Hendersons, their practice exams are very similar (in some cases the same) as the entrance exams. I've seen so myself ;)
vce: english, methods, spesh, chemistry, physics, geography.

I went to Hendersons when preparing for yr6 scholarship/AP programs (only for one practice exam though). They are expensive, but quite comprehensive.

I went to James An for a couple of months in yr8 for MHS. They are less expensive per exam, but you can get some dodgy teachers. Other than that, there are far more exams = far more practice. I actually preferred James An. To get in touch, find you nearest branch (use here) and give them a call, ask for the 'Trial Test 8' program.

Good luck :)

I went to this selective schools course back in the day. Whilst I didn't get into MHS (and didn't put enough effort into the study for it), I think the course was pretty good preparation. It's one-on-one tutoring for half the price too, so yeah maybe have a look at that if you want to look outside the 2 companies you've listed. :P

They are a bit harder than the real. They mark essays harder too.
