2 July 2003, I finally made it.
K&B's book really helped as did JQPlus mock exams.
Question I have: I noticed that Sun changed policy and now the Certifications are good for only 2 years.
Does THAT mean we have to retake the exam? Also noticed that the recertification exams will cost $100 each. Geeezz, if one gets all 4 Java Certs, that alot of reocurring expense (to me) and income to Sun.
Any others have info. Their site is very generic.

Hi,
You're right. Certification is also another major revenue.
Nevertheless, as the technology changes quickly, recertification is also important that your knowledge is up-to-date.
I don't think you need to re-take all the exams. Just re-cert the ones that you see relavant to your role.

BTW, congrats !
