Where can I find ISTQB mock exams with reliable answers?

I have heard that there are a lot of sites with mock exams but they told me to be careful because some of their answers are not correct.

For free or will you pay for a book ? – Phil Kirkham Nov 19 '12 at 2:19
It depends what you mean by reliable ;-) Reliable to pass exam or reliable to implement in practice. – dzieciou Nov 19 '12 at 17:49

Don't know how reliable they are, but some of my colleagues recommend this site which they used before the exam (and they did all pass):

I haven't tried it myself though.

Some good practice paper you will find at :

Main thing is concentrate on syllabus given by ISTQB :

As per my experience only some time questions come from practice paper in real exam. Paper is always based in ISTQB syllabus. So read , understand and remember each and every line of it.

I'm not sure if this is the kind of thing you are looking for, but here's one place:

  • I've read "Foundations of Software Testing: ISTQB Certification" by Dorothy Graham et al. For each chapter of Syllabus it has sample example questions, together with correct answers and reference to the paragraph explaining why it is correct.
  • On ISTQB site there is is also a free sample of exam questions and correct answers but without explanation why it is correct.

There are tons of Web sites with obviously incorrect answers. What I did here was that every time I did not agree with an answer I consulted it with Syllabus, Glossary or with colleagues during exam preparation training we had. We often did not agree with both unofficial and official (coming from ISTQB) sources but discussing and criticizing those sources taught me more than would learning the answers by heart.

I've found this site to be pretty good: My favourite though is the Skills NB site. You have to search for the course, but the tests are very well done:
