Hi

I live in Canada. Can anybody please guide me whether I should buy an exam from Prometric Centre or direct from Sun? What is the best way?

Hi Phalguni,

If you buy the voucher directly from sun, it will cost $CAN. 200(plus 10$ tax)

If you buy it from a Prometric center, it will cost $CAD 300.

Before purchasing the voucher, on the Sun's website, click on the WORLDWIDE link(at the top right corner) and then choose Canada as the country.

By the way, I am staying at Mississauga, Canada.
I have just started my preparation for SCJP 5.0
Which city in Canada are you from?
Let me know if you are interested in helping each other for the preparation of SCJP.

Thanks!

You can buy a voucher or register with prometric or have a third party register the exam for you. Search the forum for details on all 3 ways

Thanks Neo and John. Before a few days on http://ca.sun.com/training , the voucher costed $200 and on prometric it showed $300. But today it shows $300 at both the places. So I was really confused. I bought an exam from sun and registered with nearby prometric. But it really costed me 300 CAD.
Neo I live in vancouver. John your examples in word format are a real help for people like me. Thanks for that.
