Guys , I went to the testing center , and could not do the exam.The exam server was not accepting connections from the client machines and the system admin tried all he could without luck.Also MS people couldn't do their exam for the same reason.Now I can only do it on the 9th.I don't feel like studying anymore.It's difficult to describe how I feel at the moment

oooh man, thats painful to hear. I have an idea, why don't you make a trip to some nearby town and try to take the test in a different center. You should be having quite a few test centres around right?

btw, where do you stay?

It has happened to me before when i was to take my SCWCD . I drove 60 Miles to the test center only to have this problems, I think Prometric have to get their acts right, and i think SUN exams should also be offered at VUE centers that way we have more options, and i feel bate berts, Kath Sierra and all the good folks at Javaranch should contact Sun and see if there is a way VUE can be added to Test Centers because i have never encountered these problems with VUE

That really is painful - I'll get in touch with our Sun contacts right after Christmas.

I agree, it would be great if Sun offered the tests through Vue. I as well as many of my co-workers and friends have had many problems with Prometric facilities. We have had multiple problems with tests not downloading properly, or the "Prometric server" being "down". The testing facility I would prefer to go to have both prometric and vue, and they seem to have fewer problems with the vue system.
