Hi All, I am planning to start preparing for SCWCD, I am right now slightly confused.If I take the exam now..which ever is the version right now, what happens after the new exam is released in March 2004 or whenever ? Is this exam still valid ? or do I need to give some sort of upgrade ? I don't have much time to wait till March..I was planning by this month end. As I have experience in J2EE.... Any help in this regard is helpful.... Thanks Venkatesh ----------- SCJP 1.4

what happens after the new exam is released in March 2004 or whenever ?
The old exam will still be there, as you can expect this from SCJP 1.2 and SCJP 1.4. There are still co-exist after SCJP 1.4 is released more than 1 year.
Is this exam still valid ?
or do I need to give some sort of upgrade ?
Upgrade or not is solely depends on what you want. Personally, I wont upgrade exams unless the old one is really phase out, or there is a special promotion (like my SCJP 1.4, I got a 75% off discount ) Nick.
Is there a major difference between the new and old exam..How do they differ ? any suggestions....
According to the posts here, there are around 40% different, and Mr. Bates said the new exam is more difficult that the current one. You may obtain more details in this post: Update: (but NOT final) SCWCD beta news The new topics includes: - Filters - JSLT - Expression Language - Some additional design patterns
Do you know where to apply for vouchers ? Is it late now ?
HI Venkatesh U need to send a mail to SunCert@thomson.com. Confirmation Mail with a voucher number will be mailed to u if they are still available. Give it a try. New year might just turned out to be lucky for you.....
