I've successfully past the scjp and ibm's xml exam two years ago and was thinking about taking the scwcd exam soon. but when I had a look on the voucher price my decision suddenly got clear. NO WAY !

I remember paying about 150� for the previous exams ... now they want me to pay 210� !! what has happened ? are the exam prices somehow correlated to the barrel price or the situation in the middle east, or why did they get boosted like hell?! or do the people behind the scenes just want to get more money for the same piece of certification paper that's only serving for providing "pride and honor" (as stated in the scwcd faq).

I remember that ibm even doesn't send you a certification or something else that proves you have passed the test. Instead, you, the one who has paid lots of money for obviously quite nothing, have to "ask" them to be so generous and send you a peace of paper, worth 2 cent, to prove your skill.

I got a big smile on my face when I looked at the price for upgrading my scjp 1.4 to the new java se 5 version: 210� for an upgrade. just the same price as a complete scjp 5 test.

peter,

Good thinking mate. At least one guy here thinks like me. But unfortunately I paid 176 british pounds ( inclusive of tax ) and passed my scwcd 2 days ago. But now I feel its a lot of money. I would never ever buy any voucher for sun certifications. Actually previously I had planned to take up SCBCD and also rest of the exams. But now, such a whopping price, I will never go for it. Guys I also suggest to you to think about it and do certifications only if you are too desperate. Just read a certification book ( like HFSJ ) and do the mock exam at the end for your satisfaction. You will definitely know how well you have understood the concepts. Let SUN reduce the price to the original fee. What improvements has SUN made to the exam to take extra money. NOthing. I suggest you all to please ponder over this.

take care.
