Hi to all,

im a junior java programmer here in our country (philippines) and im planning to take SCJA certification. Actually i already bought some books for my review (HF java 2nd, examscam study guide and exam questions by Cameron McKenzie). This is the first time i'l take an exam from sun so where should i purchase an exam voucher? I dont have any credit cards so i called Sun Microsystems here in PH but the price they telling me is far from the price stated in Sun Microsystems PH web site ($150 USD!!!). Can i purchase voucher from prometric centers?Or just in SUN Microsystems here in our country? Whats included in that package? (voucher and etc?).

Thanks in advance..
Knives

i have read the FAQ of certification from SUN, it seems that i can only do online purchase, right? After purchasing, will they send a voucher or will it be in a printable format? Sorry for being noob..

Hi Knives!
Yes, you just can buy a voucher from sun on their website and I think you must have a credit card for this. After 2 to 3 days you get the voucher attached to an email. It is not possible to buy a voucher from prometric as for other certifications (ibm ..). The voucher will be valid for one year and you can schedule and reschedule your exam as often as you want. The price of the voucher depends very much on the country where you live and can vary quite a lot, e.g. 250 euro in europe for the SCJA compared to $US100 in the states.

regards,
Ernie
