLs or local files) for your exam preparation.

When you have completed any exam, you are shown a report detailing which answers you got right and which were wrong.  From here you may view the questions and answers.  Each question is shown along with the answer(s) you chose, and the correct answer(s).  Except basic and advanced session exam questions, each question and answer also had details of why the correct answer(s) are correct and why the incorrect answer(s) are wrong.

The report component provides a summary of your certification preparation with OCPJP 7 Training Lab. The reports show you your progress of all the exams you had attempted so far. You can select any exam – Pre Measurement exam, Review Exam, Advanced Sessions, Session Rewind Quiz, Mock Exam and Final Exam and view the reports from Reports Lab. The kit also allows you to save the reports on your PC’s local disk by using the “Publish Report” option.

The final component, assessment tracks your goals and schedules in four segments listed below.

Goals Tracker: It displays the tabular and graphical representation of your goals set versus goals achieved for every objective/topic.

Gantt chart: It displays the Gantt view of the lab-wise planned vs the actual schedule and the percentage obtained for the same.

Schedule Tracker: It displays the tracking information of all the labs in tabular format. It uses a color code to display the information. For a score of 80% or more the information is displayed in black. And for a score of less than 80% the information is displayed in red.

PPA Tracker: If you have successfully accomplished your goal, PPA Tracker greets you with a message that you have achieved your goal. Additionally you are also presented a Certification of Completion.
