In sun's website it says that "Prerequisites: Passed (CX-310-051/CX-310-300A,CX-310-052)"

Must I pass the 052 before taking the 053?

Anybody has any idea?

Thanks in advance

That's what a prerequisite is - something that's required before something else can happen.

So, in other words,

  • CX-310-051/CX-310-300A - this is being certified with "old" SCEA
  • CX-310-052 - this is SCEA5 part 1


  • - i.e. to upgrade the "old" SCEA to SCEA5, you need to take both 052 (part 1) and 052 (the upgrade) - that is, two exams?

    Correct?

    I think that might be a typo on Sun's part (you might email Sun and inquire). I think they meant to say that you have to have passed the old SCEA, and put the wrong number down for the multiple choice exam, since it would seem to me that an upgrade would simply require the prior cert and -053.

    questions: I'm SCEA (old version) and want to upgrade to new one. In sun's website it says that "Prerequisites(053): Passed (CX-310-051/CX-310-300A,CX-310-052)".

    Which exam I need to take for upgrade: CX-310-053 only or CX-310-052 + CX-310-053?

    Regards,
