1. I am planning to purchase SCJD exam and wanted to make sure that I do not buy an old version (which I did for SCJP). I searched and found only one version (CX-310-252A) and (CX-310-027). Unlike SCJP, is SCJD is currently available in only one valid version?

2. This exam is very expensive and I am wondering if Sun offers any discounts on these vouchers any time of the year? Or any discounts for unemployed...? Also, can I purchase part-1 first, submit it and then purchase part-2 or do I have to buy it all at once?

Thanks!

If you buy from INDIA , I paid around Rs 12,000 for part 1 and Rs 4,500 for part 2 (Discount time).
can I purchase part-1 first, submit it and then purchase part-2 or do I have to buy it all at once?

I bought part-1, prepared it and at the final stage of submission, payed money for part-2.

Hi guy!
First of all, you need to think yourself about, if you truly need this certified? If the answer was "yes", so, this certified is not expensive. Only what you going to learn with it, is more important, than any other thing.

Please!
I know how important/not this certification is for me! When you are a stay-home-mom depending on spouse to pay for your certification, in a economy like this, you need to think/know/ask as much as needed! Everyone is not on the same boat!

I apologize if I sounded rude!

Thanks guys! I think I have to purchase directly from Sun since I live in southeast US and I am going to take the exam here. So wanted to know if Sun itself offers any discounts! Thanks anyway!
