Does anyone recently pass the pre-assessment test and receive the voucher within two or three days ago? I just would like to know whether all 200 vouchers are gone or still left one for me....

Thanks...

Nick,
I didn't mean to take the tests, if I have to do my thesis in this summer... Now my advisor told me to do it in the next two semesters... So I can take ICED meanwhile...

Do you hear anything about the new SCEA? I am watching out the SCEA forum, but it seems that we need to wait for the SCJP Tiger beta exam period to be passed...

So, you are going to take ICED?

I guess so, anyway, after taking SCJP Tiger, the next one should be SCEA.

I don't think 486 will be upgraded, but 484 and 287 will... According to your experience on ICED 5.0, do you think ICED 6.0 beta will be free? Or how does IBM introduce us with the upgraded exams? Thanks...

IBM never introduces beta exams, and from WSAD 4.0 to 5.0 experiences, there are no upgrade exams.

But Nick, before this period of promotion, there was a promotion on ICED 5.0 like this before, right? With $10 for pre-assessment test and get a free voucher for the real exam... Thanks...

Yes, but the 2 promotions are same. So, Ko Ko, go for ICED 5.0, and you will find it is useful!

Do u mean that it will be useful for SCEA as well? Especially for 486?

It is difficult to say, but still, as I am not in Architect's level, and thus, it is not as useful as ICED.

Just like the case that you got your MBA, but you just have 1 year working experiences.

To all hoping-to-be-lucky peeople in the house,

I just wanted to be tell you that I have received a voucher for Test 486 this morning at Thu, 10 Feb 2005 15:33:25 +0000. So keep tight and hope to be lucky as I am hoping for Test 287 + Test 484.

Keep us informed as and when someone gets a free voucher notification.

BTW how can one know that all 2000 vouchers are exhausted. Does IBM post any information regarding this in any newsboard?

Ko Ko,

Wish you can get the whole set for ICED.

By the way, as SCJP Tiger Beta has been extended, will you go for it as well? If you need my help, I hope I can.

You lucky Marcelo!

I am worried if you ate the last portion of the pie. I guess I have a chance too.

Enjoy the pamper
