If you are in Europe, it's cheaper to buy the vouchers directly from US.
For example, SCEA part II would cost 334 Euro (=330$) instead of 250 $. It is a shame.
Anyway, there is a solution.
Good luck

PS. Just passed SCEA Part I- 95%.

95% that's pretty good. Common Architechture is a problem category. It's hard to nail down what that's about.
How much architecting experience do you have?
What did you use for preparation materials?
I see you posted your results in that other forum. We don't like that. It makes it too hard to search for discussions like I hope we're going to have.

It would be very helpful but this is what I heard from Sun!
Hello,
Vouchers are not valid internationally. You will need to purchase a voucher in
the country that you wish to test in.

Are you buying the vouchers one-by-one, or together in a packet for all three exams?
Swiss SunEd want total cash up-front for all three vouchers!

Not much - a couple of projects.

I bought a book at Amazon.com: "Sun Cerified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Exam". Nice book. I recomend it.

The main idea of this posting was the price difference in Europe and US.(I still hate SUN for that). However, on the other forum I anonced my result. Anyway, sorry for inconviniences
Best wishes,
Vit.

I phoned to US Sun Education and bought a voucher for the SCEA Part2 without any problems. Probably, because for part 2 your location is not important. Just download and upload you assignment from wherever you want.

One-by-one. I bought the first one in France, the second in US by phone.

Unbeleivable! And what if you someone fail the first part? The money will be lost? What if someone chande his mind?
If I were you, I'd contact SUN Education in US and ask them to explain it.

Seid, nice to meet you old friend. You can use voucher purchased anywhere in any place you want. For example, I was buying vouchers in the UK and passing tests in Ireland.

What's so nice in it? It looks like a schoolboy's compilation of most basic "surface-level" articles. Not enough information to become a real-life architect, of course.

Exactly! The book is good to prepare for the exam. To become an Architect you need more. I completely agree with you. Books like that allows anybody to pass exam, without becoming the real Architect. BUT it is still a great book to prepare for the exam.
