How to deal with out of syllabus questions?

You may sometimes encounter questions in our question bank that require you to know about topics that are not mentioned explicitly in official exam objectives.

The reason such questions are there is because we have seen candidates appearing in the exam getting questions on such topics. We conduct classroom training and we get direct feedback from our test taker about this. We also monitor forums for such mentions. We try our best to make sure that our users are fully prepared for the exam and for this reason we do include such questions that may seem to be on the topics that are not on the exam even though it increases our support costs due to users raising questions about the quality of our content.

It is very easy for us to remove these questions to avoid such queries altogether but we prefer to keep these questions in the best interests of our users. This differentiates us from certification preparation books because they are static. They cannot change their content to match the current set of questions asked in the real exam once they are published.

There are three reasons why such questions come up in the real exam -
1. The official exam objectives do not always mention all the topics in detail.
2. New questions are added to the real exam from time to time and they sometimes deviate from the official exam objectives.
3. New questions are added to the real exam on new topics for test purposes. Test takers are not graded on these questions but they don't know which questions in the exam are not graded. While taking a test, you should assume that you will be graded on all questions.

So if you are following a book and if you see a topic in our question bank but not in a book, we would suggest you to at least read the explanation given with the question in our question bank. You may read up on that topic from another resource if you have time. But don't ignore it completely. Rest assured that you are not wasting your time with our material.

All the best!

Should I use Standard Tests or Objective-wise Tests?

Standard Tests and Objective-wise Tests are two different ways of accessing the same set of questions. You should use only one type of tests. In other words, if you take all of the Standard Tests, you would have seen all the questions in the question bank. You will NOT see any new question if you then take Objective-wise tests. Similarly, if you take Objective-wise tests, you will not see new questions in Standard Tests. For the same reason, you should not rely on the score of Standard Tests, if you have already attempted Objective wise tests.

When to take Standard Tests

Standard Tests tests mimic the real test in terms of content and toughness. If you have experience with the technology, or if you are already done with your preparation from a book, you may start directly with these tests.

You should start with the first Standard Test. Your score on this test will tell you how well you are prepared for the actual test. You should make a note of all the topics on which you score less and study them from a book. After going through the book, review all the questions of the test one by one and read the explanation for each question, including the questions that you answered correctly, and then attempt the next Standard Test.

Important - If you fail a Standard Test, you should NEVER attempt the next Standard Test before going through a book and learning about the topics on which you scored less. If you move to the next test before doing that, then you will not be able to perform well on the real test.

You should never take the same Standard Test twice. This is because you will inadvertently remember the answers and you will invariably score a lot higher on this attempt. This creates a false sense of confidence, which will cause you a problem in the real test. Remember, your objective is to improve your score on the subsequent test, not on the same test.

When to take Objective-wise Tests

If you are just starting your preparation from a book and if you want to test your knowledge on a particular chapters, you may use the respective Objective wise test.

Important - We do not recommend relying on the scores obtained in Objective wise tests because they do not simulate the real exam. There is no guarantee that you will pass the real exam even if you pass a few of Objective wise tests. This mode of preparation is helpful only when you are going through a training program and being guided appropriately by a teacher.

What is the best way to prepare using Enthuware tests?

Our Question Banks contain questions organized as Standard Tests. These tests mimic the real test in terms of content and toughness. If you have experience with the technology, you may start directly with these tests. Otherwise, you should first study all the exam objectives from a book. You should also write lot of test programs to solidify your understanding of various concepts.

Once you are comfortable with all the topics, you should start with the first Standard Test. Your score on this test will tell you how well you are prepared for the actual test. You should make a note of all the topics on which you score less and study them from a book. After going through the book, review all the questions of the test one by one and read the explanation for each question, including the questions that you answered correctly, and then attempt the next Standard Test.
Our explanations are really thorough. You should not be surprised to find them more informative than even some books. So please make sure you go through all of them.

Important - If you fail a Standard Test, you should NEVER attempt the next Standard Test before going through a book and learning about the topics on which you scored less. If you move to the next test before doing that, then you will not be able to perform well on the real test.


Taking the same test twice -
You should never take the same Standard Test twice. This is because you will inadvertently remember the answers and you will invariably score a lot higher on this attempt. This creates a false sense of confidence, which will cause you a problem in the real test. Remember, your objective is to improve your score on the subsequent tests not on the same test.

Still Confused about Desktop and Web/Mobile versions?

I need step by step instructions to install your s/w.

The following steps are for Mac, Windows, and Linux. Not for iOS or Android.

  1. Download etsviewer.jar from http://enthuware.com/etsviewer/etsviewer.jar and save it to any directory.(Download blocked by your firewall?) Let's say you save it to c:\downloads
    After this step, you should have etsviewer.jar in c:\downloads

  2. Open a command prompt and cd to the directory where you have downloaded etsviewer.jar. i.e. c:\>cd downloads
    After this step, you should be on the command prompt in c:\downloads directory.

  3. Now execute the jar using the following command on the command prompt:
    c:\downloads\>java -jar   .\etsviewer.jar
    If you are using JDK 9, please use this command:
    java --add-exports java.desktop/com.sun.java.swing.plaf.windows=ALL-UNNAMED -jar etsviewer.jar
    This should launch ETS Viewer software.
    (If you get any error message, you probably do not have JDK installed on your machine. Please see this.)

  4. You will see the following screen.
    ETS Viewer
    Click on the Full or Trial version of the certification you want to use. ETS Viewer will download the appropriate question bank file from our server and open it.
  5. If you are behind a proxy or if your firewall is blocking ETS Viewer from downloading the file, you may download it yourself from our Downloads page.
    This page has Trial as well as Full versions of all the question banks. License is NOT required to download the full versions. So, pick the one you are interested in and save to any directory.
    Let's say you download JA+ V8 Trial Question Bank and save it to it to c:\downloads directory.
    After this step, you should have a question bank file with extension .ets in c:\downloads

  6. Click on the File -> Open menu of ETS Viewer. It will pop up a File browser, which you can use to browse to and select the Question Bank file that you downloaded.

  7. A License dialog as shown below will pop up. If you are using trial version, just enter your emailid and name and download the license. If you have purchased a license, you may either directly enter the license key or just enter your orderid and emailid and download the license.


  8. This is how it looks after successful installation:
