I am one of the people who is beta tester for the SCBCD Exam. (Yes - I have received 2 e-mails from Evelyn Cartegana that proves this.) Here is the strange deal ==> At no place in the e-mails that I have received, and at no place on Sun's website or this website can I determine how to obtain these two REQUIRED PIECES of information to schedule my exam. VOUCHER NUMBER EXAM NUMBER ??? Yes - I sent an e-mail to Eveyln about this - but my time is ticking away, the deadline is rapidly approaching. thanks, Kevin
The exam number is/was 311-090. If you received a BETA confirmation it should have gone something like what is listed below: ********************************************** Congratulations, you are now confirmed for the Sun Certified Business Component Developer for J2EE Beta exam. Please read this e-mail carefully. Your electronic voucher number is: VOUCHER # voucher_number
Expires July 7, 2003 This voucher number is only valid for the 311-090 Sun Certified Business Component Developer for J2EE beta exam from June 6 through July 7, 2003. If you do not take the exam by July 7, the voucher will expire and you will have to purchase a voucher in order to take the exam. This voucher is NOT transferable and cannot be used by anyone but yourself. Should you not be able to take the Beta, please contact me and we will arrange to give the voucher number to another candidate. Do not lose this number. On June 4, 2003, Prometric will begin registration for the 311-090 beta exam. You will need to call the Prometric registration center in your region (see list at the bottom of this email) to register for the location, date and time you wish to take the exam. They will ask for the voucher number above at that time. Remember after 400 beta testers have actually taken the exam, I will close the beta, so don't delay and sign up on June 4th! You will have 4 hours to complete 183 questions. Also, you will be given the opportunity to provide comments while taking the exam. Your comments will be reviewed when selecting the final questions for the exam. Around the end of August, after the final exam has been published, you will receive confirmation of your passing or failing score. You will not be able to find out your score before that time, so please do not send us a request for your score. Once the scoring is complete you will be able to view your score in the Certification database, www.galton.com/~sun. You will also receive a score report in the mail from Prometric Testing. If you have passed the exam you will receive a certificate once your score has been entered into the database. Please see the Sun Certified Business Component Developer for J2EE beta testing objectives attached to this mail.
Thanks Randall. Because I received subsequent e-mails about the exam - I probably accidently deleted the original e-mail I received. At least now I have the exam number. I will try again on Saturday 7/5/03 to obtain my voucher number by calling them. If I can figure out my voucher number - I can schedule it for Monday (7/7/3) the LAST DAY!. Thanks, Kevin
Let me tell you a story about a man named Jed. He made this tiny ad:
