In this paper we investigate the efficiency of some simulation schemes for the numerical solution of a one dimensional stochastic differential equation (SDE). The schemes considered are: the Exact Algorithm (EA), the Euler, the Predictor-Corrector and the Ozaki- Shoji schemes. The focus of the work is on EA which samples skeletons of SDEs without any approximation. The analysis is carried out via a simulation study using some test SDEs. We also consider efficiency issues arising by the extension of EA to the multi-dimensional setting.
