I received an email from sun saying:
...
the prices for the Java Developer for the Java 2 Platform are as follows:
Assignment: EUR 280,00
Certification Exam Voucher: EUR 170,00
Both parts have to be ordered together - total cost:
450,00 + 16% VAT (Value added tax) = EUR 522,00
Our prices have remained the same for at least the last 2 years.
Unfortunately we can not adapt to the USD rate on a short-term basis.
It would confuse many people if the prices would change very often due
to the USD rate. We have to remain a certain continuity in our pricing.

522� is almost 595$, that's 200$ more expensive than in the States

I'm planning on taking the developer exam. So i checked the prices
for the SCJD on the German Homepage of Sun Microsystems -> 487� (16% VAT inclusive)!! Much money for a student.
Then I checked Sun.com. The two vouchers cost 400$ there which is about 320� and because I'm not very anxious for paying 167� more than necessary I wanted to ask if I can save the money by ordering the vouchers directly at Sun.com ?!
Have any European here done that to save money ?

Hi,
I live in Ireland (or the UK and Ireland according to sun) and The cost of the assignment was 280 EUR also. The website explicitly stated that the voucher was valid only in in the country (ies) UK and Ireland. We can only blame President Bush for keeping the dollar so low.
