Hi all,

Apologies for the following grumpy grumble:

I've just gone to buy an SCJP exam from Sun in the UK, only to discover that the frequently quoted price of GBP �150 turns out to be exclusive of tax, bringing the total closer to GBP �175, or roughly US$335. I'm also a bit annoyed as I've heard that it's only US$150 in the US -- is this correct?

I'll have to think about it a little more before deciding whether I want to go for it after all. I don't like the idea that I'm being massively overcharged.

Prices do vary. You will find that $150 is really a minimum price.
For instance the SCJP 5.0 upgrade voucher is listed at USD 100. Converting that to CHF (Swiss Francs) gives about 130 CHF. How much is it here in Switzerland? 150 CHF? 200 CHF? No its 241 CHF!

So pay up. You are in good company

I remember being unimpressed when I realised that the price of the Sun training course I was booking was quoted ex VAT. I continued to be unimpressed when I took the course, not a bad Java course but close to irrelevent for exam purposes.

But that was all in the last millenium, I expect it has all changed and is wonderful now

Coincidentally I was checking this out today in regard to the SCJD Cert (I like to dream ahead!!) and in the US it comes to �237 sterling and in the UK it comes to �395 sterling.

Really very irritating.If Ryanair done cheap flights to the US it would be nearly worth the trip

Might check out the Irish prices next and just head home to do any exams.
